Rosemary Jeffries,79, passed away at home surrounded by her loving family, after a short battle with pancreatic cancer, on November 23, 2017. She was born on July 20, 1938, and was a long-time resident of Chariton, Iowa. She worked in the accounting department of HyVee for 23 years. In 2002, Rosemary moved to Johnston where she shared her home with her daughter, Deb and dog, Cody. She enjoyed watching basketball and the food channel in her spare time. During her short illness, she received professional nursing care from her daughter, Deb, until her passing.
