Elizabeth Anne Jacobs passed away peacefully in her sleep on 1 November at the age of 90. She was born in Harrisburg PA, grew up in Forest Hills New York, and graduated from Vassar College. Together with her husband Alan Jacobs, she lived and raised four children in Great Falls Virginia before moving to Fairfax where she worked for a local law firm. She gardened with passion and was active at Truro Anglican church where she arranged flowers for many years.

 She is survived by her four children, Martha St. Clair Jacobs of Haymarket VA, John Alan Jacobs of Annapolis MD, Catherine Anne Oster of Philadelphia PA and Elisabeth Doran Jacobs of Seattle WA, as well as her grandchildren Abigail Elizabeth Park, Sarah Anne Park, and John Jacobs. 

 She will be missed by her family, the members of her book club and her church community. Everyone who ever met her will miss her cooking.

 Her memorial service will be Saturday, 21 November at 2 pm at Truro Anglican Church in Fairfax. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to So Others Might Eat (web@some.org)
