Sherry (Kershnar) Jacobson, born February 12, 1941, passed away May 6, 2020 after a long illness. Born in Brooklyn, NY, and having resided in Livingston, NJ and Nanuet, NY, she retired and lived the past 21 years in the Saddlebrooke Community in Tucson, AZ. She was graduated from the Baruch School of City College and then worked as an accountant at Apfel & Englander. After her kids were in school, she managed the U.S. office of Fildan Accessories, while also working summers at Camps Wahconah-Potomac and Pontiac. Throughout her life, she enjoyed eating chocolate, baking, crocheting, rooting for the NY Rangers and NY Mets, seeing Broadway shows, as well as attending Harry Belafonte and Johnny Mathis concerts. In her retirement, she spent time walking with friends, playing tennis, square dancing, playing bridge and attending hors d’oeuvres parties. But most of all she adored spending time with her family and friends. She was a loving wife to her husband Jake, a wonderful mom to her children (Alyse, Pam, Steven, Lara, and Mark) as well as a doting MeMa to her grandsons (Max and Ben). She was predeceased by her parents Morton and Sally Kershnar and her sister-in-law Sue Kershnar. She is survived by her husband Louis Martin aka Jake Jacobson; her children Alyse (Mark), Pam, Steven (Lara); her grandsons Max and Ben; as well as her siblings Mel, Rivka, Harris (Tessa).
love, Barry & faith
Although I never had the opportunity to meet her parents, I have enjoyed a friendship with Pam for over 10 years after meeting her in the NY office. She talks about her family with great admiration and love and is so much like you - very generous, caring and thoughtful. After reading Sherry’s obituary, I see why Pam enjoys baking (especially her chocolate chip cookies) like her mother.
At this time of sorrow, may you find comfort in your memories.
