Granny loved God and her Family. She had a special individual bond with all her children and
grandchildren even down to the smallest great-great grandchild. Granny was an active member
of Pine Grove Baptist Church and served faithfully for many years. She loved painting with her
grandchildren and trips with the family and friends. Granny’s greatest pleasure was celebrating Christmas with the entire family. Another special occasion and an opportunity to see extended family was the annual Jacobs family reunion; she never missed one and the grandkids loved the 3 day weekend at Roosevelt State Park. Granny is dearly loved and will be missed by everyone. She was a unique individual.

Grandsons will serve as pallbearers. Honorary pallbearers will be granddaughters and great grandchildren.

The family would like to thank the Administration and Staff of Jones County Rest Home for the love and care that was provided for our Mother.
