Arlene M. Jacobson

August 5, 1937 — December 29, 2023

Humboldt

 

Arlene M. Jacobson, 86, of Humboldt, passed away unexpectedly at her home on Friday morning, December 29, 2023.

Arlene Mary Jacobson was born August 5, 1937, the eldest of three daughters of Gordon and Louise (Leitl) Larson of Bode.  She graduated from Bode High School in 1955.  On November 3, 1956 she married Jim Jacobson.   Together Jim and Arlene spent their life together working on the farm and raising four children Michael, Teresa, Kelly and Joe. 

Arlene was very active.  When she was done with field work, she enjoyed clerking sales for Hundertmark Auction, she valued education and was on the school board at Twin Rivers.  She also managed a beautiful flower garden and a huge vegetable garden for most of her life.  In her spare time Arlene enjoyed playing bridge with her friends, visiting with family, and playing the piano and organ. 

In 1999, Jim and Arlene stepped back from the hectic farm life and moved to Humboldt.  Although she remained engaged in the farming operation, she had more time to devote to friends, family, and bridge. The town welcomed both and she was able to play in several clubs, as well as play the organ for Ullensvang Lutheran Church in Thor.

Arlene is survived by husband Jim, sons Mike (Ramona) Jacobson and Joe (Trish) Jacobson and daughters Teresa Jacobson and Kelly (George ) Streit, grandchildren Jenni (Dustin) Pierce, Marc Jacobson, Megan (Luke) Watson and Ben (Karlee) Jacobson, Rachel and Logan Lursen, Christina (Daniel) Foth, Amber (Garrett) Elbert, Spencer Streit, Ellie and Trevor Jacobson, sisters Marlys Larson and Diane Redenius and 9 great grandchildren.
