I lived all my childhood years next door to the Ackerman families and have so many wonderful memories of each of them as well as the Hamilton family. My father (Thurman Stoehr) had such love and respect for Bill and Erma as well as Jessie and her girls. May God's blessing keep you safe and sheltered during these difficult times.

Ackerman Family, my deepest sympathy on the passing of Jean. She was a true pioneer for many organisations in Monroe County. She was very instrumental in helping get the Senior Citizens building built, and started many worth while programs for seniors all over the County. May God wrap his loving arms around all of you and bring you peace and comfort.
In Christian Love, Pandora

To Jean's family. So sorry of your loss. Jean was a great person. I met her thru 4-H and always enjoyed taking to her. I know she did great things for the county and was always such a pleasant person. We also knew her husband. May God comfort you during this stressful time.
