Angeline (Angie) Rickert Ackerman, age 103, a resident of Country Meadows Retirement Community in Mechanicsburg and a long time member of Camp Hill United Methodist Church, went to be with her heavenly Father on April 16, 2019 at her residence.

Born on January 6, 1916 in Winfield, PA., Angie was the daughter of the late Ralph and Edna Hess. She married Reuben Rickert in 1935. The family relocated to Lewistown where she became involved in Children’s Ministries in the Central Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church and was certified as a Laboratory Leader, developing and implementing programs for the conference. She was elected to the National Board of Church and Society and was appointed to the World Peace Committee. After two terms on the National Board, she was called to the Camp Hill United Methodist Church (CHUM) as Director of Christian Education. Later she accepted the position of Director of Care and Concern.

Angie was active in many aspects of her church life including that as a member of the Chancel Choir for most of her years at CHUM. Her ministry with her church family and friends gave her the ability to always be looking ahead for opportunities to serve God. She lived her life as a true follower and was a fierce defender for acceptance of all.

Angie was pre-deceased by her husband Reuben Rickert, her brother, Bob Hess, and sisters Geneva, Helen and Nina. She is survived by her dear sister Evelyn (Dolly) of Bluffton, South Carolina and many nieces and nephews. Also surviving are her children, daughter Mary Anne Wolf (Douglas) of Phoenixville and son William and wife Beth, grandchildren, Natalie Foster (Ted) of Eden Prairie, Minn., Stephanie Diehl Chupela (Chris) of Downingtown, Pa., Jennifer and Ray of Colorado and Craig and Angie of Burnham. Her great-grandchildren include Emma, Sophie and Will Foster, Ben and Tanner Diehl, Nick Chupela, and Leah Rickert. Her extended family includes Kristi and husband Scott and children Zachery and Tyler, and Kelly and son Lincoln.

Our family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Country Meadows for the love and comfort they have provided for our Mother for many years as well as Residential Home Care and Home Instead services for their support to our family.

A Celebration of Angie’s life will be held at the Camp Hill United Methodist Church on Sunday, May 26, 2019 at 3:00 PM. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made in Angie’s name to the church at 417 S. 22nd Street, Camp Hill, Pennsylvania.
