Despite this loss, Art and Betty had a very close and happy marriage. They had three sons: Gary, Michael and Chris. In their leisure time, the family enjoyed hunting, fishing, boating, hiking, everything that living in the Pacific Northwest had to offer. They traveled extensively by RV and trailer to visit relatives and friends and to see the country. They enjoyed several trips to Europe, particularly to Denmark to visit Art’s relatives.

It was a wonderful experience growing up with the Jacobsen’s family. Experiences that a real family had like hunting, fishing, camping and that extends to my sons who miss Betty, who was like a grandmother to them. Our hearts and prayers are with you at this difficult time..God be with you always.

Very nice eulogy. What a wonderful lady. I always admired how beautiful she was, even when she went hunting. Those marvelous earrings and hair. Good memories of fun party’s with good food and fun games of Tripoley. But most of all I will always remember how in love she and Uncle Art were and how much she loved her family. I feel truly blessed to be a part of her life. Our thoughts and prayers are with you!

When I first met Betty she was 74 years old and still a firecracker. Great sense of humor, quick witted, kind, compassionate. Every dinner I had that she cooked included so many side dishes and always turned out perfect. She walked so fast I could hardly keep up with her. She always made me feel special and was the best mother in law a girl could hope for.

Gary, Chris, and Jacobsen family: We are sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. As you know, my mother! Shirley (Roe) Duryea has known Betty since growing up together in the Greenwood neighborhood. She asked me to pass along her condolences to all of you and hopes to see you in July at the celebration of your mom’s life.

Betty was Awesome! Always teasing me, laughing and joking around when I was a kid. I will always have great memories of time spent with her and uncle Art growing up. She was a Gem!

Even though miles separated us, Aunt Betty and Uncle Art had a special place in our hearts. They were kind, loving, and our times together were so very memorable.

Great-Aunt Betty was such a special lady! When I think of her I immediately picture her smile and that distinct sparkle in her eye. She was determined, classy and had such a wonderful sense of humor. Not only was she special, but she made you feel special when you were around her. When Karina was just 3 weeks old, Betty (Karina’s Great, Great, Aunt) and Art had us over for lunch. It was Karina’s first lunch date and it’s an honor that Betty was the one to host it. We all miss her dearly and will keep many special memories with Aunt Betty close to our hearts.

I have such fond memories of Aunt Betty. One stands out in my mind. I took my first ever airplane ride from Billings, MT to Seattle and spent time with her and Uncle Art. She delighted my teenage heart with hairdo’s, clothes shopping and lots of love. Joyfully celebrating her life, and mourning her passing.
