91, passed away peacefully on April 1,2021 in Tucson, Az. and was surrounded by her
children David, Kenny, Diana Lynn and Patrice. She was born 5/17/29 in Leavenworth, KS
to William and Lillie McIntosh and was a citizen of the Muskogee Creek Nation.
Her family moved to Tucson, Az in 1945 where she graduated from Tucson High School in 1947.
Shortly after, she married her high school sweetheart, pitcher Eddie Jacome which began her love
of sports, expecially baseball. After high school she worked in the jewelry industry and
secretarial work for several years. Then, after many nights of study she entered the
world of finance and became the first woman stockbroker in Tucson. She worked in
financial investments until her retirement. Growing up we spent many weekends playing
in Sabino Canyon or on Mt Lemmon. She taught us to love and respect our great outdoors
and so much more.
After we graduated from high school, she remarried and started her own adventures.
She lived in both Florida and Arizona for more than 40 years enjoying deep sea fishing,
looking for the prettiest shells she could find, or just sitting on the beach.
On a sunday afternoon you could find her in Wellington,Florida sitting in the stands
watching a polo match. Also living in Sonoita, Arizona she enjoyed ranch life, wide
open spaces and the beauty of the Arizona sunsets. Mom returned to Tucson in 2010
to enjoy her final years. She was an avid reader of all types of books, magazines
and newspapers. She always knew what was going on in the world, sometimes with a little
help from David Muir(her favorite news anchor). She enjoyed a variety of music,
but her favorite group was The Eagles. She supported the arts and attended many
performances. She believed in giving back to the community and donated to many
organizations both locally and nationally. She loved and followed all sports
throughout the year. If someone came to her house to give an estimate for home projects
and they liked baseball, most likely they would be the one hired!
She made every family gathering and all holidays special. Holiday decorations were very
important. She was a great cook and enjoyed doing all of the preparations for
our family dinners. This always included setting a beautiful table with our
name tags and showing where we were to be seated. She loved all of it. She was loyal to her
family and her friends. People were drawn to her for her personality, witty sense of humour,
great laugh, and beautiful smile. Our Mother was the backbone of this family,
our rock and our leader. She was supportive, protective, generous,and just a beautiful
gracious woman. We know we cant live forever, but we sure wish we could have another moment
with our Mom. Mom, we love you. You are in our hearts forever.
Survived by her children, David(Joy)Jacome of Green Valley,Az, Kenny(Sherry)Jacome of Tucson,
Diana Jacome of Tucson, Patrice King of Florida, sister Billie Jane McIntosh of Flagstaff, Az.
She also had 8 grandchildren that she loved and adored. They are Tavis Jacome, Brandon Jacome,
Cameron Jacome, Kenny Jacome Jr, Jason Jacome, Kris Schliedermann, Diana King and Stephen King.
Also there are also 14 precious great-grandchildren and many loving extended family and friends.
We thank Amedysis Hospice and our two caregivers Treva and Cindy for giving Mom the best
possible care. Any donations should go to the organization of your choice in her name.
The gospel rescue mission was one of Mom's favorites. Because of the pandemic, the
celebration of life will be delayed. An announcement will follow in a few months.
To the best Mom ever....Happy Mothers Day!
