Obituary for Helen Geneva Jacobs

Helen Geneva (Hunt) Jacobs passed away peacefully in her Northridge California home of 45 years on January 5th 2020. Helen, the 8th of 10 children, was born April 4, 1936 in Detroit Michigan to Clyde & Mary (Crawford) Hunt. Helen was 83 years old.

Mom’s family left the great state of Tennessee for Michigan to find employment in the automobile industry during the great depression. She was born at home and raised in the Redford Union Township area of Michigan where she met her lifelong friends Loretta (Boyd) Frampus and Bonita Richards. Mom attended Redford Union High school. She accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at the age of 8 at Brightmoor Tabernacle Church under Reverend Bond Bowman. Mom’s favorite spot at church was the prayer room. She spent many hours there with her mother in prayer. Mom was a firm believer in the power of prayer all of her life and was a true intercessor prayer warrior.

Mom moved to California with her brother David in 1955 to live with her sister Thelma and her brother in-law Ronald Cooper. She attended Santa Monica Assembly of God Church under Reverend Phillip Hawtin. It was there, that she met the love of her life, Arthur Daniel "Dan" Jacobs, on the church steps. They were married November 10th, 1956.

Dan and Helen moved to the San Fernando Valley in 1960 amidst open fields and orchards. There they raised four boys (Christopher, Darrel, Jeffrey and Art) in Northridge California. They became members of Northridge Assembly of God church when it was located on Roscoe Blvd under Reverend Ralph Lotridge and have been faithful servants to the church over the past sixty years. Mom worked in the Sunday School office, taught Sunday School classes, she and my father were the Youth Leaders in the early 70’s and she started the Ladies Prayer Group with Marilyn Enos.

In addition to raising 4 boys a fulltime job in itself, Mom worked for many years in the markets as a meat wrapper. Later she worked with Dad for several years in the family printing business. In 1981 with 3 boys grown and flown and the youngest in high school, Mom's love of children and entrepreneurial spirit transformed her Northridge home into a successful daycare center. Mom touched the lives of many babies and toddlers. The first two being Erin known as "Princess" and "Dan-Boy"; and later a young Kevin and Jeff Bush. For years it was not unusual for Mom to receive visits and updates from her grown daycare children as they progressed through their teen years into adulthood joyfully sharing their own milestones.

Mom was a devoted mother and Christian. Her life was her family and the love of God. She loved unconditionally and would do whatever was needed for those in her care. That unconditional love was passed down to her boys, grandchildren (Shianne, Darrel Lee II and Connor), great-grandchild (Alex) and all of her daycare children.

Mom was preceded in death by her parents; 9 siblings Dalton, James, Clyde, Elizabeth, Earl, Thelma Cooper, Norman, David & Doris Price; and her son Jeffrey Todd Jacobs.

She is survived by her husband of 63 years, Dan Jacobs; sons Christopher (Annee), Darrel (Rachel) and Arthur "Art"; grandchildren Shianne (Alex) Almanza, Darrel and Connor; and great-grandson Alex Almanza.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday January 18th 2020, 11:00am at Nations Church (formerly Northridge Assembly of God) on 8460 Tampa Avenue in Northridge, California.

Flowers may be sent to Crawford Mortuary in Northridge, California, phone number (818) 349-9701.
