Loraine L. Jacoby, age 92, of Belgium, Wisconsin passed away peacefully at home Saturday, October 30, 2021.

She was born in Random Lake on January 2, 1929; daughter of Harold and Mary Schladweiler Hass. Loraine grew up in Adell, moving to Milwaukee in 1942, graduating from North Division High School.  As a graduate of the Milwaukee Police Academy, Loraine was one of nine policewomen at the time.  She worked in the Detective Bureau and with juveniles.

On June 1, 1957, Loraine married Walter F. Jacoby of Belgium at St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Milwaukee.  She moved to Belgium, started a family and worked with her husband for many years on their dairy farm.

With the children older, Loraine took a job as a clerk at the Belgium Post Office in 1974.  She would later transfer to the Port Washington Post Office, retiring in 1992.

Wally would precede her in death on February 4, 2004.

Loraine had been active with the former St. Mary’s Parish in Lake Church; a former Cedar Grove/Belgium School Board member and the Catholic Order of Foresters.

To say Loraine was an avid Green Bay Packer fan is to put it mildly.  “Go Pack Go!!”

She is survived by her children Rosanne (Jack) Schoenemann of Oostburg, Steven (Diana) Jacoby of Cedar Grove, Susan Samson of Random Lake and Rita (Joseph) Schwalbach of Mequon; nine grandchildren Bradley (special friend Teresa) Schoenemann, Amanda (Jesse) Hoewisch, Steven (special friend Nikita) Jacoby, Kathryn (Nicole) Jacoby, Kari (Eric) McGaughey, Calvin (special friend Rebecca) Jacoby, Adam, Peter (special friend Sami) and Andrea Schwalbach; six great-grandchildren Joslyn, Leona, Conlen, Colton, Magnus and Etta; her sister Rose (the late LeRoy) Hass Leider of Belgium; caregiver and dear friend Charlene Cobb, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Loraine is preceded in death by her parents, her husband Wally, her granddaughter Kelsey Jacoby and grandson Luke Schwalbach.

A Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 3PM, Friday, November 5, 2021 at Divine Savior Parish-Holy Cross Church, 5330 County Highway B, Holy Cross, town of Belgium, WI.  Reverend Gideon Buya will be the celebrant.  Visitation from 1-2:45PM Friday AT CHURCH prior to Mass.  Interment will take place at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Lake Church.
