Donald Glenn Jeffres, born in Midwest, Wyo., on March 26, 1931, to Glee Fay Edwards and Glenn Guy Jeffres, passed away in Albuquerque, N.M. on Jan. 6, 2009.

Don grew up in Cheyenne, Wyo., alongside and as a part of the “W.D.” William Darvin and Nettie Fox Family.

He met and married Lois Anderson of Kremmling, in 1951; daughter of Clerance Corwin and Lois Anderson.

They moved to New Mexico shortly thereafter and found their new home in Los Lunas in 1961. They raised their three children there.

Don was preceded in death by his wife Lois, in 1985 after 34 years of marriage; and by both parents Glee Fay and Glenn Guy Jeffres.

He is survived by his three children; his son, Guy C. Jeffres and wife Johnneye of Moriarty, N.M.; and twin daughters, Sally K. Sanchez and husband Joe of Grants, and Sonya K. Nichols of Placitas, all of New Mexico.

He is also survived by nine grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren along with many other beloved family members, very dear friends in the RV community and the friends of Bill W.

Arrangements and cremation were handled by Direct Funeral Services in Albuquerque.

At Donald’s request there were no services. His ashes will be spread to rest with those of his wife Lois.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to Roberta’s Place (Domestic Violence Shelter) P.O. Box 7304 Grants, NM 87020.
