ROCKPORT, TEXAS Audrey Jacobson, 83, a longtime resident of the Hi-Line area, died of natural causes Sunday, Aug. 5, in Rockport, Texas.
The Guest Book is expired.
Charles Marshall Funeral Home of Rockport handled arrangements. A memorial service for both Audrey and her son, Jay, who passed away recently, will be held at a later date.
Audrey was born in Calvin, N.D., on Sept. 21, 1928, and moved to Montana with her family during the Depression. She was the valedictorian of Hamilton High School's class of 1946. She married Gene Jacobson on Oct. 1, 1949, and they later settled down in Cut Bank, where they raised their family of three boys. Audrey's passion was following the activities of her children and grandchildren; she rarely missed an event in which they were involved. Audrey also enjoyed bowling and playing golf with her friends. She worked as a bookkeeper with her brother Del Gage for many years before moving across the mountains to Columbia Falls and later retiring to spend time at Flathead Lake and in Arizona.
Audrey is survived by her two sons, Terry (Beverly) and Greg (Lori); two brothers, Allan and Del Gage; and a sister, Marilyn Parker. She adored her three grandchildren, Todd (Aubrey), Katy, Jesse and three great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Gene, and her son Jay, who recently passed away.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that you make donations to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America.
