Service: 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 13, at the Butler Funeral Home in Bolivar. Visitation: 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 12, at the funeral home.

Betty Florence Ackels, 86, of Bolivar died at her daughter's home Sunday, June 10, 2018, on what would have been her parent's 95th wedding anniversary.

We are sure there was a great celebration in Heaven.

Betty Florence Anderson was born on May 13, 1932, in Preston. She was one of nine children born to Alva Granvel “Jake” Anderson and Mary Cela Wilson Anderson.

She attended school at Morgan Elementary where she would walk to school with her siblings. She then attended the Preston High School and graduated in 1950.

When she was a young girl, there was a neighboring family that took her to a tent revival and that is where she fell under conviction. At a later time, she was saved in her bed underneath a big tree in her family’s yard.

Betty was married to W. Carl Ackels on July 29, 1952. They were married by Thomas Lytle, “a man of faith” at Burns. After they married, Carl was deployed and served in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict and was stationed overseas. Betty worked at Sears Roebuck’s store in Kansas City. She later moved back to Halfway to help care for her mother-in-law, Rosa Ackels, until her death.

After Carl returned from his service in the Army, they began their family. They lived in Halfway, where they raised their four children, Steven Darell, Anita Carol, Arminta Florence and Billy Lawrence.

Betty was a 4-H leader and a member of a Century 4-H family. She loved to grow flowers and tend to her yard and garden. She knitted many afghans and pairs of slippers for family and friends. She enjoyed raising dogs and goats. She was an accomplished cook and bread maker. But if you ask any of her grandchildren or great-grandchildren, they will tell you her no bake cookies were the best! In later years, she took on the hobby of painting.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Carl Ackels (1985); her parents, Jake and Cela Anderson; her brothers, Alva Wilson Anderson, Ronnie Anderson and George Anderson; her twin brother Billy Lawrence Anderson when they were 2 ½ years old, a loss that she felt the remainder of her life; her brothers-in-law, James Ackels and Carl Howard; her sisters-in-law, Dorothy Anderson, Shirley Anderson and Ann Anderson; and her nephew, Donnie Howard.

Betty is survived by her sisters and brother-in-law, Elizabeth Howard of Napa, California, and Kaye and James Thomas of Aldrich; her brothers, Gene Anderson of Dyer, Indiana, and Bob Anderson of Oakley, Idaho; her sister-in-law, Katie Anderson of Preston; her brothers-in-law, Samuel Otis “Darell” and Jeannie Ackels of Marshfield, and David Ackels of California; her four children and their spouses, Steven and Debbie Ackels of Halfway, Anita and Johnny Hampton of Bolivar, Arminta and Roger Hickman of Halfway, and Bill and Stephanie Ackels of Goodson.

Betty was very proud of her nine grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren, Shane and Aubrey Hampton and their two children, Chase and Grace, of Bolivar; Christy and Jesse Sheppeck, and their three daughters, Hannah, Allee and Emma, of Bolivar; Paul Ackels and his three children, Clarissa, Oliver and Olivia, of Pleasant Hope; Stephanie and Aaron Doutt, and their two children, Katelyn and Elijah, of Fort Carson, Colorado; Elizabeth Hickman and her daughter, Ivy, of Halfway; Matthew Hickman of Halfway; Colton Ackels, Carl Ackels and Mattie Ackels all of Goodson. Many arguments were had over the years of who was Granny’s favorite, as each one was convinced they were the favorite! She had an unlimited amount of love for each grandchild and great-grandchild. She always gave each of them the gifts of her time, love and words of wisdom.

Betty has left her family with a legacy of love, kindness and compassion. She will live in our hearts forever.

Funeral services for Betty will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 13, at the Butler Funeral Home in Bolivar. Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 12, at the funeral home. Burial will follow services Wednesday in Reed Cemetery, Halfway.
