Allene Lamson Jacobs ’53

Allene Lamson Jacobs ’53, November 16, 2000, in Palo Alto, California. Jenny attended Reed for several years and met her husband, Edgar Jacobs ’53 there. She later attended San Jose State University, receiving a BA in psychology in 1966. Jenny and Edgar settled in Palo Alto and raised three children. She was a wonderful cook and avid gardener, and she later took up scuba diving, along with Edgar, and became an instructor. Survivors include Edgar, two sons, a daughter, and a granddaughter. To commemorate her love of books, the family asks that memorial contributions be given to the Reed College for the acquisition of library books.
