Obituary for Cora Maxine Stephens Jeffers

Cora Maxine Stephens Jeffers passed away from this life into the arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Monday, April 22, 2019. Maxine was born 91 years ago on a rural farm in Campbell County as the youngest of nine children, always grateful for the loving Christian home her preacher father and praying mother provided. At 17, during the war, she went to live and work in Oak Ridge for AEC. There she met and married her handsome husband Fred Jeffers. Together they lived in Oak Ridge for almost 70 years and raised their three children. Besides being a devoted homemaker, Maxine trained and worked as a nurse at Oak Ridge Hospital for a few years. She felt the greatest calling of her life was to serve her Lord Jesus Christ and so she loved teaching God’s Word in various home Bible studies and Sunday School classes. Maxine was a long-time member of Glenwood Baptist Church. Her prayers and the example of her life profoundly influenced her family and many friends.
Welcoming her in Heaven is her husband, Fred; her parents Arlis and Ethel Stephens; her brothers Hubert, Olaf, Etheridge, and AM. Stephens; and her sisters Dossie Trowbridge, Ruby Sharp, Lexie Trowbridge, an Nila Stegall. She will be sadly missed by her children Fred (Barbara) Jeffers of Greensboro, NC, Kathy (Doug) Smith of LaFollette,
TN, Philip (Barbara) Jeffers of Minneapolis, MN;
her grandchildren, Benjamin (Alexandria), Michael, William, Sophia, and Samantha Jeffers; her great-grandchildren Finn and Cassidy Jeffers. She also leaves behind many wonderful nieces and nephews. The family is especially appreciative of the help of her nieces Pam Stegall and Diane Lambert, great-nephew Drew Perry, special neighbors Nancy Snowden, Gwen and John Brennan, and caregivers Sharon Pridgen and Anna Hatfield. The family will receive friends Sunday, April 28th from 2 PM until 3 PM at Weatherford Mortuary with the funeral service following at 3 PM. Dr. Mark Walton will officiate. The graveside service will be held Monday, Noon at Woodward Cemetery in LaFollette. An online guest book may be signed at weatherfordmortuary.com
