Cora was born August 26, 1936, in Lafayette. She was a loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend. Her love for children was enormous. Cora was known as the "Momee" of the neighborhood, and she would spoil everyone like they were her own. She enjoyed cooking, going to the casino, and visiting with her family and friends. Cora will be deeply missed.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Hoover Jacobs; parents, Anthony Berard, Sr. and Lillian Gardner Berard; brothers, Willis Drake, Charles Ambrose, and Anthony Berard, Sr.; and sisters, Dolores Ambrose and Rose Mary Alexander.
