Doris Ballard Jeffries Going Home to be with her family and the Lord of her faith: Jesus.

Yes sad, but at the same time: Good and Very Good, she's off to see the King.Doris Ballard Jeffries, will be over yonder waiting for her bestest friend and husband Elder A.J. Jeffries, loving daughter Dr. Kirsten Jeffries Grant, son-in-law Vaughn and three grands Judah, Naja and Kalid. Her BFF's Mary, Maryann and Olga.Her mother Foley Knox, brother Homer are up there waiting to greet her. Mother-in-law Margie, and sister-in-law Marian and a host of uncles and aunts just a waiting, she has a royal born-again saved family.

Left behind are many aunts-in-laws, first cousins, second cousins in Wildwood and Whitesville, N.J. Philadelphia, Pa., and in Delaware. Born in Chester, Pa., on May 19, 1929, lived in NYC and New Rochelle, NY before moving to Florence, SC in 2005. Left behind in these cities are a bunch of very loving friends. She had a very infectious smile for everyone, which never seemed to go away.

She was deeply and sincerely loved by all who came in contact with her. She graduated from Temple University, with degree in business management. From 1963 through 1993 she was employed at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. She was the first woman and lady of color to receive a supervisory position at the Port Authority. Her final years started with the building of the World Trade Centers and ended in 1993. Her job had offered her the pleasure to travel to seventeen different countries, which included China.

Her and her husband also traveled to 44 of the 50 states here, including Alaska. Leaving behind is her great love for her Pastor Steve McCartt, his wife Amy and their children. Missing will be her endearing love of fellowship with her many Sisters and Brothers in the Lord throughout Florence and vicinity, especially at Family Worship Center at 3215 Cashua Dr., Florence, S.C.
