Franklin – Lois Virginia Jacobs Meadows, age 98, born February 2, 1922, of Franklin, NC, passed away in the early hours of Friday, March 6, 2020.

Born in Franklin, NC, she was the daughter of Eugene L. Jacobs and Bessie B. Baldwin Jacobs.

She was preceded in death by her husband, William V. Meadows; her parents, Eugene (Gene) Jacobs and Bessie B. Baldwin; her beloved twin sister, Kate Jacobs Cowan; her brothers, J. C. Jacobs, Radford Jacobs and Carroll Jacobs. She was also preceded in death by her sisters-in law Elizabeth Meadows, Lilly Meadows Myers, Pauline Meadows Gillespie and Catherine Meadows Rogers and one brother-in-law Zeb Meadows.

She is survived by her daughter, Regina and husband David Curtis; her two precious grandchildren, Chandra Brewer and Vanessa Moore; her sister, Helen Jacobs Byrd and many special nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her wonderful friend, Pat Smith.

With the exception of living in northern California for several months with her husband and young daughter, she has always made Franklin, NC her home. She loved the NC mountains, and especially Franklin and her community.

She was a business owner for over 45 years. She and her husband owned the Sunset Restaurant, and were the first owners of the City Restaurant. Later, she and her twin sister, Kate, opened The Boutique on Main Street in Franklin. She owned and ran The Boutique for over 30 years, until, at the age of 78, her health forced her to retire.

She was a member of the Business and Professional Women’s Club of Franklin for many years.

She was a lifelong member of Iotla Baptist Church. In years past, she served as an Assistant Girls Sunday School teacher, helped with Vacation Bible School, and, more recently, was a member of the “Sew ‘n’ Sews” sewing group.

When she was younger, she enjoyed traveling the world, working in her garden and reading. But what made her happiest, was working in her boutique on Main Street. In later years, she loved working with the
“Sew ‘n’ Sews” sewing group of Iotla Baptist Church.

There will be a private family service in the chapel of Macon Funeral Home. She will be buried beside her husband at Iotla United Methodist Church.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Iotla United Methodist Church Food Pantry, Attention: Rebecca Chastain, 187 May Apple Lane, Franklin, NC 28734 or the Iotla Baptist Church “Sew ‘n’ Sews”, 1537 Iotla Church Road, Franklin, NC 28734.
