Mrs. Jeffery was the cornerstone in Wabash Circle. She was a mother to a lot of us and she would watch us as we played fouch football in the street. We love you and you will be missed. 2B8 C

I am deeply sadden by Ms. Alice Jeffery's passing. I was just visiting her on Sunday and today, she is in Glory. Ms. Jeffery was always her authentic self. I loved that about her. If I was away too long, she sent me and my children cards or called to check. I have a few words to describe Ms. Jeffery. She was: kind, firm, spunky, determined, thoughtful, smart, dedicated, independent, thoughtful, faithful, comical and loving, but you'd better not touch her. I will miss you dearly at the MET. Be comforted family and know she is resting in the loving arms of The Lord.

With deepest sympathy I would like the Jeffery family to know that I am praying for them. May God lighten their hearts. I’m a big hugger and as most of you who knew her she did NOT!! I would TAKE me a hug every time I saw her, and she would fuss but I knew it was all in love! Rest peacefully Mrs. Jeffery. We will miss you ❤️
