ACKER, Elaine Joyce

May 5, 1956 – June 15, 2020
Elaine Joyce Acker passed away on June 15, 2020. She was born on May 5, 1956 in Calgary, AB. She spent a good portion of her adult life in Medicine Hat, AB and considered this city her home, where her heart was. She was a beautiful, passionate and free spirited soul. If she wasn’t singing, she was humming. She loved music, with Joni Mitchell and Van Morrison being her absolute favorite. CKUA radio was always on in her car. Her smile was infectious, it would light up rooms when she entered. She was so kind. She never judged a single soul. She accepted and loved everybody and always wanted to make everyone around her feel loved and accepted. She just loved loving. She had two children; a son and daughter and absolutely loved being a mom. Her daughter Sari (Sarah) was her everything. She has four grandchildren who have now gained a guardian angel in heaven. She was very close with her parents and loved her brother, sister, nieces and nephews very much. They were a very close family. Card games with her parents was an almost daily activity when they were together. Baking with her mom, especially at Christmas time, was one of her favorite things to do. Sadly, in 2015 she was diagnosed with dementia. The family is very happy her struggles with addiction and dementia are now over. She is at peace now and will always be remembered and deeply loved by many. Photos, memories and condolences may be shared with Elaine’s family through http://www.evanjstrong.com

She was predeceased by her parents, Ronald and Gladys Hinchliff; her brother Ron and sister-in-law, Anne. Carol loved playing baseball, camping with the girls, horseback riding and working.
