Joyce Jacobs - Actress Joyce Jacobs Dies

British/Australian actress Joyce Jacobs has died at the age of 91.

The beloved personality passed away at a nursing home in Sydney on Sunday (15Sep13) following a decade long battle with Parkinson's disease.

After moving Down Under from England in 1962, Jacobs began her acting career, joining an amateur dramatics group before landing regular roles on soap operas Number 96 and The Young Doctors.

She found national fame when she moved to longrunning programme A Country Practice to play gossip Esme Watson. Her stint on the show ran from its pilot in 1981 until 1993. She later reprised her role when the show was briefly rebooted in 1994.

She went on to appear in longrunning medical drama All Saints in 1998 and 2000. Her death comes a year after the passing of her husband of 64 years, Ian.
