The Rev. Eddie Jent officiated with burial in Old Liberty Baptist Church Cemetery in Warren County. Survivors include one son, three grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
*Note from submitter: It was a privilege and joy to know Mrs. Jent. I treasure the letters that she wrote me about Ackerman family history, and I wish I had been able to record my telephone conversations with her. She was an accomplished family researcher--before the days of the internet. Her report on the Goodrum family is available on the Allen County, Kentucky Rootsweb site (http://www.rootsweb.com/~kyallen/Goodrum1.htm). It is thorough, illuminating, and touching. We regret that she did not publish information on her Ackerman line, for she knew many wonderful handed-down stories. My personal regret is that I was unable to honor her request that I determine the name of her great-grandmother, the first wife of Jacob Ackerman.
