Doris E. Jacobson, of Eau Claire, died on Saturday, February 29, 2020 - 1 day short of her 94th birthday - at Marshfield Medical Center in Eau Claire.

Doris was born on March 1, 1926 to the late Melvin and Bertha (Klingel) Erickson in Eau Claire. On October 27, 1946 she was united in marriage to the love of her life, Marcellus "Mark" Jacobson at Grace Lutheran Church. Doris worked at the Starr Avenue Grocery 22 years before it closed. Since 1948 Doris was a very active and vital member of Hope Lutheran Church enjoying many years with the Ruth Circle, the Church Women, and her many friends who were like family to her. Doris loved to knit and crochet making countless mittens, baby items, prayer shawls and much more through the years. She was a skillful artist in Hardanger (which she learned just the last few years), Rosemaling and oil painting. She and Mark were both very proud of their Norwegian heritage. Doris was a very special person who will be deeply missed by many.

She is survived by her sister-in-law, Carol Erickson; and many generations of nieces, nephews, other relatives and dear friends.

Doris was welcomed home by her husband, Mark; parents; mother- and father-in-law, Andrew and Mathilda (Swenson) Jacobson; brothers, William (Marion), Charles, Edward (Betty), Archie, and Richard; brothers-in-law, Everett, Clarence (Margaret M.), and Kermit (Margaret C.) Jacobson; sisters-in-law, Esther (Axel) Gunderson, Alma (Harold) Berg, Mildred (Carl) Iverson, and Adeline (Erling) Gunderson.

Honoring a life with a meaningful service is an important step in the grief process and is a gift to their family and friends —
a gift of memories and a gift of healing
