Geraldine Katherine Jacobson, nee Shrock, age 82, passed away at Evergreen in Oshkosh with family by her side on Sunday, January 19, 2020. She was born in the Town of Warren, Waushara County, on August 18, 1937, the daughter of the late Simon and Delephine (Disterhaft) Shrock. Geraldine was raised in the Catholic Faith and the Rosary. On October 29, 1955 she married Rexford Hans Jacobson at St. Mary Catholic Church in Redgranite, WI. They were blessed with 56 years of marriage and had six children together. Rex passed away on November 15, 2011. Geraldine was a devoted employee at the Reeve Memorial Bookstore in UW-Oshkosh for many years and enjoyed spending time with her previous co-workers. She was a wonderful homemaker who lovingly cooked many favorites, especially biscuits, chicken noodle soup, and cakes and pies. She also enjoyed knitting and created many sweaters, scarves, slippers and Afghans. Geraldine will be remembered for her collection of angels, and for being a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, godmother, aunt and friend.
