Dulcie "Dody" (Ackley) Marble

The family of the late
Dulcie "Dody" (Ackley) Marble
Dody was born on May 17, 1920 in Worcester, MA, the daughter of Ervin L. Ackley and Dulcie E. (Bostock). She leaves her brother, Ronald Ackley of Berlin and sister-in-law Barbara Ackley of Framingham. She was predeceased by her siblings Glenn Ackley, Joan Tomlinson , sister-in-law, Alma Ackley and her much loved husband, Harold "Snap" Marble.
Our matriarch, known as Dulcie, Dode, Mum, Gram, GG, Aunt Dody, will be remembered for her enthusiastic and expressive love for family and friends, for her knitted hats, handwritten notes, a love of music, her quick wit and cheery smile.
She will be dearly missed by her children: Judy Kearney and husband Jim of Salem, Susan Gately and husband Frank of Worcester; and Bruce Marble and partner Santina Whited of St. Augustine, FL. Her 8 grandchildren and their families were her pride and joy: Meghan Kearney , Patrick Kearney, Julie Gately Lynch, Maura Jereb, Daniel Gately, Jeff Marble, Bill Marble and Jill Taylor .. She was endlessly proud of her 9 great grandchildren, 4 great great grandchildren, 14 nieces and nephews and their families. She also leaves a large and loving extended family, friends and colleagues from Worcester, Cape Cod and Northborough touching the lives of all with whom she met.
A celebration of Dody's life will be held from 6-8PM on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at Tower Hill Botanic Garden, 11 French Drive, Boylston, MA. In lieu of flowers online donations may be made to Abby's House (abbyshouse.org) or Knollwood Nursing Center (knollwoodnursingcenter.com) to whom we extend our deep appreciation for their skilled and thoughtful care.
