Dolores M. Jacobs (nee Beyerl) September 16, 1924-June 2, 2020.

Dolores was called to her heavenly home on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, at the age of 95. She was a woman of strong faith that never wavered throughout her life. She was always committed to her family and will be missed tremendously. Her unqualified love, emotional support, kindness, and generosity served as an example for all who knew her. Our beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, and Sister will be forever missed but always in our hearts.

Dolores was born September 16, 1924, in Colby Wisconsin to the late Ambrose Beyerl and the late Eva Beyerl (nee Frane). She married the love of her life, the late Martin Jacobs, on September 2, 1947, in Alhambra California. She resided in Marshfield for more than 65 years, and in addition to raising her family, she was an active member of numerous groups at Our Lady of Peace Church and she participated in the Serra Club.
