Elfrieda « Fritzi » Jacobi
Jacobi, Elfrieda “Fritzi” , age 87, of Dartmouth
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Fritzi Jacobi on January 9, 2019,, at Bissett Court in Dartmouth.
Fritzi was born in Klostergrab in Bohemia, the daughter of the late Willibald and Emma (Rehwald) Heymann.
In July of 1945 she was forced from her home, eventually making her way with her family to Frankfurt, Germany arriving in 1946. There she met the love of her life the late Arno Jacobi. They were married and immigrated to Canada in 1953, settled in Dartmouth and raised their family. She was a devoted wife, Mama and Oma. Her unconditional love and support gave many the foundation to navigate life. She loved to travel, entertain and cook for family and friends. Many will still remember the epic parties at the Jacobi’s home on Christmas Eve and at the cottage in Mineville. She helped Arno and then son Eric build and run a successful business, she was the heart and soul of the company.
She will be forever missed, but never forgotten by her sons Wolf (Carol MacGillivray) and Eric (Marlene Williams), former daughter-in-law Sharon (Appleby) Jacobi, grandchildren Petra Corkum (Jonathan), Alex (Jenny Hanrahan), Laura and Gage, step-grandchildren Evan and Morgan Williams and great grandchildren Landon and Allie Corkum and Arlo and Mila Jacobi.
She was predeceased by her brother Heinz (Lorraine) Heymann of Montreal.
There will be a Memorial Service on Wednesday, January 16th at 10:00 a.m. at St. Vincent de Paul Parish, 320 Flying Cloud Drive, Dartmouth, with a reception to follow. Everyone is invited.
The family extends a sincere thank you to the staff at Bissett Court – Gammon neighbourhood for their care, compassion and dedication. Donations in her memory can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of Nova Scotia.
