Gwenda Jacobs

December 1, 1932 — June 17, 2019

It has pleased almighty God, in accordance with His merciful and divine providence, on the afternoon of Monday, June 17, 2019 to summon to Himself out of this vale of tears the soul of Gwenda Marie Lee Jacobs.

Gwen was born December 1, 1932 in East Rochester, New York to Herman Dillman and Doris Mowry Lee. She was baptized in June 1940 at St. Mark Lutheran Church in Mendon, New York. Gwen was confirmed in the Christian Faith in June 1945 at St. Mark Lutheran Church in Mendon, New York. On June 9, 1956 she was united in Holy Matrimony with Richard Jacobs at St. John Lutheran Church in Hamlin, New York.

A faithful member of Grace Lutheran Church, Gwen served her Lord as a member of the Afternoon LWML. She was faithful in her hearing of God’s Word and reception of the Sacrament. By means of God’s grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we know that Gwen now enjoys the peace and joy of eternal life in heaven.
