Ruth Jeffries Obituary
RUTH JEFFRIES
On 06/07/2017, Ruth Jeffries went to be with her savior at the age of 80 years, a few weeks after being diagnosed with cancer. Ruth showed the grace and courage facing death as she did in her everyday life.
A native of Georgia, Ruth graduated from McEachern High School in Powder Springs and later earned her Bachelor's Degree at Tift College. Shortly after in 1963, she was one of the first volunteers to serve in the U.S. Peace Corps. She married fellow Peace Corps volunteer Dwayne Jeffries in 1965 and they eventually settled in California where they raised their 3 daughters. Ruth worked as a Registered Nurse at Grossmont Hospital (La Mesa, CA) in the Women's Surgical Unit for 17 years before retiring to enjoy her grandchildren. Ruth loved being a part of her church, participating in Gideon's International Auxiliary, traveling the world and spending time with her friends on the golf course.
Ruth will be lovingly remembered by her three daughters Jackie Thompson, Rachel Fuller and Rita Jeffries; her sons-in-law Mike Fuller and Tom Thompson; her grandchildren Makenna Fuller, Luke Thompson, Callie Fuller, Dylan Thompson and Elliana Fuller; her sisters Nancy Bermudes, Phoebe McGhee, Nan Nesbitt and Gail Hawkins.
A celebration of Ruth's life will be held on Saturday, June 17, at 2:00 pm at Venture Christian Church on 40515 California Oaks Road, Murrieta.
