Elizabeth (Betty) Jacobson passed away June 3, 2020 at Edgewood Vistas.

She was born on June 29, 1934 in Las Vegas, NV to Forrest and Anita Weathers. She graduated from Emmett High School in Emmett, Idaho and then married Donald Thrall. After traveling for Don’s Navy career, they made their home in Missoula with their four children. They later divorced. In 1976, she married Russell Jacobson.

Betty was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church. She also participated in Toastmistress and was a member of the Watercolor Society. She worked on many county elections and for the University of Montana as well as being a member of the Montana Watercolor Society. She enjoyed workshops and selling many of her paintings. The highlight of her watercolor career was having a painting accepted into the C.M. Russell Auction.

Her love of gardening was evident in her beautiful yard that grew flowers for every season.

She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings, Keith, Norman and Douglass, Sybil, Barbara and Beverly. Also preceding her were her son Robert Keith, husband Russ and first husband Donald Thrall.

Survivors include daughters Diane (Steve), and Debbie, son Doug (Tara); Step-sons Mike (Diana) and Randy (Diane); Grandchildren, Sarah (Eric), Beth (Jeff), Jenny (Wyley), Rachel, Amanda, Dawn (Scott), Tory, Lauren, and 7 great-grandchildren.

A family graveside service will be held. We hope to have a traditional service at a later time when we can celebrate Betty’s life with friends and family.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a donation to Immanuel Lutheran Church in Missoula or Hospice of Missoula.

We were very saddened to read of Betty's death in the Missoulian! As fellow members of Immanuel Lutheran Church in the 1980s and 1990s, we knew Betty well. In addition, periodically I would meet with Betty and mutual friend Joyce Koostra , both watercolor artists, for coffee or lunch. Our children were about the same ages, and we enjoyed and appreciated similar things. Betty was a very thoughtful and talented woman. Blessed be her memory and sincere condolences to her family.
