JEFFREY, Florence September 19, 1919 – January 9, 2017 Our beautiful mother passed away quietly with dignity of spirit and in the love of her family. Florence (neé BROWN) was predeceased by her husband Lyle Elmo Jeffrey, owner and CEO of the former Jeffrey Luggage in Arnprior and Frontier Ranch Camp. She was also predeceased by her sons Bruce Allan and Grant Reid, her grandson Jonathan Glenn "Jay," and 9 of her 11 brothers and sisters. Florence leaves her remaining sons David (Katherine), Glenn (Linda), Dale (Trish), and her daughter Jill, plus 15 grandchildren and 19 great- grandchildren, her sister Lois Baskin (late Bert) and brother Melvin Brown (Edith). A multitude of friends and the wider community will remember her solid faith in God, leadership in Christian Women's Club, lifetime ministry with her husband through The Gideons International and 26 years as co- director at Frontier Ranch Children's Camp near White Lake. Florence's faith in Jesus Christ gave her the strength to receive blessing and loss with grace. It also inspired her purpose, decisions, relationships, love of nature, writing and creativity. We wish to thank those who provided our mother's care with integrity, kindness, and respect.
