Obituary For Dorothy "Tudy" Ake

Dorothy “Tudy” Ake, passed away peacefully in Albuquerque, NM on September 2, 2021. She was born Dorothy Lu Osburn in Lovington, NM in September 11, 1931.

She was a graduate of Lovington High School and the University of New Mexico. For the last 47 years she lived on the C-N Ranch near Datil, NM. Dorothy worked as a teacher and coach for many years in both Silver City and Albuquerque, but most of her life she lived and worked on ranches in Catron County, NM. She coached many different sports at Silver High School including volleyball, track, basketball, and gymnastics. Dorothy loved attending high school sporting events especially if one of her children or grandchildren were participating.

Dorothy also loved to travel and made many trips to see new places and visit with old friends and relatives. Even at 89 years old she could still be found driving a pickup with a trailer and horses to a rodeo with one of her granddaughters. Dorothy was a member of the Catron County Cowbells and the booster club for Datil Schools. She loved to shop, work in her yard, and was always available to provide advice to her children, grandchildren, and friends.

She was a loving sister, mother, and grandmother who lived a long and active life and will be missed by all.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her mother, Jesse Lu Osburn of Lovington, NM; her brother, Billy Frank Osburn; and her husband, Marvin Ake.

She is survived by her sisters: Martha Ann Land of Lovington, NM, Mary Jane Fisher of Lovington, NM and Eva Dow Walden of Olton, TX. She is also survived by her four children: Hop Lee of Durango, CO, Trudy Isaacks of Las Cruces, NM and Tracy Lee of Las Cruces, NM, from her first husband Bob Lee, and Tammy Kiehne of Datil, NM from her husband Marvin Ake. Dorothy had eight grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, cousins, and friends.

Services are being held at the Datil School in Datil, NM at 10:30 A.M. on Saturday, September 11, 2021 which would have been her 90th birthday.
