Barbara Lynn Jacobson Matilsky

Barbara Lynn Jacobson Matilsky, age 77 of High Springs, Fl, passed away on Wednesday January 4, 2017.
She was a wonderful wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and aunt. She was a sweet soul, who wanted nothing more than everyone around her to be healthy and happy. Barbara spent her life as a mother and business woman, owning and operating Coronet Fabric Mills in Gainesville, FL with her husband Herb of 58 years. She was born in Youngstown, Ohio on April 20th, 1939. Barbara loved spending time with her grandchildren and keeping up with their many dance recitals and activities, and filling her home with loved ones for every holiday occasion. She is survived by her husband Herbert Matilsky; her children Jeff Matilsky (Debbie), Randy Matilsky (Dana), and Jodi Douberly (Bill); her sister Sandy Zuckerberg (Joel); grandchildren Matthew Matilsky, Jessica Matilsky, Kate Douberly, Molly Matilsky, and Anni Douberly; Nieces and nephews Laura Zuckerberg, Aleasa Zuckerberg, Heath Zuckerberg, and Richard Grossman; and sister-in-law Judy Pelican (Tom). She was preceded in death by her mother and father Anne and Hyman Jacobson. A graveside service will be on Friday January 6, 2017 at 11:00 am at Forest Meadows Central Cemetery of Gainesville.
