Obituaries: Tommy Jacobs

Tommy Michael Jacobs, 59, of Bloomfield, Iowa went to be with his Lord on January 2, 2017. He was born June 1, 1957 in Bloomfield, Iowa to Don and Darlene Jacobs. He had several jobs during and after graduating from Davis County High School in 1975. However, he found his calling while working as an in-home aide for the elderly. He attended Indian Hills Community College and became an LPN. Tommy worked at the Bloomfield Care Center and for ResCare before sustaining an injury that cut his career short.

Unlike many in the nursing profession, Tom’s nurse found him to be a model patient, brave and never complaining. He suffered with cancer for several years and fought a brave fight. He was a loving and giving person, who will be greatly missed. Tommy enjoyed growing flowers, cooking, wildlife, rocks and birds of all kind.

He is survived by his parents, Don and Darlene Jacobs of Bloomfield, Iowa; two sisters, Dianne Stein of Marionville, Missouri, and Maggie Arnold of Bloomfield, Iowa; a brother, Chris Jacobs of Bloomfield, Iowa; three nephews, one niece, three great-nieces, and three great-nephews.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents; brother, David Wayne Jacobs and brother, Donald James Jacobs.

Memorial services will be at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 7, 2017 at the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Bloomfield with Pastor Tom Shipley officiating. A memorial has been established to Hospice of Davis and Wapello Counties and the Tabernacle Baptist Church. Online condolences may be directed to
