Carol Ann Acker, age 70, of Greeley, Colo., passed away on July 27, 2008, at Centennial Health Care Center.

She was born in Laramie, Wyo., in 1937, the only child of Pangborn and Helen Hayes. At age 6, her parents made her the happy recipient of her first pony and elaborate tack from the Ernst Saddlery in Sheridan, Wyo., which was the beginning of her lifelong love of horses.

A graduate of Big Horn High School in Sheridan, Wyo., in 1955, she attended college in Rapid City, S. D., and Laramie.

Carol married Jack E. Chieslar and they had two children: Jack Douglas and Sheri Lynn.

After his death, she wed William R. Lilley and they had one child, Teresa Dawn.

Carol married George Acker in 1973. They moved to Colorado in 1975.

She worked for the Douglas County Colorado Attorney as a Legal Assistant. After her retirement in 1992, and George’s retirement from banking, they acquired the Owl Ranch on Wilson Creek, north of Simla, Colo. There she raised, trained and showed quarter horses, as well as raising Longhorn Cattle with George. They were each other’s best “hired hands,” and enjoyed their retirement years together immensely until 2006.

She was an avid and talented “horse person,” a member of the Quarter Horse Association and a participant in many shows, where she made countless friends and won many ribbons. She was an active participant and volunteer in several other organizations as well.

Beginning in 2002, when advised of her health situation, Carol voluntarily participated with the University Hospital in Denver in out-patient tests of advanced medications and treatments for Alzheimer’s disease. There, she earned their great respect, and hopefully contributed to future methods of cure for the disease.

Carol is survived by her husband, George; son Jack Douglas Chieslar of Saint Anthony, Idaho; daughters Sheri Lynn and husband Dave Bressler of Greeley, Colo., and Teresa Dawn and husband Stetson Tapp of Riverton, Wyo.; her step-sons, Tim Acker and wife Elaine of Omaha, Neb., and Tom Acker of Dallas, Texas; four grandchildren and four step-grandchildren.

Interment took place at the Elks Cemetery in Sheridan.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Carol Acker Memorial at Eldergarden Adult Day Care Center, 910 27th St., Greeley, Colo., 80634, or to a charity of the donor’s choice.
