Obituary

Donald Edwin Jeffers, 81, of Boyds died Jan. 12 [2006] at home.

Born July 15, 1924, in Maryland, he was the son of the late Mark and Julia Jeffers.

He was the husband of Doris H. Jeffers for 56 years.
As a boy, Mr. Jeffers grew up on a farm and continued the tradition, starting with a small vegetable garden at home and eventually maintaining his parents-in-law's farm. He enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1944 and served in France and Germany during World War II.

After completing his tour of duty, Mr. Jeffers began working for the Federal Civil Service and was an electrician at Bethesda Naval Hospital. He retired 30 years later as the Director of Public Works at the National Naval Medical Center.

Mr. Jeffers was an assistant coach for the Monocacy Wildcats. His hobbies included camping, hunting, fishing, golf and square dancing. He and his wife were founding members of the 2 x 4 Square Dancing Club. He was an active member of the 43rd MR & R Squadron and the Izzak Walton League, a board member of the Boyds Credit Union and an officer of the American Legion, Daniel Jeffers Post 247.

Survivors in addition to his wife include a daughter, Brenda Thew and husband, Lee of Jefferson; a son, Tom Jeffers of Middletown; two sisters, Helen Lewis of Leland, N.C. and Jean Voytko of Moneta, Va.; two brothers, Paul Jeffers of Frederick and Mark Jeffers of Monrovia; four grandsons and several nieces and nephews. He will be especially remembered by his friends and neighbors, the Nejati family, who thought of him as a grandfather. He was preceded in death by a daughter, Karen, who died in 1978, and two brothers, Benton and Richard Jeffers.

A mass of Christian Burial was celebrated at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Barnesville. Interment followed in the church cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, Grand Central Station, P.O. Box 4777, New York, NY 10163-3772.
