I was so sad to hear of Mrs. Acker's passing. She was my favorite teacher ever and inspired me a great deal. She told me I should be a writer, and indeed I am! She will be remembered and I am sure her impact is far reaching and immeasurable. Peace and blessings to her family!

Mrs. Acker was a great 5th grade teacher. I was in her class in 1983 and then remained pen pals with her for a few years. As an adult, when I was going for teaching, I observed and helped out in her class. I will always remember her, and the token system!!! Nancy

Ms. Acker was the best 5th grade teacher. Always tough but always fair. I am in my 30's and still remember her well. She truly had an impact. I never forgot how special a lady you have to be to have a name like "NOEL!" God Bless and continue to watch over us in heaven as you did on earth. you will be missed!!

Sweet Noel,

You were admired and respected, everyone loved you. I didn't know you very long but you became very special to me. I will miss our walks, little talks and your wonderful smile.
I will continue to live guided by the friendship we shared and our genuine caring for each other.
There is an empty space in my heart for a friend I will always remember and forever hold dear.
I know you are walking among the angels Noel, you are now one of them.

I miss you and I love you.
