January 1, 1921 – March 29, 2021
Karemy Domain Jacobs was born in Atlanta, Georgia 1 January 1921. She moved to Rome, Georgia in 1959 when she married John Ellis Jacobs who owned the Partridge Restaurant from 1933 until he passed in 1996. From that date Karemy ran the Partridge until 2010 when she retired. She taught 4-year-old Sunday School at First Presbyterian Church for over 40 years, teaching generations of children to love God the way she did.
Karemy was full of life and energy and never failed to greet her guests at the Partridge with a “hello, darling.” She gave the kids candy and genuinely loved virtually everyone who graced the restaurant. She also reached out to those less fortunate and fed the homeless population of Rome on such a regular basis that she knew them all by name and never failed to show them dignity when she fed them.
A fixture on Broad Street for over 50 years, Karemy’s smile and laugh were infectious. She lived her faith out everyday and loved her family with her whole heart.
Karemy Domain Jacobs is survived by her daughters, Angelle Jacobs Thornton and Keremy Jacobs McDonald, her sons-in-law Joel Thornton and Aaron McDonald and her five grandchildren, John Elias Jacobs Thornton, Aaron John McDonald, Angelle Jonna “Sister” Thornton, Ellianna Karemy “Elli” McDonald, and Noah Wayne McDonald.
Karemy will be buried in a private service. A memorial service will be held in the coming months.
A great light has gone from earth to heaven; she will be missed but never forgotten in the hearts of those who had the blessing to know her.
