Mrs. Diane Smith Ackerman, 76, left this world to be with the Lord on Sunday, March 27, 2022, at her residence.
Born February 11, 1946, in Alabama, she was a daughter of the late Woodrow Wilson Smith and the late Cora Dunaway Smith. Diane was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, she truly had a heart of gold. She enjoyed doing puzzle books, reading, playing her zoo game on Facebook, and just sitting under the tree in her yard enjoying the fresh air with a big love for red cardinal birds. Diane loved most of all spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. You will always be in our hearts forever and a day! Roll Tide Roll!
