Martha K. Jacobs

October 10, 1937 - October 28, 2015

Martha Kathleen Udink Jacobs completed her second estate on October 28, 2015 relieving her of years of pain and suffering.  She was the twelfth of fourteen children born October 10, 1937 to George Udink Sr. and Grace Hansen, both of whom emigrated from the Netherlands in the early 1900’s.


She graduated from Weber High School in 1955 and was the first girl to graduate High School in her family. Martha had a beautiful singing voice and performed in church plays, funerals, and choirs. She was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her first love was to be with her family. She was a friend to all who knew her and was an inspiration of goodness and kindness.  She had a spontaneous smile that would brighten any room.


She married Paul A. Jacobs in Ely, Nevada on July 30, 1966 and they were later sealed for time and all eternity in the Logan L.D.S. temple on September 25, 1967.


Martha is survived by her husband Paul, their 3 children, Michael (Sherry) Jacobs, Melissa (David) Pendergast, Brad (Aimee) Jacobs, twelve grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Also surviving are siblings Nora Ferrebee, Denver, Colorado, Mary Thomas, Thermopiles Wyoming, Grace Campbell, Kenilworth, Utah, Emma Bruce, Layton, Utah and Henry (Tom) and Elaine Udink Plain City, Utah.


She was preceded in death by her parents, seven brothers and one sister.


Special thanks to all those who, throughout the years, loved and cared for her and helped extend her life. We love you as did Martha. Your kindness and love will always be remembered.


Funeral services will be held on Monday, November 2, 2015 at 11:00 am at the Westwood LDS Ward Chapel, 2123 North 2000 West, Farr West, Utah.

Condolences for Martha K. Jacobs

Both Paul and Martha have been good friends to me since I was widowed. I'm sorry that he has to live without her for a while now. A very sweet lady. Tine

I'm so sorry at my mistake on the first condolence that I left. I guess I didn't read the obituary close enough the first time and I assumed that her husband had previously passed away. Thanks to my wife for pointing out my blunder, I was informed that he is still very much alive. My apologies to your family and to Paul Jacobs for my mistake. (And thanks to my wife for keeping me in line)

I was so sorry to hear of your mothers passing. The loss of a parent is a tragic thing and I know of no words to describe it, Karen and I both know know how hard it is to lose a parent and if there is anything we can do to help you through this difficult time, please don't hesitate to ask. Take comfort in knowing that she is back home with Jesus Christ and her beloved husband. Our deepest sympathies.

May the God and Creator ( Psalms 83:18. ) give peace of heart and mind to the family. Hope for the future from from God' s Word : Isaiah 25:8.

Dear Paul, It has been so many years since I have seen you and Martha. I have fond memories of you and she, during the years that we worked for the Weber County School District. May you and your family be blessed and comforted by our Lord. Peace be with you. May God continue to bless you. Respectfully, Bruce and Joyce Hartman Ogden, Utah
