Elizabeth (Betsy) M. Jacobsen, 60

Betsy was born Feb. 24, 1959, in Virginia, Minnesota, to Julie and Peter Jacobsen.

Betsy excelled in her career as an accountant. More than anything, Betsy had a love for her family, her horses and her dogs that could be matched by no other. In 2004, Betsy moved to Tennessee, where she resided at the time of her death. Betsy fought a brief but strong battle with oral cancer.
