Lisa M. Jacobs, 49, Hannibal, Mo., passed away at 12:49 p.m., Monday, April 4, 2022, at her home in Hannibal.
Lisa was born July 11, 1972, in Rock Island, Ill., to Robert John Meiron Sr. and Rosemary Fulgenzi Meiron Rupp. She was married to Jody Jacobs on March 11, 2006, in Hannibal. He survives.
Other survivors include her stepfather, Tom Rupp (Suzanne), Hannibal; two brothers, Robert John “Bobby” Meiron, Hannibal; and Tom Meiron (Sara), Florida; sister-in-law, Julie Angel (James); brother-in-law, John Jacobs (Carmen); her puppy boy, Cobalt, of the home; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and many friends.
Lisa was preceded in death by her parents.
Lisa was a graduate of Hannibal High School in 1991 and Hannibal-LaGrange University in 1996.
Beginning her career at Kroger in Hannibal, Lisa worked as a cashier for many years. When the store closed, she worked at Walmart as an associate and finally at General Mills before her retirement. Lisa enjoyed her career and truly loved her work.
Hardworking, caring and kind, Lisa found great joy in pleasing others and making sure they were taken care of. She especially enjoyed going to great trouble to plan surprises for her husband, Jody, for his birthdays each year.
A talented crafter, Lisa liked to create beautiful Christmas ornaments that she shared with her family and friends. She also had a deep love for her dog, Cobalt, who was definitely a momma’s dog!
Collecting monkey memorabilia, like her sock monkey collection, or catching up on her favorite vintage TV shows, like “Adam 12” or “The Andy Griffith Show,” were favorites for Lisa. Trips to Estes Park, riding the scenic Cumbres & Toltec railroad with Jody in New Mexico/Colorado or walks on the beach with her mother collecting shells were all moments that Lisa treasured.
Dining out was always a treat for Lisa, as was eating with the First Christian Church Sunday Lunch Group or simply checking out some of her and Jody’s favorites, like the Rebel Pig in Palmyra.
Most of all Lisa will be remembered for her big smile and love of life. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
Lisa was a member of the Pinky Pals Breast Cancer Support Group.
Lisa was Catholic by faith and a member of Holy Family Catholic Church.
