Tressa “Tressie” Jacobs, 88, of Bonner Springs, Kansas, died peacefully in her sleep on March 8, 2019, at The University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City surrounded by her loving family. Born February 10, 1931 in Jamestown, Kansas, she is preceded in death by her parents, Cecil and Electa (Beers) Goodell, her late husband of 54 years, Floyd Jacobs, and her son James “Jimmy” Jacobs.

Tressa was a master seamstress and owned and operated the Pre-Hop Dry Cleaners in Overland Park, Kansas for many years with her husband, Floyd. She provided alterations for the Marines at the 9th Marine Corps District and for several local police departments, including the Bonner Springs Police Department. She continued to provide alteration services for her family and friends throughout her life.

Tressa had an active social life and had many great friends. An avid lover of country music, she attended shows regularly. She also loved playing Wahoo and cards. During her younger years, Tressa enjoyed traveling all over the country with Floyd. One of her most beloved and favorite activities was finding great deals at garage sales with her daughter, Pam.

Her closest survivors include children, William (Julie) Jacobs of Versailles, Missouri and Pamela (Mark) Monn of Bonner Springs, Kansas, grandchildren, Samyra (Mike Merola) Jacobs, Richard Jacobs, Justin (Megan) Monn, Blair Monn, and Raechel (Mitchell Marion) Monn, great-grandchildren, Chayce Richardson, Jackson Jacobs, and Madelyn Merola, and countless other family and friends.

A life lived with zest, energy, shopping, yard saleing and lots of wonderful friends and memories, it is with great sadness that I say goodbye to my beautiful friend. A school mate of my mom, Arlene Peterson Wheelbarger, Tressa has been a member of our family for generations. The day that mom found Tressa in the dry cleaning shop in Kansas City was truly a blessed day. Separated since high school, this chance meeting brought our families together in ways we wonder at even now. Arlene's grand daughters, Hilary and Ktrina,(who lived in Arkansas) both attended college in Kansas City and came to lean on her for every event under the sun or under the Kansas snow, that relationship grew even stronger after mom moved back to Kansas and the two would galavant to Branson for weekends of country music and fun. Even after mom's passing we relied on Tressa to be our surrogate "mom" for the next 10 years. I feel I'm so blessed to have had Tressa in my life for these many beautiful years. Good bye sweet friend until we meet again. Patty
