Stella Jefferies Notice


Stella Esther Jefferies, beloved wife of Wesley Jefferies and loving mother of Dawn Jefferies Owczarski and the late Wesley McKinley Jefferies Jr. passed away Friday at Sinai Hospital with her family by her side following her second battle with breast cancer. Born in Roxboro, NC in 1947, the third of nine children to the late Hassell and Dixie Farrish, Stella moved to Baltimore where she met and later married Wesley, her husband of 50 years. She retired in 2002 after 35 years with Becton Dickenson following her first fight with breast cancer. Stella enjoyed crafts, especially sewing, as she was a beautiful seamstress. She bowled five days a week alongside her husband and enjoyed walking, (she was a member of the White Marsh Mall Walkers) traveling, (especially to casinos), taking pictures of her two grandchildren and hosting family and friends for large but casual Thanksgiving dinners. In addition to her husband and daughter, she is survived by her son-in-law Mark Owczarski and grandchildren, McKinley and Noah; six sisters and two brothers, Barbara Townes, Fannie Yvonne Fields, Dixie Colleen Goburn, Hasseline Crowder, Hassell Farrish Jr., Nancy Bingman, Spencer Farrish and Betty Farrish; a number of nieces and nephews and friends. The family will receive friends on Tuesday, November 15 from 5-8 pm at Vaughn Greene Funeral Services located at 4905 York Road Baltimore, MD 21212. The family will receive friends on Wednesday, November 16 at 10 am followed by her funeral at 10:30 am at Vaughn Greene East Chapel located at 4905 York Road Baltimore, MD 21212. The interment will be held at Arbutus Memorial Park at 1101 Sulphur Spring Road Arbutus, MD at 1:00 pm where Stella will be laid to rest next to her son.
