Rebecca Ann (Schultz) Jacob was born on February 20, 1959, in Marshall, to Leopold and Elaine (Bump) Schultz. She grew up in Marshall and graduated from Marshall High School in 1977. On May 27, 1978, she was united in marriage to Larry Jacob at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church. Becky worked at Schwan’s, Shopko and Gesme Printing. She loved her pets including her favorites, Sydney their Yorkshire Terrier and their cat Arthur. She was an avid walker and you could count on seeing her daily around town. Becky was most passionate about family, especially her nieces and nephews. They meant a lot to her and the feelings were mutual. She was a kind and generous aunt and never forgot to send gifts and cards for birthdays, holidays and special events. You could always count on a special surprise in her cards. She was also a very kind and doting daughter. She graciously tended to her mother, being one of her main care givers. Becky talked to her daily and Becky and Larry stopped over often, supplying her with books and crossword puzzles.
