Vicky Lemus / Jacobs/Cirkelis
I recognized the photo of my aunt Vicky (Victoria) in this website. I grew up with my aunt Vicky and her mother (our grandmother-Francisca Lemus) in San Francisco, CA. (1950-1970's). We all were born in Santa Ana, El Salvador and immigrated to San Francisco, CA. during the late 40's and early 50's. Your Mom came to join her other sister, Trini and Merci during mid-1940's to work in shipyards during WW II. When your Mom married your Dad they moved to a farm near Rockford, Minnesota. I used to write the address envelopes for my grandmother who would write to your Mom, Vicky Jacobs in Rockford, MN. in a farm. Our grandmother had a difficult time spelling it. I remember seeing pictures of your father in GI uniform, your Mom, Vicky and my cousin (your older 1/2-sister) is named Myrna, with some farm animals and chickens in a farm near Rockford, Minnesota. Myrna (Bicknell) your older 1/2 sister now lives with her husband near Kingman, AZ. and has several photos of your Mom Vicky at the farm and other family members, I have other photos of your Mom also. Your other younger 1/2 sister is named Julie Cirkelis (Locke) I believe she lives in Myrtle Beach, So. Carolina. I was around 15 when your Mom divorced your Dad in Minnesota and left you with your Dad and grandparents. I was frequently in touch with our grandmother (Francisca) and would see Vicky on occasion in San Francisco until her death in 1975 due to a pedestrian-car accident. I always wondered where you "Tommy Jacobs" in MN was all these decades? You also had another younger 1/2 brother named Johnny (Jacobs) Putzsbach? who passed away due to Dementia and other complications during the 80;s. Myrna and I were there for the scattering of his ashes off the coast of San Francisco. Our Grandmother died in October 1989 and is buried in small cemetery at Empire (near Modesto, CA). Your Mom is buried in an unmarked grave at Holy Cross Cemetery, Colma, CA. just south of San Francisco. I believe she is buried in a commom grave with just a number which I don't have (My wife and I went looking for it many years ago) and saw it. The number can be found in the Cemetery Main Office Registry. Vicky had 5 other sister in San Francisco. All our aunts, but two have passed on: The ones still alive are: Natalie (95 yrs.) still lives with her son (Rudy) in San Francisco which we see them at Christmas and other days. Janny Isisa (80's) lives in Henderson, NV. and don't hear from her. You still have other 1st cousins living in San Francisco Bay Area: Rudy , Dorothy, Carol, and Liz, and myself, Hugo. I still live here 50 miles north of San Francisco.

Stopped by Elmwood this morning and took some pictures. I posted pictures for Lucille M. Jacobs, William Jacobs, Ethel G. Jacobs, Ethel M. Jacobs,and Marion Fowler Jacobs. They were all buried together besides the grave of Alberta Jacobs.

If you would like, I will gladly transfer these memorials to you!

RE: Alberta Jacobs
There is a large burial plot right next to the grave of Alberta Jacobs with several Jacobs buried there. I would imagine they are all relatives of one another.
