Marian K. Jacobs Obituary
Jacobs, Marian K.
Marian K. Jacobs, wife of the late Donald A. Jacobs, passed away on December 30, 2017. She was the daughter of the late Charles and Margaret (Bittner) Kroger. She was born on March 18, 1928 in Hartford and raised in Hamden, graduating from Hamden High School in 1945. She married Don in 1948 and raised their family in North Guilford, spending many summers at Mulberry Point. In 1972 they moved to Stony Creek, enjoying the charm of the Thimble Islands. After Don passed away in 1996, she returned to live in Guilford.
For many years Marian was the secretary at Melissa Jones School, where she helped generations of North Guilford children through their elementary school years. She was an active member of St. John's Church, helping in many capacities, including fifty years in the choir and altar guild. After her retirement she increased her volunteer activities to include Dudley Farm, the Hole in the Wall thrift shop and St. Luke's soup kitchen.
She is survived by her three children, Donald A. Jacobs and his wife, Joan; Judy Weisiger and her husband, Cary; and Bradford C. Jacobs and his wife, Karin; as well as grandchildren Gregory, Kristina, and Martha and great-grandchildren Camden and Hadley.
A celebration of her life will take place at St. John's Episcopal church at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 13. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. John's Episcopal Church, 129 Ledge Hill Rd., North Guilford, CT 06437. The family wishes to give thanks to her caregiver and our angel, Maria.
