Catherine Edith Jacobson (Banks)

Age 85, born in Lynd, Minnesota on the family farm. She
passed away peacefully on June 8, 2020. Preceded in death by father, Charles,
mother Edith, step-mother Adina Banks, brother Myron Banks and loving husband
Les Jacobson. Survived by children Brad (Tamara) Jacobson, Mary Jacobson, Sally
(Mark) Peterson: grandchildren, Alex, Olivia, Nick, James, Nina, Charlie & Henry:
great granddaughter, Olivia.
Cathy was a graduate of Hamline University, receiving a Bachelor of Nursing Degree. She received part of her training at the old Ancker hospital in St.Paul, where she met her husband of 60 years. She worked as an RN at the VA hospital in Minneapolis.
After helping to put Les through medical school, she retired from nursing to raise her
family. She was a devoted mother and loving grandmother. Cathy always had coffee at the ready and a smile on her face. She kept the family home and finances
under control while tending to her many breath-taking flower beds and pots she
nurtured. She especially enjoyed flying with Les in their own aircraft (having obtained her ground school license) and extensive traveling with her husband Les
and their children. Cathy gave her time generously to many volunteer activities.
She was active in Mount Olivet Homes Auxiliary , Dorcas Society, Hennepin County
Medical Society Auxiliary, and Fairview Hospitals Auxiliary.
The family would like to thank the many aids, nurses, physicians, and hospice staff
involved in her care. (Especially those at The Waters of Eden Prairie). They were all
an endless source of support and wisdom.
Memorials preferred to Mount Olivet Lutheran Church and Alzheimer’s Association.
Private interment at Fort Snelling National Cemetery. Celebration of Life service at Mount Olivet Lutheran Church to be held at a later date.
