Judith (Jellison) Jacobs went home with God on Sunday, November 17, 2019. She was born October 11, 1940 and graduated from Moon Township High School. She lived in the Coraopolis area. Judy was a devout Catholic, Christian Mother and member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Coraopolis, PA. She fell in love with Willard McCormick Jacobs and married in 1961. They had four children, Sandra (Pat) Scott of Coraopolis, Deb (Donald J.) Dinello of Hershey, PA., Judy (Eddie) Napoleone of Moon Township, PA. and Willard (Lisa) Jacobs of Moon Township, PA. The greatest joy of her life were her grandchildren, Ryan (Lauren) McDaniel, Adam (Lauren) McDaniel, Vincent Napoleone, Anthony Napoleone, Joey Napoleon, Bracy (Caitlin) Scott, Taylor (Ian) Dinello Whelan, Olivia Napoleone, Tess Dinello, Haley Jacobs, Tayrn Dinello, Cam Jacobs and Hannah Jacobs. Great-grandchildren are Boe Scott and Elena McDaniel. Judy's second set of children were her nieces and nephews, Linda Nickles Lach, Michele Nickles Simon, Joe Nickles and Keith Nickles. In addition she is survived by Joseph Nickles, Esther Jacobs, Maryanne Jacobs Campbell, Florence Jacobs Brown, Janet Jacobs Zoladz and David (Patti) Jacobs.
Judy loved her family and all of the Pittsburgh sports teams. Judy was one of the Babushka Brigades' finest. She was rarely beat at Yahtzee or Scrabble and if there was a Pinochle or Bingo game going on, that is where you would find her. She was blessed to have lived at the Coraopolis Towers for 14 years. While there, she served on their board and was blessed with many friends that kept her laughing and looking to the next day. Judy was preceded in death by her husband, Willard McCormick Jacobs; parents, Rudy and Ruth Jellison; and best friend and sister, Ruth Marie Jellison Nickles.
Family and friends will be welcomed on Wednesday from 1pm - 9pm in the Sanvito Funeral Home, 1316 4th Ave., Coraopolis, PA. A prayer service will take place on Thursday morning at 9:30am in the funeral home followed by a Mass of Christian Burial, 10 am at St. Joseph Church, Coraopolis. Interment to follow in Resurrection Cemetery, Moon Township.
