Delores Jacobs

Delores was born June 19, 1936, in Alden, the daughter of Edward and Bertha (Jordan) Jacobs. She was a lifelong member of Alden Methodist Church and a volunteer at Senior Dining. Delores was a caregiver for the young and the old. She never got her driver’s license, but was very mobile, riding her bike around town and going places with family and friends.

Delores was proud to have helped build the altar and pulpit with her dad that is now located at St. John’s Lutheran Community in its chapel.
