Obituary for Beverly Lorraine Jacobson
Beverly Lorraine (Morneau) Jacobson April 12, 1935 – May 5, 2017
Beverly was born April 12, 1935 in Redwood City, Calif. to Ray and Irene Morneau. They moved to Grants Pass, Ore. in 1942 where Beverly grew up and attended Grants Pass High School. She married Oliver “Jake” Jacobson in 1960 at the First Baptist Church in Grants Pass. Oliver and Beverly moved to Selma in 1965 and then to Brookings in 1967. Beverly enjoyed music – from jazz to classical – she also liked to camp and cook outdoors. Her husband’s work as a logger would take him from home so she and the kids would pack up and go along. Beverly’s most favorite camp was near Bolen Lake and the Happy Camp area. She also enjoyed roller skating, scrabble, crafts, studying the solar system and decorating for different seasons. She had a passion for flowers which were abundant in every room in her home. Beverly was a private person; her family was her sunshine.
Survivors include her husband, Oliver of Brookings, sons, Christopher Jacobson, Byron Jacobson both of Brookings; daughter, Elaine Davis of Brookings; granddaughter, Christine Doe of Brookings and her sons, Ty and Cash, grandson Denny Davis, Jr. and his wife, Samantha, their daughter, Dani and twin boys, Mike and Sawyer of Brookings, grandson Michael Davis of Brookings, and numerous nieces and nephews. A special thank you to nephew Mike and his family and also to Linda, Donna for all their thoughtfulness.
Private graveside service for family only will be held at 10:00am on Sunday, May 14, 2017 at W J Ward Memorial Cemetery, 1035 7th St. in Brookings.
A Celebration of life is planned for a later date in the Fall. The family will provide information at that time.
