In Memory

Cathy Jacobson (Blome)

Cathryn Anne Blome, 56, passed away Monday, February 25, 2019, at Methodist Hospital in Des Moines, IA.

Cathy was born August 19, 1962, in Fort Dodge, IA, to Phillip and Anne (Griffiths) Jacobson. She married Jason Blome on September 9, 1995.

Cathy had a varied professional career, starting as a dental assistant out of high school, followed by a time as a medical receptionist, and a bank teller. But the career highlight for Cathy - and the one that brought her the most joy - had to have been her time running an at-home daycare, bringing love and smiles to the children she cared for.

Her hobbies outside of work were just as varied, excelling in a multitude of art and craft projects, such as card-making, scrapbooking, painting and sewing. She also loved fun in the sun, taking in the rays while sunbathing, going out on the boat during summers at Lake Panorama and Lake Okoboji, and dancing and laughing with good friends to good tunes.

Cathy is survived by her husband, Jason Blome; daughter, Aubrey Burkett of Des Moines, IA; son, Austin Burkett of Dallas Center, IA; stepson Zach (Laura) Blome of Van Meter, IA; stepdaughter, Bree (Shae) Ary of Adel, IA; brothers Mark Jacobson of New York City, New York and Michael Jacobson of Fort Dodge, IA; grandchildren Jett and Gage Ary, Gunner and Bowen Blome, as well as many friends and family. She was preceded in death by her parents and sister Diane.

The family will receive friends from 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM Saturday, March 2, 2019 at Brandt Funeral Home in Dallas Center with services immediately following. Contributions may be made to the family for a future memorial. A gathering will be held had at Dallas Center Memorial Hall, second floor. There will be food and beverages as well as elevator access on the south side of the building for those who need it.
