She was married to Dr. Gene Jeffries for 64 years and was his partner in Gospel ministry in the United States, Australia, and around the world. After a career as an elementary school teacher, she taught pre-school in retirement for nine grandchildren. She played an instrumental role in leading her children and grandchildren to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, and she invested countless hours in teaching them how to follow Him. She was a graduate of Southwest Baptist University and Pittsburg State University and received a Master’s in Education from Cambridge Graduate School.

She was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers, Jack and Tommy.

I was saddened by the passing of Mrs. Jeffries but am hay that she is in heaven with her savior!!!!!! I have several memories of her but one stands out, I was traveling to Liberty Baptist College (1976) with her, her son Richard and daughter Teri. During the night, it was my turn to drive and every few seconds she would wake u and ask me how I was doing. This went on for a while till I told her that she was waking up so often, she had no idea it was that soon or often. She really was a sweet lady and gave me a lot of good advice.
