Eva Magalene "Maggie" Dye Jacobs
Birth: Apr. 24, 1915
Cherokee County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Nov. 18, 2012
Gaston County
North Carolina, USA

* Daughter of Katherine (Magness) & William Gordon Dye.

* Married Andrew Paul Jacobs (Jakubec) on August 4, 1948 in St. Michael's Catholic Church in Gastonia, North Carolina after he got back from WWII.
>> Interesting fact: He got married under "Jakubec" instead of Jacobs. I don't when he changed his name but it had to be sometime between August 1948 and Sept. 1949 (because their daughter was born Sept. 7, 1949).
Witnesses at their wedding: her sister, Cora and brother-in-law, Irvin McCorkle.

* Mother of 5 children

Well Maggie, you're dancing in Heaven right now and it must be quite nice.
You've said for a long time you can't wait to go Home and now you're there.
Can't wait to 'see' you again.
