Marsha graduated from McGregor High School in 1962. In 1963, she married Dennis Miller and to this union two children, Lisa and Kevin, were born. They were later divorced. For a time Marsha worked as a cook at the grade school in Hanlontown, Iowa, and later worked with the handicapped in Forest City.

On May 29, 1999, she married Arnold L. (AJ) Jacobson at Lunder Lutheran Church and they made their home in Albert Lea.

She enjoyed dancing, her flower garden, playing darts, dice and cards, and collecting dolls and Precious Moments items.

Her travels included trips to Beach, North Dakota, and Glendive, Montana, to see daughter, Lisa, and her family. Her feline friends were constant companions for her.

She will be greatly missed by her husband, AJ; children Lisa Miller of Glendive and Kevin Miller of Walford, Iowa; stepchildren Lynn (Stacie) Jacobson and LeAnn (Fabian) Talamantes, all of Albert Lea; grandchildren Jennifer and Laura Lund, Chelsea, Ashley, Madison, MaKena and BreAnn Jacobson and Noah Talamanates; sister, Marilyn Loper, of Monona, Iowa; sister-in-law, Carol (Layne) Davis, of Albert Lea; and several nieces and nephews.

Marsha was preceded in death by her parents; her mother-in-law, Doris Jacobson; and brother-in-law, Morgan “Bubs” Loper.

Blessed be her memory.
