Rosemary Ackley | 80
Rosemary Ackley, 80, of 125 Fairview Road, Kersey, passed away Saturday, November 6, 2021, at Elk Haven Nursing Home, after a brief illness.
She was born February 21, 1941, in St. Marys, daughter of the late Arthur and Anna Herbst Miles. Rosemary was a lifelong resident of the area and was a graduate of Central Catholic High School, Class of 1961. She worked at Powdered Metal Products for many years, the green house arranging flowers, and volunteered her time at the Resale Shop in St. Marys.
On May 7, 1959, in the St. Mary’s Church, Rosemary married the late James R. Ackley, who preceded her in death on October 27, 2021.
She is survived by three daughters: Cynthia A. Herzing (Jeff) of St. Marys, Brenda L. Mohney (Tim) of St. Marys, and Annette Meyer Hanes (Ron) of St. Marys; by three sons: Stephen J. Ackley (Lisa) of Laurinburg, NC, Ronald E. Ackley (Dawn Cheatle) of Kersey, and Martin P. Ackley (Chris) of Kersey; fourteen grandchildren and sixteen great-grandchildren; four sisters: Christine Wendel of St. Marys, Jane Dixon (Neil) of Florida, Virginia Sorensen of St. Marys, and Kathy Shannon (Terrence) of St. Marys; by one brother, Charles Miles of St. Marys; and by several nieces and nephews.
Rosemary liked to plant flowers and ride horses. She enjoyed coloring pictures, had a love for angels, and would often stop at any garage sale that she passed. Luck seemed to always be on her side during her trips to the casino and when she would play her scratch-off-tickets. She loved her family and especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren.
Family and friends are invited to a funeral service to be held on Wednesday, November 10, 2021 at 12:30 PM at the Lynch-Radkowski Funeral Home with the Rev. Ross Miceli officiating.
