Helen (Tebsherany) Jacobs

July 14, 1922 — December 22, 2019

New Hartford

Mrs. Helen Jacobs, 97, of New Hartford, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, December 22, 2019. The good Lord granted her most fervent wish and prayer to complete her life here on earth in her own home.

She was born in Utica on July 14, 1922, the daughter of the late Joseph and Sarah (Trad) Tebsherany. She married John Jacobs on October 12, 1941 in St. George Orthodox Church, her beloved husband of 73 years, until his passing in 2015. Together they built their dream home “on the hill” in New Hartford where they raised four sons and remained content and happy for the rest of their lives.

Helen was the life of the party. She would often joke and say: when I go, tell everyone: “she just got tired and died”. She was beautiful, hardworking, and a renowned cook of Lebanese cuisine. She loved to sing and was very active in her church. A very passionate and dedicated woman in everything she did especially with her husband, four sons, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Predeceased by her husband, John, she is survived by her four sons and daughters in law: Lloyd and Chris Jacobs; John and Victoria Jacobs; Robert and Elizabeth Jacobs; Perry and Laura Jacobs; many loving grandchildren and great grandchildren; her brother Comille and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend Helen’s funeral service on Monday, December 30, 2019 at 11:30 AM at St. George Orthodox Church, 350 Higby Road, New Hartford. Visitation will precede the funeral service from 10:00 am to 11:15 am in church.
