February 4, 1934 – December 6, 2019
LaMoyne “Lee” Dorothy Jacobs was born on February 4, 1934 and passed away on December 6, 2019. Lee is preceded in death by her husband, Donald L. Jacobs; parents: George and Zita Lavey; brother, Emmett W. Lavey and son, Steven L. Jacobs.
Lee is survived by her daughter, Michele M. Jacobs; daughter-in-law, Tennie Jacobs; grandchildren: Nicholas Jacobs, Matthew Jacobs, Amy Jacobs; great grandchild, Brooke Jacobs; brother, Thomas G. Lavey; sister-in-law Rose Helen Deuel and numerous nieces and nephews.
Lee was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was a cherished friend to many throughout the years, maintaining decades long friendships that withstood many miles and many moves. She loved her family and friends fiercely and loyally. They spent many, many late nights playing cards, gossiping and laughing.
In the last few decades she was able to travel to new places and always made friends wherever she went. Even as her health failed she still loved to see new places and taught her grandson it was just as much fun to "hike" from the seat of a car as it was on a trail.
She was funny and fun and smart and had a great sense of adventure. She laughed easily and was the person who could make her daughter laugh harder than anyone else even if it meant almost driving off the side of Mt. Haleakala.
She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

Lee was a wonderful and supportive friend. She was also a very classy lady who had a great sense of style.
We spent many happy hours playing hand and foot, Mexican Train or just drinking coffee and talking.
She amazed me, that , in spite of her many health problems, she just kept going and always had a smile.
She was a gracious hostess who loved to entertain in her lovely home.
She will be missed. However, as sad as it is to lose a friend or loved one, I'm glad she no longer has to suffer. Her tiny little body had suffered the pain and indignity of illness far longer than anyone should have to.
My sincerest condolences and love goes to her family.
