Anna Marie Jeffers
June 7, 1929 ~ December 14, 2018
Resident of Cupertino
Anna Marie passed away Friday, in her sleep after a short illness. It was family and friends that she treasured most, and she will be greatly missed. Born Anna Marie Troy in Buffalo, NY, she was proud of her Irish heritage. After graduating from Kensington High School in 1947, Anna worked as a secretary until her marriage in 1950. She and husband Robert raised six children in the Cupertino home they shared since 1959, and Anna received much joy in welcoming visitors young and old, from near and far, into their full house. Anna was an active member of the Catholic Church, and for decades enjoyed bowling with lifelong friends. Beloved wife of the late Robert E. Jeffers, Anna is survived by devoted children Barbara Walloch (Patrick), Robert Jeffers Jr. (Maureen), Michael Jeffers (Patricia), Kathleen Quick (Daniel), David Jeffers, and Christopher Jeffers (Courtney); brothers John Troy (Alice), Thomas Troy (Joyce), and William Troy (Helen); grandchildren Jennifer Allen (Nyamekey), Stephen Walloch, Daniel Walloch (Sarah), Amy Walloch, Brigid Cowdrey (Cara), Andrew Jeffers (Brooke), Molly Jeffers, Ellen Jeffers, Erin Stratton (Jack), Katherine Jeffers, Joshua Quick (Jennifer), Rebecca Quick, Troy Quick, and Matthew Jeffers; and nine great-grandchildren.
