It is with great sadness that faculty and students of The Division of Nutrition, College of Health, University of Utah learned of Florence's passing. Florence and Ted were very generous donors to our student scholarship program. The Anna Jacobsen Scholarship that they established and the students that they helped and will in the future help through college lives on in their memory.

Celebrating the long-awaited reunion of Florence and Ted and two lives well-lived.

I will cherish the memories of their friendship forever.

A truly legendary millennial lady. She contributed much to preserve beauty and history throughout Utah and elsewhere. It was a privilege to have known her. Her memory will last forever. She was a friend to all our family.
Sincerely, Penny Merrill and Kelly Buehner

My heartfelt gratitude to Florence Jacobsen - a grand lady. I can't thank her enough for her efforts and influence in preserving church historical sites and artwork that are so precious to our Mormon culture. I did not know her personally but I heard her name many times as a excellent woman of influence and integrity.

Florence was a guide and inspiration to me over many years. Ever kind and caring, she always left me with an uplifted spirit. Her stories will live with me always. My daughter Sabrina often sang for her as she lay in bed. She expressed love for her and for me and gave us the belief that all would be well.
