Melinda McCormick-Jeffers Kitchens of Martinez, GA passed away Monday, October 23, 2017.

Graveside services will be held on Friday, October 27 at 11:00 AM at Westover Memorial Park.

She was a mother, a teacher, and a devout follower of God's will. As an English teacher, she touched many lives and when we were out with her, she would almost always run into a grateful student from the past and would be greeted with smiles and hugs. As a faithful servant of God, she was active for many years at Saint Andrew's Presbyterian Church; she worked on the newsletter for years, served as an Elder, and never missed a Sunday service if she could help it, even as her health began to decline.

She is preceded by Michael John Jeffers, a loving husband who passed before her; her brother, John Easterling McCormick IV; and her parents, John Easterling McCormick III and Lethia Jean McCormick; and is survived by David Jeffers and John-Paul Jeffers, her sons to whom she gave the world; by Ralph Kitchens, a husband with whom she did not get to spend enough time; by her sister, Anne McCormick Snider; and by her three loving puppies, Shadow, Sheridan, and Magnolia. She has left a cavern in our hearts that will never be filled, and will be missed for the rest of our days.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any who would want to send their condolences, instead make a small donation to Saint Andrew's Presbyterian Church (3551 Wheeler Road, Augusta, GA, 30909) on her behalf.

May God bless her and keep her until we meet again.
