Beverly-Ann (Mollerstrom) Jacobson was born on January 22, 1933 in Detroit Lakes, MN, to Willard and Ethel (Anderson) Mollerstrom.
Her family moved to Hillsboro when she was a teenager. She graduated from Hillsboro High School in 1951. She married her high school sweetheart (Buddy) in October of that same year.
They made their home on the family farm west of Hillsboro where they raised their three daughters. In addition to being a good wife and mother, Bev was right in there working hard, side by side with Buddy.
Bev was best known for her fun personality and her enjoyment of jokes (even if they were her own). She was also known as “Boom -Tap -Tap” when she was the drummer for the Roadrunners. They had a blast playing for wedding dances, house parties, and other various occasions. Even the jam sessions led to many great memories. Bev and Bud enjoyed traveling south in their Winnebago in the winter and parking it at Twin Lakes in the summer. Another nickname was born for Bev as the “Bean Bag Queen” when they introduced the bean bag game to Hillsboro, Blanchard, and Pinehurst.
Bev’s heart broke when Buddy passed away in 1995. In 2000, she moved into a house in Hillsboro. Her new past times included taking road trips, playing blackjack, and “occasionally” going to casinos.
Despite surviving several medical conditions, her big heart finally gave out on Sunday, April 1, 2012.
Bev is survived by her daughters, Patty (Greg) Hansen of Hillsboro; Jackie (Gary) Troitte of Reynolds, ND; and Kelly Jacobson of Hillsboro; her five grandchildren, Jadey (Angela) Hansen of Westminster, CO; Shane Gaffney of Tallahassee, FL; Cody Lee of West Fargo, ND; Gina (Jesse) Egge of Castle Rock, CO; and Stefannie (Bryan) Carter of Crawfordville, FL; and her three great-grandchildren, Chase and Bryce Carter; and Oliver Hansen. Also surviving are her six siblings, Wilma Rasmussen of Vacaville, CA; Alice (Jim) Hill of Ouray, CO; Bill Mollerstrom of Richmond, CA; Sharon (Vern) Hanson of King City, OR; Karen (Roy) Lingenfelter of Aumsville, OR; Jim (Sue) Mollerstrom of LaGrande, OR; her sister-in-law, Janet Reinhardt of Tucson, AZ; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Bev was preceded in death by her husband, Floyd “Buddy” Jacobson; her parents; her brother, John; her sister, Jodi; and her brother-in-law, LeRoy “Jake” Jacobson.
