Please see previous postings on the Jacobs and Frank Family:
Dora Schram Jacobs was the wife of Jack Jacobs and mother of Frances and Morris Jacobs.
Dora with her Grandchildren June and Bill.
Dora was called Dotty by family members. Her Granddaughter, June Frank Frost Curran, shared her memories of her Grandmother’s later years when we spoke on August 3, 2014. The family lived in Brooklyn during this time.
• June remembers coming home from school and sometimes there would be other people at the kitchen table that Dora had prepared a meal for. Dora loved to share food with other people.
• In particular, June remembers how close Dora was to the officers of the 66th Precinct. Dora loved to give them something to eat when she met them on the street. They thought very highly of her.
• Dora was a very lively person. Once Dora was at a party with June’s Cousin who is also named Frances. It was very boring. Dora got up on the table and began to sing. The party really came to life after that and everyone enjoyed the rest of the evening.
• Dora passed away peacefully in her sleep on January 3, 1979. She was laid to rest in New Montefiore Cemetery, Long Island, New York in the plot next to her daughter Frances.
