Nancy Jabocsen, 72 - February 13, 2018

Nancy Jean (Tridle) Jacobsen was born May 2, 1945, to Dale Wallace and Goldie Marie (Dowd) Tridle in Kimball. She died Feb. 13, 2018, in Akron, Colo., at the age of 72.
She grew up in Kimball and loved helping her father work on the farm. She was kind of a Tomboy growing up and loved the farm life. She had four children—Joan Marie, Scott Allen, Kevin Lee, and Teddy Eugene Jr., who she loved dearly. She was an avid gardener when her kids were little and she canned everything from the garden. She had many jobs through the years but only two that she loved to talk about—nursing and truck driving.
When her children were younger she was a nurse’s aide and her favorite place to help out was in surgery. Although she loved being in surgery her passion was driving truck, which she managed to do for over 30 years. She hauled cattle, fertilizer—but most of the years were spent hauling grain. She had many different trucks throughout the years but her favorite was Miss Kitty. She loved to tell the stories of all her truck driving adventures. During her years as a truck driver she made many friends along the way. She also loved all of her grandchildren and great- grandchildren and they loved having sleepovers at G-ma’s house. She also loved country music and dancing.
She was preceded in death by her parents and an infant sister, Sonia Marie Tridle.
She is survived by her daughter, Joan (Tom) Keyes of rural Oshkosh; three sons—Scott (Becky) Jacobsen of Akron, Colo., Kevin (Dixie) Frink of Maywood, and Teddy (Laura) Frink of Arapahoe; 11 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, one great-great granddaughter, and many extended family, and friends.
Funeral services were held at Maywood Christian Church, Feb. 19, with Pastor Dale Heimer officiating. Interment followed in the Maywood Cemetery in Maywood.
Memorials may be directed to the family.
