Obituary for Winifred M. Jacobs

Our beloved mother, aunt, and friend entered her heavenly home on April 17, 2016. On September 5, 1918 she was born premature. To keep her warm, her parents would place her in a shoebox and set her on the cookstove door. She was a graduate of St. Johns High School (1938), Chicago Evangelistic Institute (1940), attended Lansing Community College, and received her Bachelor's Degree from Michigan State University (1970) followed by a Master’s Degree. Winifred was a teacher at Neff Elementary School in Grand Ledge. She was a member of the Grand Ledge First United Methodist Church where over many years she taught Sunday School, directed the children's choir, sang in the senior choir, and was a member of the UMW. She was also a Steven's Minister and served on many committees in the church.

Winifred will be greatly missed by her daughters Judith Kaye Jacobs and Janet Sue Jacobs both of Grand Ledge, along with many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband of 25 years, Rev. Harold Jacobs, brother Willard (Irma) Irwin and sister Wilna (Peter) Oppenhuisen.

Please join the family as we celebrate her life at 11:00 on Thursday, April 21, 2016 at the Grand Ledge First United Methodist Church. Pastor Cynthia Skutar and Pastor Betty Smith will officiate. The family will receive friends Wednesday 2-4 and 6-8 at Peters & Murray Funeral Home in Grand Ledge. Memorial contributions may be made to the Grand Ledge F.U.M.C. or Hospice of Lansing.
