Obituary for Sharon Lynne Jacobs

Sharon L. Jacobs, age 82, of Howell, MI passed away surrounded virtually by her loving family on December 16, 2020. 

She was born in Detroit, MI on November 5, 1938, the daughter of Harvey and Clementine (Discher) Pobur.  Sharon graduated from Mercy High School in 1957 and in 1959 from Mercy Nursing School as a Licensed Practical Nurse.  Sharon met, fell in love with, and married David Jacobs, an Army Staff Sergeant, in 1964. The couple moved to Howell in 1975, where they raised 4 children together. Sharon and David continued to live in their family home until his death in 2014. Sharon lived in her beloved home until her unexpected passing.
Sharon enjoyed books, keeping an extensive collection, and movies, and keeping up with all the latest celebrity news.  She also enjoyed spending time on her porch and welcoming visits from her family and friends.  Sharon especially loved spending time with her grandkids, engaging with them through joking, laughter, and sharing enormous love.  Sharon loved the small town feel of Howell and developed a large network of lifelong friends.

Sharon is survived by four children, Debbie (Tim) Colley of Howell, MI, Dawn (Daniel) Marcoux of Howell, MI, Dan (Lara) Jacobs of Galesburg, MI, and Allan (Lisa) Jacobs of Williamston, MI; 11 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren; as well as several nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her father, mother, brothers Ed and Allan Pobur, and her loving husband, David.
