Beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, Ollie Jo (Hickman) Jacobson was born April 30, 1930 in Jarrell Texas to Eula Pearl (Cosper) Hickman and Roosevelt (R.V.) Hickman.  Ollie Jo attended school in Jarrell, Texas where she lived into her early twenties before moving to Rossville, Kansas. She was always a caring person who put others needs before her own, in fact she was a caregiver to many of her family.

A loving mother to her children and her entire family, when her children married, the spouses were not “in-laws’ they too became her children. She had become a beautician while in Kansas, owning a salon for many years before returning home to be closer to her family in Jarrell. For a time, she served as Hostess at the historic Stagecoach Inn.  Ollie Jo was described by all as a “hard worker” her entire life and actually continued as a hairdresser into her early eighties.

After returning to Texas, she became very active in the community. Ollie Jo became a Sunday School teacher, and often a chaperone for her youngest son’s church group outings. She loved music, dancing and reading especially westerns. Friends and family note that she had a beautiful voice. While she loved music of all genres, she particularly loved attending a Beach Boys concert. Being a woman of many interests, even in her last days she was a faithful fan of college basketball, especially the Kansas Jayhawks. Above all of her interests however, her family always came first.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Jacobson, mother, Eula Pearl Collins, father, R.V. Hickman, brother, Robert Vernon Hickman, sisters, Billye Jean Crum, Merle Elaine James, a daughter, Judith Marie Scheid and son, Stephen Darnell Scheid.

She is survived by her sons, Jesse Patrick Jacobson, Steven Eugene Jacobson, Michael Craig Jacobson, a daughter, Patricia Ann Bridges and a brother, Glenn and wife Pat Collins and sister, June Hodges, cousin, Cherry Lou Angel, 13 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren, 8 great-great grandchildren and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
