Caroline Jacobson of Paddock Lake celebrates 100th birthday

Friends, family and government officials helped Paddock Lake resident Caroline Jacobson celebrate her 100th birthday Sunday at a reception at Village Hall.

Jacobson cheerfully accepted well wishes from friends, family and neighbors. She also was honored with honorary resolutions from several government bodies, including the state legislature, the county and the village.

“I have been her neighbor for 23 years,” said Kathy Christensen. “She is a wonderful woman — friendly and very kind.”

Jacobson was born in Chicago on June 22, 1911 and had seven siblings — five sisters and two brothers.

She married Norman Jacobson in the 1930s. They moved to Paddock Lake in the early 1960s. Jacobson retired from Simpson Electric of Chicago, IL.

Caroline and her husband loved fishing and ceramics and to this day she loves cooking and baking.
