Nicole Jacobson, died peacefully Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2012, at home surrounded by family.accurate
Nikki was born on Dec. 3, 1971, in Alexandria, to Harlan and Judy Jacobson. While growing up, she attended Battle Lake Christian School and Ashby Public School, later graduating from Evansville High School. Nikki attended Northwestern College where she graduated with a degree in psychology. She later obtained her master’s degree in Vocational Rehab Counseling.
Nikki had a sweet and gentle spirit, yet a strong and steady faith. She was active in her church, Bethlehem Baptist, where she was involved in Sunday school and small group Bible studies. Nikki loved the Lord, and her greatest desire was to honor and serve him faithfully. Never wanting attention on her, Nikki was known for her servant heart, perhaps most evident through her work as a Vocational Rehab Counselor for the State of Minnesota. She loved her job and her co-workers. Additionally, Nikki found joy in being a caregiver for a special young girl named Annie; all of Nikki’s family and friends knew how important Annie was to her.
Nikki had a determined and fearless personality which was especially known to her fellow hockey players. For years, Nikki was part of the Lamplighters/Surge hockey team, serving as their goalie. This team was special to Nikki, and she made many close friends as a result.
Nikki’s family and friends will miss her beautiful smile and quick sense of humor.
Nikki also enjoyed music, traveling, reading, and broomball, but perhaps most of all spending time with her friends, as well as her two dogs, Shelby and Sam. Nikki is survived by her parents, Harlan and Judy Jacobson, of Ashby; her brother, Shawn, and his wife, Jennifer, and their children, Kenna and Ava, of St. Louis Park; her brother, Tim, of Minneapolis; her sister, Brita, of Brooklyn Center; many other family members and friends.
Nikki was preceded in death by her grandparents, Andrew and Lucille Skogen, and Arthur and Harriet Jacobson.
