Patricia Kappes Jacob

January 22, 1934 ~ November 18, 2020 (age 86)


Patricia Jacob passed away on November 18, 2020 at her home in Uvalde surrounded by her immediate family. She was known as Patty by her friends and Gran by her grandchildren and great grandchildren.


Patty was born January 22, 1934 in Accomac County, Virginia to Karl and Mildred Kappes. She grew up on the Eastern Shore of Virginia where she attended school in Onancock, Virginia. Patty married William Custis Jacob Jr. (Bill) in 1955. Soon thereafter she moved to Uvalde as a young bride with Bill who was in the produce business. For many years Patty assisted Bill in the produce business in the Uvalde Area in the winter months and on the Eastern Shore of Virginia in the summer months.


Patty and Bill had three children, William Custis Jacob III, Karla Jacob Davis and Tricia Jacob all of whom attended school and graduated high school in Uvalde. 


She was very close to her children but especially close after Bill passed in 1985. Then with grandchildren, and then later great grandchildren, Patty’s main focus was family. A phenomenal cook, everyone enjoyed Gran’s meals. Patty was a member of the First Baptist Church of Uvalde. 


Her survivors include her brother Jerry Kappes and his wife Jackie Kappes of Bethany Beach, Delaware, her son William Custis Jacob III and fiancee, Mandy Pruitt of Uvalde, her daughter Karla Kappes Davis and husband John Allen Davis Jr. of Midland, Texas and their children John Jacob Davis and wife Elizabeth Davis of Midland, Texas, Kyle Allen Davis and wife Chelsea Davis of Midland, Texas and Kali Ann Davis also of Midland, Texas as well as great grandchildren Case, Emma, Bradford, Campbell, Annie and Mary Kyle of Midland, Texas.


She was preceded in death by her parents, Karl and Mildred Kappes, her husband, Wiliiam Custis Jacob, Jr. and her youngest daughter, Tricia Jacob.


Patty will be missed by family and friends. However, she has fought the fight and finished the race. Because of her deep faith and assurance of salvation through Jesus Christ we know she is in a better place.
