June 7, 1935 - November 5, 2021
Helen L. Jakubowski, age 86, of Toledo, Ohio, passed away on November 5, 2021, at Hospice of Northwest Ohio surrounded by her family. She was the youngest of six children born to Albert and Addie Sandlin on June 7, 1935. Helen was a 1953 graduate of Woodward High School. She married her high school sweetheart David Jakubowski on September 26, 1953. They enjoyed 65 years together raising a loving family until David's passing in 2019. Helen was a very special person who was loved and respected by her family, friends, and community. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She would light up a room wherever she went. People gravitated to her because they truly enjoyed being in her company. Helen lived her Christian faith by serving others. She would always be the first to volunteer for any activity. She especially enjoyed her many years of teaching Sunday school with her dear friend Glenda Kane. She also enjoyed her prayer and Bible study groups in Toledo and Bowling Green. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 sums up her life best: "Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." Helen is survived by her children, Douglas (Kay) Jakubowski and their children, Jeremy, Jonathan (Missy), Joy (Dave), Joseph (Jeanyne), Julianna (Dario), and Joanna (Jose); Kelly (Gregg) Emch and their son Matt (Lauren); Jim (Tracy) Jakubowski, and their children Kyle and Claire; and Beth Estep, and her children Josh (Davina) and Sarah (Brandyn); her 19 great-grandchildren; and her sister Wanda Kujawa. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, and brothers Glenn, Chuck, Harold and Lee Sandlin. Visitation will be Monday, November 8, 2021, from 4-7 p.m. in the Ansberg-West Funeral Home, 3000 Sylvania Ave., Toledo, Ohio. Due to COVID-19, masks are requested. Funeral services and burial will be private. The family is grateful for the excellent and compassionate care that she received at Hospice of Northwest Ohio of Perrysburg. In lieu of flowers, donations may be given to Champions in Action, Inc., of Bowling Green, Ohio or Hospice of Northwest Ohio.
