Janette K. Jacobs, Clinton, WI (1968-2014)
January 5, 1968 - January 23, 2014
Janette K. Jacobs, age 46, of Clinton, died Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014, in her home surrounded by her family after an eight year battle with cancer. She was born Jan. 5, 1968, to Leo and Bonnie (Sweeney) Jacobs in Waterloo, IA. Janette was a 1985 graduate of North Boone High School, Poplar Grove, IL, and graduated from Blackhawk Technical College in 1992. She was a labor and delivery Nurse at Swedish American Hospital in Rockford, IL, for 25 years. She formed close and lasting friendships with her co-workers at Swedish American Hospital and was very proud of the many new and beautiful tiny bundles of joy that she saw come into the world over her 25 year career. She cherished the time spent with her children and the fun filled trips they took together. Be they near or far, the memories and photos will be forever cherished by them.
Janet is survived by her son, Jacob Laursen; and her daughter, Jenna Laursen, both of Clinton; her mother, Bonnie Kay Ehle of Princeton, WI; her brother, Brian (Sandi) Jacobs of Clinton, and their children: Doug, Kevin and Brad Hesebeck and Eric Jacobs; many cousins, nieces and nephews and her great nephew, Kasen. She was preceded in death by her father; her grandmother, Ella Sweeney; and grandparents, John and Johanna Jacobs.
The family would like to thank all the special individuals who did so many caring and loving things to make her life easier thru this long battle, especially, Genevieve, Rosa & Kim.
