October 4, 2019
On Friday, October 4, 2019, Bonnie Jean Ackert (nee Fisher) passed away peacefully at the age of 74. Bonnie, the wife of Ernest Ackert for 53 years, mother to Jeff & Tracy Ackert of Port Elgin, Becky & Jairus Maus of Paisley, and Mary & David Moss of Waterloo. Much loved Grandmother of Jacob & Joey Ackert, Lauren, Emily & Cameron Maus, and Hudson & Anderson Moss. Bonnie will also be missed by her mother, Isabel Fisher of Palmerston, her sister Nancy & Dr. Rae Fischer of Listowel, her sister-in-law June Shouldice of Shallow Lake and her nieces and nephews. Bonnie was predeceased by her father Bert Fisher of Atwood, her in-laws Raynard & Hilda Ackert and Caroline Ackert, and her brother-in-law Rob Shouldice. A graduate of Stratford School of Nursing in 1966, Bonnie grew up in Atwood. After being introduced to a handsome farmer from Holyrood, Bonnie and Ernest began their married life at Hilray Farms. They were blessed with three children and enjoyed farm life until a change of scenery in the late '80s to Port Elgin. Bonnie was always a gracious support to Ernest and his business endeavors. Retirement years were enjoyed thoroughly on the beach...between south Florida and at home in Lurgan Beach. Bonnie's life was long and happy. She experienced great love, adventure, and the joy of family and friends. The final chapter in Bonnie's story involved the challenges of Alzheimer's Disease. With the support of her family, the Alzheimer's Society, and the incredible compassion of her caregivers at Highview Residences Dementia Home in Kitchener, Bonnie was able to end her time on earth the way that she lived it - with dignity and grace.
