Rosemary Acker Obituary

Rosemary (Rosie) Acker, age 94, peacefully left her earthly body February 6, 2024. She was born July 2, 1929 in Marion, Indiana to Lora and Arthur Vermilion.

She graduated from Marion High School and pursued nursing at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.

Rosie married Alva Acker, Jr. in 1949 and resided in Warsaw, Indiana. After a difficult pregnancy, they welcomed their little 4 lb daughter, Ellen Sue. Following Alva’s death in 1990, she relocated and joined family in Auburn, Indiana. She began a second career in food services at Beth Nursing Home where she retired after many years.

Rosie was a dedicated mother first and foremost and loved her son-in-law. She treasured her granddaughters, their spouses and great grandchildren and embraced every moment with them. She especially loved her role as grandma Rosie. She lived her life with grace, faith, and kindness and always made people around her laugh. Rosie made friends everywhere she went and never missed an opportunity to go shopping, indulge in a meal out, or a Sunday drive.

Rosie is survived by her daughter Ellen (John) Dennis of Auburn; granddaughters Melissa (Sean) Gowthrop of Auburn and Kristie (Craig) Presley of Pleasant Lake; great grandchildren Boyce Nodine, Taylor Presley, Autumn Presley, Sophia Gowthrop, Griffin Gowthrop, and always special to Rosie, Timothy Wayne (Janie) Nodine of Waterloo.

She is preceded in death by her parents, one sister, and three brothers.
