Ruth L. Jacobson was granted her angel wings on Oct. 11, 2016, at home surrounded by loving family.

Ruth was born Nov. 5, 1921, in Wheelock, N.D., to Carl and Margaret Melland. Ruth had eight siblings.

She married the love of her lifetime Wilbert L. Jacobson in 1940 and together they raised five children: Janet (Harland Kostek), Karen (Ron Zustiak), Peggy (Daryl Greenhalgh), Greg Jacobson (Kathy) and Vickie (John McCreless). Ruth was blessed with 22 grandchildren, 40 great-grandchildren and 17 great-great-grandchildren.

Ruth was a cosmetologist for many years. She taught at the Lynnwood Beauty School before owning shops in Arlington, Wash., and on Whidbey Island. She had a love for basketball and baseball and spent countless hour watching the horse arena full of kids and horses. Ruth loved to travel in the car: long trips, short trips and, her favorite, trips to get ice cream.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to Whidbey Health Hospice Care. Family and friends are encouraged to share memories and condolences at www.whidbeymemorial.com
