Mom spent a life in service to others -- her husband of almost 64 years, family and anyone in need. She loved providing food and clothing for those in need. Our family lost someone special -- someone that overcame a lifelong struggle with medical depression by looking outward to provide for the needs of those with less than she had. For this family she served as a great example of faith, love and generosity. We will miss her! Laura Acker-Ketner, February 19, 2010
