Keel Hunter Ackerman

1990 - 2021

Fort Collins


Keel Hunter Ackerman, 31, died on Saturday, April 10, 2021. 

Cynthia Ackerman was blessed to give birth to her on January 20, 1990. 

Keel spent most of her life in the mountains painting, writing, reading, watching the visiting bears, mountain lions, deer, and fox and dogs playing. Best of all she would fly up and down the mountains on her horse. 

Later Keel was diagnosed with a rare, physically degenerative syndrome. It destroyed her body but not her mind. No matter the circumstances her incredible breadth of knowledge, wisdom beyond her years, compassion and quick wit made her a person everyone wanted to spend time with. 

She is survived by her mother, Thea Ackerman, her great aunt; Carolyn Ackerman- Wilkinson, aunt; Chris Machen, aunt; Bunny Mason, Hilary and Ken Stacey, and twenty cousins. 

To donate, please go to and search Fort Collins, CO, for the Keel Ackerman Celebration of Life Gathering by Debra Faber. The gathering will take place later in May of June.
