Anna Sue was born in Marietta on Oct. 25, 1941, the daughter of Charlie Dvorak and Teddie Bell Wilson. She and David Jacobs were married on June 27, 1961, in Poteau, Okla. For a time, Anna Sue worked as a cafeteria cook and substitute teacher for the Marietta Public School system, but mostly she devoted her life to being David’s companion, assisting him with his many businesses. From helping run the restaurant, managing the gas station, driving cars for the car lot, to accompanying him on any other errand, Anna Sue was always by his side supporting him and their family. Her family was her passion. She loved her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren with all her heart and devoted her life to caring for them, and in her last moments they were there to comfort her.
