Jacob, Margaret T.* - Mountain Top  
MOUNTAIN TOP — Margaret T. Jacob, 100, of Mountain Top , went home to the Lord peacefully on June 15, 2016, surrounded by her loving family. Born in Brooklyn, New York, on Nov. 29, 1915, to Charles and Margaret (Keane) O'Connor, who came from Ireland, met and fell in love. Marge was very proud of her Irish heritage. She graduated from St. Mary's Commercial School in Brooklyn, New York. Marge married the love of her life, Frank D. Jacob, and together they lived a love story that lasted 65 and a half years until Frank's passing on Dec. 6, 2005 . Marge was an executive for many years until her children were born. Marge raised her family in Levittown, where she and Frank were forming members of St. Michael The Archangel Catholic Church where they spent many hours on church committees, bazaars, Sodality and bowling leagues. In 1966, Frank's work took them to Sparta, Wisconsin, until 1968 when they settled in Mountain Top. Marge entered the workforce again in 1968 as an executive secretary at RCA until her retirement. In 1979, Marge became a "snowbird" in Florida, where she and Frank again made many wonderful friends and became active in the Elks and Lady Moose, where Marge held an office. In 1990, they returned to Mountain Top permanently to be near their children and grandchildren. Marge enjoyed many summers at the beach with Frank and later her children and grandchildren until 2012. Marge spent the last seven years as a guest of Smith Health Care in the Assisted Living where she had an active social life, always ready for a game of cards, bingo, church services and entertainment. She formed many new friendships there. Preceding her in death, in addition to her husband, Frank, are her brothers, Charles, Edward, John and Thomas and grandson, Joseph M. Jacob Jr. Marge is survived by her loving children, Patricia Knight and husband, Robert, of Mountain Top, Dennis F. Jacob, of Wilkes-Barre, Joseph M. Jacob Sr., of Mountain Top, and Barry F. Jacob and wife Deborah, of Mountain Top. Marge was "Nan" to her nine grandchildren and "Margie" to her 17 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. Funeral services were private. Arrangements were entrusted to McCune Funeral Home, Mountain Top . Donations may be made in Marge's memory to Celtic Hospice Care or St. Jude's Building Fund, Mountain Top. We are grateful to have been blest with the love of our wonderful mother and grandmother for so many years. "Death leaves a heartache no one can heal… Love leaves a memory no one can steal."
