We are very sad to announce the passing of Nancy Jacobson, wonderful mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, friend. She died peacefully at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Neenah just before midnight on Friday, July 28, 2023, due to several medical complications.

Nancy was born on May 10, 1937, in Oshkosh, WI to Gordon and Barbara Thiex and graduated from Winneconne High School in 1955. She was a faithful servant of the Lord and was the secretary of Grace Lutheran Church of Winchester for 42 years. Nancy enjoyed a good thunderstorm, going to the park with a good book, and going to restaurants. Above all she loved spending time with her family and friends. Everyone who met Nancy, immediately loved her and could tell a funny story about her or could tell you something she did to help them. She was a one-of-a-kind special person that will be missed by all.

Nancy is survived by her sons, Terry (Tracey) Jacobson, Cal (Wendy) Jacobson, Kip (Laura) Jacobson; daughter, Katie (Will) Ricketts; several grandchildren, Shelby (Christian) Bird, Kyle (Cameron) Jacobson, Taylor (Lauren) Jacobson, Tanner (Meaghan) Jacobson, Kiana and Dayne Jacobson; Izzy and Trevor Ricketts; several great-grandchildren; siblings, Jackie Van Asten, Peter (Nancy) Thiex; Lucine (Randy) Rieckman; and several other relatives.

She was preceded in death by a son, Lon; grandson, Spencer; granddaughter, Ashley; and brother-in-law, Guyland Van Asten. 

Per Nancy's wishes, cremation will take place and interment will be in the Grace Lutheran Cemetery in Winchester. A small Celebration of Life will take place in the fall with close family and friends.

Mueller Funeral Home-Winneconne is assisting the family. If you wish please submit online condolences to muellerfh.net.

Sending all my love to the entire family. Nancy was an amazing woman that impacted the lives of so many. Personally, she was truly like a 2nd mom to me throughout high school and beyond. Her infectious giggle and smile and countless memories will live with me forever, especially hanging with us “kids” out on the town or that dreadful night involving “ham sandwiches”. Love you Nancy!

Sympathy to family and friends. She was the kind of secretary anyone would have wanted working for them. Kind, helpful, professional and did a wonderful job for all those 42 years. Will miss that smiling face. ??????
