Penelope Kaye "Penny" Jacobson, 70, of Rockford, was called home December 27, 2015 after a courageous battle with cancer. She passed peacefully in her home surrounded by family and friends. Penny was born Jan. 9, 1945 in Rockford, the daughter of Henry J. and Esther (Apitz) Hanson. She was a graduate of East High School class of 1962. She married Leonard "Lenny" Jacobson on Oct. 6, 1978. She worked at Aqua Aerobic Systems for eight years, One Stop Financial for 25 years, and District 205 for eight years and retired in 2005.
Penny is survived by her husband, Lenny; children, Peter (Lisa), Robert (Amy), Melinda (Vince) Schideman, and Kristina "Nina" Jacobson; and grandchildren, Marc, Ty, and Maggie Jacobson, and Lane and Tavia Schideman. Predeceased by her parents; and sisters, Jane (Bud) Recht and Carol (Rod) Stenger. She will be remembered as a loving mother, not only to her four children, but to countless others that called her "mom". Her home was always full of love, laughter, and friends, and her glass full of wine. She will be dearly missed by so many.
