Katie Ackley was born on January 22, 1930 in Lester, Arkansas, and she entered Heaven's gates on April 14, 2017.

Katie attended church at Church of the City in Spring Hill, Tennessee. She spent most of her life in the Clio, Michigan area and retired from General Motors.

Katie is survived by her daughters, Linda Hunter (Chuck), Smyrna, TN and Patti Hoyt (Jeff), Franklin, TN; daughter-in-law, Bonnie Ackley (Dale), Flint, MI; thirty-two loving grandchildren; sisters, Annie Sarrett and Emma Jean Wood; brother, Charles Ponder; family friends, Karen and Ron Stanbaugh; and many special friends.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Alton Ackley; son, Dale Ackley; grandson, Alan Ackley; granddaughter, Jeni Love; seven brothers; and loving friend, Ed Stanbaugh.

Katie was a wonderful wife, mom, grandma, sister and friend who knew the Lord, and her light shined with love, generosity and kindness.

Katie loved being surrounded by her family. We have many great memories of her playing cards, playing games, having fun and spending time together. She never met a stranger, and she really enjoyed having company and cooking wonderful family dinners. She was very proud of her family and thankful for all that she had.

Her strength and compassion will continue to inspire us. Forever in our Hearts and with the Lord
