They had 60 years of marriage before he died in March, 2008. Jeffie, called Ma by her family, was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She dedicated her life to her family and friends. Her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren were the light of her life and she attended all of their activities that she could. She was a member of the O’Quinn Baptist Church and the Ruth Sunday School Class for many years. Jeffie was a wonderful cook and people always requested her Mexican cornbread, dumplings, pecan pie, and raisin pie at family gatherings. Her favorite pastime was playing forty-two and she played every opportunity she got. She especially looked forward each week to playing with her group of friends at O’Quinn and her group of friends at Red Town.
