Doris Jacober 98


WORCESTER, MASS. – Doris A. Jacober passed away March 17. She was the beloved wife of the late Henry (Hank) Jacober. Born in Salem, Massachusetts, she was a daughter of the late Mortimer and Lena (Schwalb) Stein.

Doris loved dancing, golf and flowers. She was beautiful on the dance floor with Hank, proud as a peacock of her hole-in-one, a gifted perfectionist with the beautiful floral arrangements she did for many of the family's occasions. She volunteered for the intellectually disabled, and for those hospitalized. She was a born leader, the chair of many of her children's school organizations, a Den mother, and past president and lifelong member of Hadassah. Doris reached out constantly to her many friends from all generations, some lifelong, others more recent. Until the end, she had her phone book by her side and made her calls. She will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her son Mark Jacober and his wife, Carol, formerly of Rhode Island; sister Minette Zitowitz; grandchildren Leah Beard and her husband, David, Emily Jacober and her fiancé, Jon, and Ian Jacober and his wife, Francesca; and great-grandchildren Norah and Mae Beard. She was the mother of the late Gary Jacober and the sister of the late Leo Stein.
