Courtney Nicole Akard was born on June 10, 1990, in Paris, TX, to Blake and Dicey Akard. She departed this life to be with her Lord on September 18, 2019, at the age of 29.
Courtney was definitely a lady and was known for having the sweetest heart. She loved her family deeply and always wanted the best for them. Courtney always enjoyed spending time with her nieces and nephews, watching their favorite shows on her laptop, and giving them rides on her wheelchair. She had many people who loved her, but her mother, Dicey, was always her strongest supporter and faithful caregiver who loved and cared for her all of her life.
Courtney was the kindest person who would never do harm to anyone. She was the easiest person to talk to and always enjoyed conversations with her brothers and hanging out with them. She looked forward to each of their visits.
