Nettie Anne Peck Aker (Sarge), 88 passed into the arms of our Lord on February 20th, 2019 at JSUMC with all of her loving family by her side. She lived the most magnificent life any individual could imagine. Not only was she the wife of Donald for the past 64 years, she was the world’s best mom to Mary Anne (Jody); Billy (Roseann); Fred (JeanAnn); and Clifford (Karel). Additionally she was mom to so many others, which include Tracy and way too many others to name. Nettie Anne lived in Chicago until enlisting in the US Army in 1950, a service she was proud of and earned her the family nickname of Sarge. While serving in Japan she met the love of her life, Don and six weeks later married. She returned stateside residing in West Orange, NJ where she raised her family until moving to Belmar, NJ in 1968. In Belmar, she became well known to many and was very involved in the community and several organizations. One of her most cherished honors was being named the Deputy Grand Marshall of the Belmar St. Patrick’s Parade in 2013, sharing the honor with a longtime friend and co-hort. So many of her loving memories came from the many many cruises she shared with friends and family.
