Kitty Jeffery witnessed the Irish Civil War as the worst of times, lamenting the family divisions it left. A devoutly honest and kind soul, she never swore, loved her Irish roots, and enjoyed simple pleasures like reading, crosswords, and Bailey’s. Though widowed in 1986, she found joy in family lunches and cherished chocolates and flowers.

LongeviQuest is extending our deepest condolences to the bereaved family and friends of Mrs. Kitty Jeffery.
