The community was shocked Tuesday by the announcement that Mrs. Max Ackert had passed away. She was ill a few days since but had improved. But pneumonia developed and in her weakened condition she was unable to withstand the disease. Mrs. Ackert was unfortunate in some ways. She lost both of her parents when she was quite small, and that is a hardship upon any child. Still she grew to womanhood and was possessed of a sunny dispositon, always seemed happy and made many friends.
