With great sadness, the family of Joan Jacobs, 92, announces her passing. To know her was to love her, both for family and friends. And the sweetness of her memory, time can neither dim nor end.

A Brooklyn native, Joan lived in the Syracuse area for most of her life. She is remembered for her captivating smile, cheerful humor, keen sense of style and kindness she extended to others. Joan was first to make a meal or offer rides for those in need, and never missed an occasion important to loved ones.

Joan was a graduate of Syracuse University School of Journalism and was a member of Phi Sigma Sigma. She cheered for all Syracuse sports and was a lifelong fan. Joan was a member of Hadassah and Temple Adath Yeshurun. She was active in many charitable organizations and was a member of Brockway Farms Garden Club. Her passion for nature led her to become an active bird watcher. She enjoyed playing and watching tennis. She was a former member of the Cavalry Golf Club.

Joan’s greatest joy came from loving, hosting and caring for family and friends.

Dear Joan's Family, Your mom was a very special lady to me and I am so sorry that I could not attend the service. We are short staffed at work so it was not possible for me to leave today. When I first started driving for her, I was recently divorced. She was such a good listener and I appreciated the wisdom she offered. We formed a bond and shopping and outings reminded me of spending time with my own grandmother before she passed. Your mom was always, generous, kind and thoughtful to me. She remembered birthdays and special occasions and always had a card or a gift for each and every occasion. We enjoyed each other's company and I will miss her. I hope that you have happy memories to comfort you in the days to come. Phyllis Tucker
