Edis Jacobs

Edis Jacobs, a long-time resident of Mariposa passed away on July 7, at 86.

Edis was born near Jackson, Mississippi on June 10, 1926, the daughter of Henry and Dovie Dismukes. She was raised with her five sisters and two brothers in Arizona and lived in Southern California until moving to Mariposa in 1975.

Edis worked various jobs in and around Mariposa but her career spanned mostly at Muir Lodge and The Miner’s Inn as the desk clerk. Edis loved being a homemaker and had a passion for reading. She loved reading and her last years of being blind continued that zeal with books on tape from the Mariposa Library. Edis resided the last four years in the Ewing Wing at John C. Fremont Hospital in Mariposa where the staff became her hospital family and she developed many close bonds of friendship.

Edis is preceded in death by her parents, her husband Joe (Jose) Jacobs, and two granddaughters. She is survived by her son, Danny Craghead of Mariposa and his four sons; her son and daughter-in- law, Larry and LaVona Craghead of Mariposa and their two daughters; her daughter and son-in-law, Gwen and Rod Gass of Redding and their two daughters; and many great grandchildren.

The family would like to thank the John C. Fremont Hospital Ewing Wing staff for all of their care, kindness and support these past years along with the John C. Fremont Hospital emergency room and acute care staff, Dr. Rogers, Sally Uribe and Helen Nobles.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to the Ewing Wing of Mariposa’s John C. Fremont Hospital. A celebration of life reception is pending.

I have fond memories of my

I have fond memories of my cousin and I spending the night at Gram's house playing games and telling stories. My sister and I going to work with Gram, where we would help out when we could so that we could go swimming in the pool. Looking back, we really didn't help much, we did more running around, but she always told us what a good job we did. As I grew up,moved away and had a family of my own,our visits were on holidays and full of family and friends. Until my children grew older and didn't need my undivided attention anymore our visits had been short.The past five years had been more intimate visits, Grams shared stories of her family, sisters, childhood and growing up. Now looking back those were very special moments that I'll never forget! I Love You, Gram!

I love you, Gram and miss you

I love you, Gram and miss you already. I miss visiting you, and feel an empty space. Big hugs!
