Fort Worth, Texas – Corrine Rosenthal Bond Jacobson passed away peacefully Sunday morning, January 15. Mrs. Jacobson was 95.

A Service at the Grave will be held at 11 am Friday in the Beth-El Section of Greenwood Memorial Park. Her life will be celebrated at 12 pm Friday, January 20, in the Sanctuary of Beth-El Congregation, 4900 Briarhaven Road, with a reception to follow.

Born in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, Corrine was the daughter of Arthur and Rose Brunstein Rosenthal. Her mother was a housewife and devoted mother. Arthur had a career in sales that brought the family to Fort Worth when Corrine was ten years old where she remained the rest of her life.

Corrine’s career led her to be President of Southwest Gloves and Safety Supply where she managed a seven million dollar company during her tenure, being one of the few women to attain that position in the area.

Active in the religious aspects of life, she was a longtime member of Beth-El Congregation and other organizations. While serving on the Board of Directors of Beth-El, she was one of the first women to sit on the temple’s Bemah. Corrine worked at the Fort Worth Convention Bureau and at the Stockyards for many years where she greeted visitors and enjoyed many life-long friendships.

After her husband died unexpectedly, she was moved to write “A Handbook for Widows,” a book that has helped many people to handle their lives after the loss of a spouse.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Phil; son, Ed; two siblings; and countless friends.

In addition to her son, Steve and his wife, Cindy, Corrine is survived by her stepchildren, Elise Krug and her husband, Mark, Grant Jacobson and his wife, Janine, and Diane Schneider and her husband, Mike; and nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, please consider contributions to the Beth-El Congregation Religious School.

May her memory live on!
