Patricia A. Jacobs Haydu Obituary
Patricia A Jacobs Haydu

St. Augustine, FL

Patricia was born in Brooklyn, New York on Friday, August 13, 1937 and passed peacefully from this life on January 5, 2014 in her home in St. Augustine, Florida after a gradual decline in health. She was surrounded and supported by her loving family. She spent most of her life in the Princeton, New Jersey area, graduating from Princeton High in 1956. She had fun during her high school years being a member of the Slew Foot Three and loved being a Color Guard. Patricia worked for Johns-Manville before beginning her family. She also enjoyed teaching at Montgomery High and worked as supervisor for the 1980 US Census. Patricia made Saint Augustine in Florida her home since 1995, where she left her mark as the Guiding Light and Chairperson of Bronz-Glow Technologies, Inc.

Patricia had a magnificent spirit and spending time with her always made you feel special. She was a people person and everyone who met her and was lucky enough to spend time with her was inspired by her vibrant faith, her bright smile and vivacious personality. She was an inspiration in so many ways to all.

She loved to see new sites and meet new people and was fortunate enough to be able to travel to almost all 50 states including Alaska and Hawaii as well as Bermuda, Aruba, Curacao, St. Lucia, Puerto Rico, Mexico, London, Paris, Holland, Belgium and Spain.

Active in the Catholic Church, she was a member of the Catholic Daughters of America and had held the office of President of the Columbiettes. She embroidered unique and beautiful baptismal robes which she donated to the church. Patricia enjoyed sharing the story of Jesus and appeared as Martha in The Passion Play in St. Augustine, FL. She also enjoyed teaching and preparing children for their First Holy Communion which she did for many years both in New Jersey and Florida. Patricia was involved in the North Florida MS Society and spent many years volunteering for numerous events. The highlight being the MS Bike Ride where she awarded medals at the finish line.

The youngest daughter of June and George Walker, she was predeceased by her four sisters as well as both of her husbands, John J. Jacobs, Jr. and Robert Haydu.

Patricia's memory is cherished and her amazing personality will forever be in the hearts of her four children (and spouses): Darlene A. (Robert) Gill of Palm Coast, FL; Linda L. (Mike) Bielamowicz of Jacksonville, FL; John G. Jacobs of St. Augustine, FL; and David G. Jacobs of St. Augustine, FL and five grandchildren, whom she loved very much: Julia, Patricia and Nicole Bielamowicz; and Jennifer and John Jacobs Jr.

Mass of Christian Burial will be held at her childhood Church of St. Alphonsus in Hopewell, NJ on Friday, January 24, 2014, at Noon, preceded by visitation beginning at 10am at the Church and then she will be laid to rest at St. Bernard Cemetery in Bridgewater, NJ. A memorial and celebration of her life will be held in her honor at St. Anastasia Catholic Church in Florida at a time and date to be announced. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Patricia A. Jacobs-Haydu Memorial Fund, 223 Marshside Drive St. Augustine, FL 32080. These funds will be used to make donations in Patricia's name to various charities concerning the multiple ailments Patricia endured with grace and courage.
