Obituary

Mary L. Jefferson was born April 17, 1943
in Crenshaw, MS to the parents of the late
Mrs. Mamie Smith Roberson and Mr. Eli
Smith.

Mary moved to Chicago in 1960 with her
husband, the late Sam H. Jefferson Jr.
Mary was a member of Lawndale
Missionary Baptist Church, where she
served on the Usher Board. She worked at
Lowery Electronics for 20 years and
Concord Nursing Home. She was affectionately
called Mrs. Mary by all that knew her.

Mrs. Mary is preceded in death by: Raynard Jefferson (son); Jeffery Jones
(son-in-law), and Bridgett Jefferson (daughter-in-law).

Mary leaves behind three sisters and one brother, Georgia Anderson, Edith R.
Hugghis (Hue), Lillie R. Hackney (Robert) and Milton R. Roberson Jr.

Mary also leaves to cherish her memories: Two children, Angie M. Townsend
Jones and Sammie T. Jefferson; her lifelong partner of 39 years, Jessie Smith
Sr; three bonus daughters, Diane Smith, Michelle Smith and Tian Smith; five
grandchildren and three great grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews,
other relatives and friends.


-God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be so he put his arm
around you and whispered. "Come to Me." With tearful eyes we watched you,
and saw you pass away and although we love you dearly we could not make you
stay. You told me it would be all right, but I feel that isn’t true. The only thing to
make this better Is if I was there with you. I know this isn't possible. But it's hard
to think it so. I know you’re now not suffering, but I hate to see you go. On
Monday, a golden heart stopped beating hard working hands were put to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best. We love you Granny,
Your Grandkids
