Sherry Kay Jacobs, 81, of Muskegon County, passed away on Thursday November 18th 2021. Sherry was born in Muskegon, MI on November 12, 1940 to Forrest and Maxine Nelson. After she graduated from Muskegon High School in 1959, Sherry married her loving husband Tom Jacobs August 31, 1959. Their Love was the absolute best. A flirtatious kind of love, all the way to the end. She was his Queen. Together they had 7 children. Sherry devoted her time and energy to her family. Her charm and smile enlightened the room at any given moment. She marched to her own beat and made her own rules. Sherry enjoyed being with her family, fishing, trips to the casino, music and dancing. If Music was playing she was dancing. Together with her husband they showed her family what true love was. She will be deeply missed by friends, family, and all who knew her.
