On Monday, March 9, 2020, Jeanette A. LeFevre was touched by an angel and called to her resting place. Jeanette was born on September 12, 1938 in Virginia. She grew up on the southside of Albany. As a child Jeanette spent time retrieving vegetables from her parents’ garden, going to church, and cooking. She enjoyed spending time with her cousins too, especially since she was an only child. Her favorite color was purple.

Jeanette was married to the late Donald LeFevre Sr. and created a family of five. They lived in Albany and Rotterdam, New York.

Jeanette was a faithful member of Welcome Chapel Missionary Baptist Church. She served the church as a church clerk, a missionary, a chairman of the trustee board, and was always willing to serve in any capacity.
Jeanette was a founding member of Capital District Assembly No. 60, which first started in 1974. She was a member for 46 years. Jeanette was also a Past Loyal Lady Ruler with the Order of the Golden Circle. She was referred to as PLLR Jeanette LeFevre. She served as a treasurer until she moved to New Jersey.
She worked at Albany Public Market, Shoprite, and Walmart. She was well known for her kind demeanor, giving heart, and love for people. The word that described her best is: Giving!

On a nice day, Jeanette could often be found soaking up the sun, or as she called it “sitting on the dock of the bay,” with her sidekick, Zack. Sometimes, she liked to play solitaire. She was great at crocheting. Her green thumb resulted in the sprouting of numerous plants. In the evening, Jeanette enjoyed watching television shows such as Blue Bloods, General Hospital, Say Yes to the Dress, and Love and Hip Hop.

Jeanette touched so many lives during her time here on earth. What she loved the most was God and her Family. During her talks with the Lord, Jeanette often said: “Thank ya! Thank ya! Thank ya!” Although we will miss her dearly, we know that she has earned her wings and can rest easy now.

Those left to cherish her memory are: her children, Melinda Faulkner (Ronald), Rodney LeFevre (Kathy), Sheila Diggs (William, Sr.); a host of grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren. She joins in heaven: the late Donald LeFevre Sr., Donald LeFevre Jr., Monique Bryant (Alvin), Jessica LeFevre, Demetri Galbreath, and Jaden Weekes.

To meet Jeanette was to simply fall in love with her.
