Carol Jean Jacobson was peacefully taken to eternal life at Waukesha Memorial Hospital on Saturday, January 5, 2019, following a progressive illness surrounded by her immediate family. Carol was born in Beloit to Ervan and Agnes Chester.

She is survived by her beloved husband, Robert Jacobson, of 52 years. She was the loving mother of Karl (Stavroula) Jacobson of St. Petersburg, Fl., Kristin (Bill) Collins of Waukesha and Kent (Chad) Jacobson of Sacramento, Calif. She was the proud grandmother of four grandsons, Jacob and Darren Collins and Elias and Evan Jacobson. She is further survived by her faithful companion, fur baby Zoie, as well as her brother Edward (Helen) Chester of Mequon, and loyal lifelong friend Tanis Koons.

Her many endeavors were: working at her family’s department store in Beloit, serving as a flight attendant for various airlines, food service manager of a major corporation, produce co-op founder and director, Cub Scout den mother, coordinating and serving as senior nutrition site manager. She also was very passionate and involved in making and jurying for many art and craft shows, as well as, an admiration for gemstones and jewelry which she also sold at shows. Carol had many passions but her first and foremost role was being a devoted wife, mother and grandmother to her family. She had a love for the water, traveling, reading and cooking, as well as for gemstones and natural stones and their history and origins.

Carol was very fond of celebrating the holidays. Christmas was one of her most special times of the year as she was well known to be a giver and made it such a special holiday for both family and friends. Her gifts were meticulously wrapped in the finest paper and beautiful handmade bows placed on every package. She loved sparkle, glitter and glitz in both her appearance and the lovely celebrations that she orchestrated.

Carol had a zest for life that attracted many to her. She was generous and kind and had a wonderful ability to listen to others. She always put others first before herself. She had a grace and etiquette that was reflected in everything she did. Her love and laughter were immense. She will be missed and remembered on a grand scale.

A memorial gathering and life celebration will be held at Krause Funeral Home, 21600 West Capitol Drive, Brookfield, WI 53072, on Saturday, January 12th, 2018. Visitation will be held from 1:30 PM – 2:45 PM, with a service at 3:00 PM.
