Marguerite Isabella Felice Jeffries, 74, died at home after a long illness on December 5, 2020.
She was born on August 7, 1946 in the Bronx, New York to Margaret Demarest Felice and Ralph Alexander Felice. She was an only child and raised in Whitestone and College Point, Queens, New York and went to Catholic grade and high school. She graduated from St. John’s University in Jamaica, New York with a degree in Spanish and Secondary Education. Throughout her life she spoke excellent Spanish, something most people never knew.
Upon graduation from college she started working for American Airlines in Manhattan as a reservation’s supervisor. She worked there until she married Francis (Fran) Jeffries on June 29, 1969. In College Point, NY. Since Fran was on US Navy active duty and stationed in Monterey, California she immediately moved there. In August 1969 they moved to San Angelo, Texas when Fran received another assignment. They stayed there until August 1971 when Fran was transferred to Ft. Meade, Maryland. Their final move was to Poolesville, Maryland in 1975.
Fran and Marguerite have two children, Michael Jeffries age 49 who lives in Odenton, MD and Kathryn Jeffries Quilligan age 40 who lives in Cary, NC. She is survived by Michael and his wife Laurie and their three children: Grace Jeffries (20), Caiden Jeffries (9), and Charlie Kate Jeffries (5) and Kathryn Quilligan and her husband Mike and their daughter Lois Felice Quilligan (5).
Marguerite loved to make floral arrangements and worked for a couple of local florists. She was active in Our Lady of the Presentation Catholic Church. She and Fran had many dogs over the years and at one time had four dogs at the same time. If you have some spare change she would encourage you to make a donation in her name to the Humane Society of the United States. She was an avid Yankee fan and enjoyed a couple of trips to Cooperstown to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame. We imagine she is now with all her dogs, especially Sandy, waiting for the Yankee 2021 season to begin.
