Betty Jean (Schwartz) Jacobson, 93, of Walker, Minnesota went home to her Lord and Savior on Sunday, October 11th, 2020 from the May Creek Cottages in Walker, MN.

Betty was born in Stillwater, MN on July 8th, 1927 to Alma (Schultz) and Frank Schwartz.  She grew up and attended school in Stillwater, graduating from high school in 1945.  She soon met the love of her life, Neal Jacobson, and on February 11, 1948 they were married.  Together they welcomed two sons into the world, Neal Jr. and Terence.  Betty was a homemaker when the boys where young but went to work for Hope Furs in St Paul for two years when the boys started school.  Betty and Neal lived all over the state of Minnesota and Fargo, ND before moving to Agency Bay in Walker in 1982.  Once in Walker, they became members of Hope Lutheran Church and the Leech Lake Riders Snowmobile Club.  Betty loved snowmobiling and playing golf, which kept her busy year-round.  She was known as B.J. at the Tianna Golf Club, where she was a member and wrote the Tianna T-Time article for the local Walker Pilot newspaper.  She lived a full life and is now together with her family.

Betty is reunited with her husband, Neal Sr.; her sons, Neal Jr. and Terence; her parents, Alma and Frank and her beloved cocker spaniel Barnaby.

She leaves behind her daughter in-law Linda Jacobson of Spring Lake Park, MN.
