Obituary of Dorothy Marie Ackles

MAY 18, 1928 - Nov. 8, 2022 

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dorothy Marie Ackles at the age of 94. She is predeceased by her husband of 58 years, Earl Norman Ackles. She was a loving mother to Blair (Jan), Nanci Shuker (Dave) and Carol Lansky (John). Her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought so much joy to her life. Dorothy made every family gathering so special and entertaining for the whole family, especially the grandchildren, and still enjoyed playing games with them later on when they came to visit. She was an amazing cook, she loved to dance and had an endless amount of energy and rhythm. Her golf game was second to none with 2 hole-in-ones at the Southbrook Golf Course where her and Earl were long time members. She also enjoyed years of playing bridge, canasta and bid-euchre especially in the past few years with her friends at Seasons Retirement Home. Our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all the staff at Seasons for their friendship and care they gave our mother and to Dr. Bielecki for all the care she has provided over the years. Special thanks and appreciation also to Dr. Soloman and the staff at St. Peters 3rd floor East for their care and compassion of our Mom. Visitation will be held at Donald V. Brown Funeral Home, 36 Lake Avenue Drive, Stoney Creek on Monday, November 14th from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. A private graveside service to follow. For those who wish, a memorial donation to the Kidney Foundation, Heart and Stroke or the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.  Online condolences and notes of sympathy may be left at
