She loved music and sang in the church choir her entire life. Nancy served as the choir librarian and secretary and was a member of the Ladies Trio. Nancy was a talented seamstress and spent hours making beautiful clothes for herself and others. She also cross-stitched intricate pictures that she framed and gave to loved ones as gifts.

Nancy was preceded in death by her husband, Curtis Jacobs; her parents; two brothers, Gordon Reid and Kenneth Reid and three sisters, Lucille Austin, Bernice Shields and Marion Williams. She is survived by her daughters, Karen Jacobs Routten and son-in-law, Lennie Routten and Cheryl Jacobs Park and son-in-law, Aaron Park; grandsons, Hunter Routten and his wife, Julianne and Chase Routten and his wife, Caitlin and granddaughter, Rachel Park.
