She is survived by her beloved husband of 55 years, Richard Jacobs, Sr., and children, Christopher L. Jacobs, of Dundalk, Maryland, Timothy S. Jacobs, of Arvada, Colorado, Theresa A. Jacobs, of Ocean Pines, and Richard A. Jacobs, Jr., of Arvada, Colorado. She was a loving grandmother to David C. Jacobs. Also surviving is her sister, Kathy Knickrehm of Davenport, Iowa.
Mrs. Jacobs graduated from Immaculata High School in Davenport, Iowa, and earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Marycrest College. She was trained and worked as a medical technician, then vacationed in Europe and lovingly returned to Germany where she worked for several years as a Service Club director for the Armed Forces.
Back in the states, she worked for NIH in Washington D.C. It was there singing in a church choir, where she met a tenor in song and they married after a brief courtship. As her children grew up, she expanded her love for antiques as a dealer.
