Nancy Hanna Lynd Jacobs

Nancy Jacobs passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 at her home in Eagle. She was surrounded by what was most important to her, her family. Her husband, Bill, was by her side, as well as her children, their spouses, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Nancy died from a sudden illness. Her family had time to be with her, to hear her wishes, and she gently and courageously guided them through her final days. We are all grateful to her and for having her in our lives.

Nancy was born in Tulsa and raised in Bartlesville, OK. While attending the University of Oklahoma, she met and married Bill Jacobs. The couple recently celebrated 61 years of marriage. During their marriage they lived all over the world while Bill served in the U.S. Army and worked for Honeywell.

Color filled Nancy's life from her garden with homegrown flowers, to decorating, which she loved. "Adventure" should have been her middle name, representing how active and creative her mind and spirit were—always seeking more, always a lifetime learner.

She was active with the Boise Art Museum, the Velma V. Morrison Center for the Performing Arts, her bridge club, Pi Beta Phi sorority, the Eagle Senior Center, Eagle United Methodist Church, and her Grandma Group.

She had a keen interest in her entire family's genealogy, and took great pleasure in following her children's, grandchildren's, and her great-grandchildren's activities. Nancy had a wonderful circle of friends all over the world.

Nancy is survived by her husband, Bill; son, Clark and wife, Helenita (Seattle, WA); daughter, Lynda (Tulsa, OK); son, Jim and wife, Kate (Riverside, CA); and son, Bill and wife, Kristen (Eagle, ID); nine grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and their dog, Stewart.

Heaven just got an upgrade!

A celebration of Nancy's life will be held at 5pm on Saturday, December 15th, at Eagle United Methodist Church, 651 N. Eagle Road, Eagle, ID 83616.

The family has designated Eagle United Methodist Church or the Boise Alzheimer's Association (6126 W State Street, Suite 305, Boise, ID 83703) for memorial contributions.
