Dear Mary Ann, my sympathy to you and your family. Your Mother was a wonderful, wonderful Lady! I’ll always remember your Mother and Father; they set the bar so high for all married couples and parents. Don’t know how high you can get up in Heaven, I just know they’re at the top.

Dearest Jobe Family: There is no doubt that the first person to greet Pat upon her arrival in Heaven was Bob, waiting with open arms. Two very special people and a wonderful family!

Pat was such a lovely lady. Her love, care, concern and kindness for others was repeatedly displayed in both her personal life and her professional life. She shared an endless amount love with her husband Bob and her children. With Pat and Bob, they were inseparable. Each of them made life so much better for each other. Pat's professional life as a nurse so exhibited her competence, commitment and dedication and, of course, was coupled with her desire to help make life better for others. We all have to be so amazed with her involvement in her church and her community. Also, it can't go without saying what asset Pat was to Bob in his many roles as an administrator in Belleville School District 118. Linda and I want to extend our thoughts and prayers to the entire Jobe family and Mary Ann, Mike, Roberta and David, please know we so admire your mom and dad. Joe and Linda

Mary Ann my deepest condolences to you and your family. I loved reading your mom’s obit. It filled in a few details I did not know about her. She sounds like a wonderful lady and reminds me of my mom who Headed off to heaven a few years ago. I’m happy for your mom that she gets to now enjoy her much deserved heavenly rewards. I’m hoping you will start your new chapter knowing you were the best caretaker your mom could have had.

How blessed we were to host Pat and our pal Mary Ann at our place 6 yrs ago. We will always hold fond memories of her and her kind and generous acts... lunches, dinners and even golf! God has a new angel in heaven for sure. Pat, say hello to our parents and continue to watch over all of here on earth. Rest In Peace in God’s Holy Kingdom.

Mary Ann. I am so sorry for your loss I always enjoyed talking to your mom. It seemed we had a special bond since Mr Jobe and Jim struggled with the same disease. I remember her sweet disposition. She was lucky to have you look after her. You and the rest of your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Jobe Family, On behalf of the Knolhoff Family we send our deepest sympathy to your family. Your mom and dad were very special to our family. I personally loved seeing your mom at Holy Trinity and receiving her annual Christmas Letter. You could feel the love and tell how proud she was of all of you. I am so sad that I cannot be at the funeral as I will be in Kansas attending a wedding. Please know that I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.
