June 19, 2018 – West Bend, WI – Frank N. Jacobs of West Bend found peace on Friday, June 15, 2018 at the age of 90. He was born on November 2, 1927 in Aurora, Illinois to Frank and Lena (nee Stoffel) Jacobs. On June 6, 1953, he was united in marriage to Shirley Ehlert and together raised their two sons, Peter and Chris.
Frank loved his family and enjoyed spending the summers with them in Boulder Junction, Wisconsin, chasing muskies and stocking the freezer with crappies. He taught music in West Bend for a majority of his 37 year career and was overjoyed whenever he bumped into his former students.
Those Frank leaves behind to cherish his memory include his two sons, Peter (Ann Hokanson) and Chris (Michelle); his eight grandchildren, Ben, Henry, Cecily, Nicholas, Brittney, Randy, Fallon, and Morgan; his sister Carole and brother Bernie; long time friend, Cheri Mossman; and other nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his beautiful wife, Shirley; sisters, Jean and Delores; and brothers, Bob and Bill.
Frank’s family would like to offer their thanks to the nurses and staff at The Kathy Hospice of the Town of Polk for their love and care of their father and friend as well as the tremendous staff of Cedar Bay West. He will be missed by all those whose lives he’s touched.
Donations in Frank’s name would be appreciated to The Kathy Hospice.
The Myrhum Patten Miller &Kietzer Funeral Homes have been entrusted with Frank’s arrangements.
