Date: Friday, January 26, 2018
Time: 2:00 PM
Location: Lindsey Funeral Home
Carrie Jeffries, of Wooster, died with family by her side. Hailing from Loudonville, Ohio, she was the daughter of Bill and Dora Ebert and a graduate of Loudonville High School.
During World War II, Carrie was among the women illustrated by Rosie the Riveter, serving her country’s war effort at a local factory and contributing to early efforts for advancing women in the workplace—an echo of her determined will and spirit throughout her life.
She met and married Dick Jeffries in the 1940’s living locally, then moving west for careers and life together. Eventually their Ohio roots and family drew them back to northeast Ohio where they shared a simple life together, enjoying a happy marriage. Even after Dick’s death, to Carrie, he remained always “my guy.”
Carrie was a member of Eastern Star and a lifelong Lutheran. Family and friends near and far will miss her, folks who will continue to celebrate her spunky personality and who were strengthened by her deep love and loyalty.
