Barbara Louise Jacob Bohl, of Los Alamos, New Mexico, passed away November 18, 1986, in The University of New Mexico Cancer Clinic, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She was born October 24, 1934, in Corpus Christi, Texas. She was the daughter of the late Louise Bible Jacob and William Wallace Jacob.

Mrs. Bohl was a prominent Los Alamos Realtor; the 1986 Los Alamos Realtor of the Year; the 1987 Honorary President of the Los Alamos Board of Realtors. She was a member of the Summit Garden Club, and for years provided flowers for the United Church altar.

Mrs. Bohl is survived by her husband, Richard Jacob Bohl, Sr.; three children: Richard Jacob Bohl, Jr.; Dehn Louise Bohl; Alexander Wallace Bohl; all of Los Alamos, New Mexico; one brother, Jim Jacob of Corpus Christi, Texas. Also surviving are three aunts: Jimmy Fritz, Violet Jacob, and Luella Talk (the aunts of Valley Mills, Texas, area); as well as many other family members and friends.

Arrangements were made by McGee Funeral Home of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Funeral services were held at the Los Alamos United Church at 11:00 a.m., Thursday, November 20, 1986, with Rev. Robert Buck of Golden, Colorado; Rev. George Easley and Rev. Steven Mabry of the Los Alamos United Church officiating. Interment followed in the Los Alamos Guaje Pines Cemetery. A memorial service was held 1:00 p.m. Saturday, November 22, 1986, in the First Methodist Church in Valley Mills, Texas.

In lieu of flowers, the family requested contributions be made to the Barbara Bohl Memorial Fund (for cancer research) at the Los Alamos National Bank, Los Alamos, New Mexico 87544.



Barbara was born on October 24, 1934, in Corpus Christi, Texas. In life she was vibrant and caring, a loving wife of 30 years for Richard Jacob (Dick) Bohl, and a caring mother for her three children: Richard Jacob (Jake) Bohl, Dehn Louise Bohl, and Alexander Wallace (Alex) Bohl. In work and recreation she was a faithful friend, one who seemed always to have the needs of others as her primary interest.

As Barbara died in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on the morning of November 18, 1986, she was surrounded and held by her family and friends. Barbara's death marked the end of a long struggle with cancer in which she showed us how to live with courage and how to die with grace. To say that she will be missed is a glaring understatement. But, then, all of us are grateful that her struggle is over and that she is finally at peace.
