Obituary for Beth Alayne Roof

Beth Alayne (Jacobs) Roof, age 54, of Council Bluffs passed away September 4, 2017 after losing her long and courageous battle with cancer. She was born in Council Bluffs on March 6, 1963 to the late George and Evelyn (Cole) Jacobs.

Beth loved fishing, camping, boating, and most of all, spending time with her "grandbabies," who were the love of her life. She worked for Gallner and Pattermann Law Firm for over 25 years, leaving for health reasons in 2016. She was a very dedicated and loyal bookkeeper for the firm; she loved her job and enjoyed working with all her coworkers and employers.

Beth was such a caring and loving person and would do anything for anybody. If anyone needed help or encouragement, she was right there for them. She was such a selfless person, putting everyone else first. Everyone felt blessed to have Beth in their life, as a wife, mom, grandmother, family member and friend.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sisters, Jeri Christensen and Sue Mortensen; in-laws, Ralph and Linda Roof; brothers-in-law, George W. Lane Jr., Junior Roof, Dick Christensen; nephew, Tom Roof; and step-son, Dustin Roof.

Beth is survived by her husband of 28 years, John Roof; sons, Erik Jacobs, John Roof (Sharon), Jack Roof (Dee); brother, Tom Jacobs (Kathy); sisters, Judy Lane (Vernon Porter), Andrea Zellmer (John); 9 grandchildren; and a host of other family and friends.

Memorial service is 11:00 a.m., on Saturday, at the Hoy-Kilnoski Funeral Home. The family will direct memorials.
