Luella Jacobs was my grandmother. She was a loving & devoted wife, caring & cherished mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, one of the most beautiful & strong woman I have had in my life.
Luella Maixner was born October 19, 1926 on the family homestead near Buffalo Springs, ND. The youngest daughter of John and Luella (Langer) Maixner. She was raised and educated near the homestead, and graduated from St. Mary’s High School, New England in 1944. She then went to work for the New England Creamery until 1946. Luella married Walter Jacobs on November 26, 1946 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, to become such an inspiration of love and faith. In the spring of 1947 they bought a farmstead 10 miles southeast of Amidon, ND. Luella & Walt raised 10 wonderful children on the farm, creating such a blessed family that would never cease growing of friends, loved ones, stories & laughter. In 1982 they moved to New England and in 1989 bought the Maixner home, where they have lived since. Luella lived a life of Christian charity, no one entered her home who was not loved, accepted, and fed. She loved baking bread, gardening, playing pinochle, denim quilting, sewing and making Christmas ornaments for all of the many grandchildren.
