Norma J. (Hackbarth) Jacober, 75 of Columbia, Missouri, passed away August 6, 2018 at Ashland Healthcare Center. Norma was born February 15, 1943 in Iowa Falls, IA to Leona E. (Gorder) Hackbarth and Verlynn D. Hackbarth.

Norma is survived by her three sons, Todd C. (Susan) Jacober of Hartsburg, MO, Andrew D. (Connie) Jacober of Shawnee KS, and Darin F. (Adrienne) Jacober, of Columbia MO, her sisters Marlys Smith of Monona IA, Barbara (Richard) Thompson of Monona IA, Judy (David) Orth or Ankeny IA, sister-in-law Jeanne Hackbarth of Waterloo IA, and brother Randy Hackbarth of Cedar Falls IA. Norma was blessed with six grandchildren, Nathan, Isaac, Andrea, Connor, Oliver and Louis Jacober. She was preceded in death by her parents Leona (2006) and Verlynn (1993) Hackbarth, and her brother Verle (2000) Hackbarth.

She loved to spend time with her children and grandchildren. Norma was the epitome of selflessness. She always put others before herself and rarely complained about anything. In accordance to her wishes, there will not be a formal funeral service. A family life celebration will be held in Iowa Falls on August 25 in the Circle Point Shelter, Pine Lake State Park, Eldora IA.

It was Norma’s desire to provide something for the wonderful staff and Activities department of the Ashland Healthcare Retirement Home. In Lieu of flowers, a memorial site has been set up in honor of Norma. 100% of the funds will benefit the wonderful staff and residents of Ashland Healthcare Retirement Home.
