Kathleen Ackert, 66 years of age, passed away on Sunday, October 10 at home in Guilderland NY surrounded by her loving husband and children. Born in Albany on July 29, 1955 to Elizabeth (Butlin) Daguillo and the late Samuel Daguillo. She was one of six children and graduated from Guilderland High school.
Kathleen was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was happiest surrounded by her family. She decided to go back to school at 45 to become a Medical Assistant as her passion was helping others and she retired from the Endocrine Group in 2019 to spend more time with her grandchildren. Kathleen loved to garden, watch her grandchildren play sports and go to the ocean with family. Anywhere her family was, is where she wanted to be.
Kathleen is survived by her loving husband of 50 years, Norris Ackert, children Hope (David) Hardwick, Heather (Todd) Harrigan, Norris (Raquel) Ackert III, grandchildren Samantha and Brianna Hardwick, Aiden and Cooper Harrigan, Kyler, Ryan and Brielle Ackert, siblings Karen (Joe) Vivenzio, Pauline (Natalie) Zolner, predeceased siblings Samuel Daguillo, Christine (Kenneth) Sagendorf, Gerald (Cheryl) Daguillo and several nieces and nephews.
