Jessye Elizabeth Stubblefield Hefner, age 74, of Garwood, passed away on February 23, 2020 in Sugarland, Texas. She was born to Roy Marberry and Annabel (Maroney) Stubblefield on August 20, 1945 in Alameda, California. She was married to Billy Hefner on May 16, 1968.
Jessye enjoyed Christmas, friends and reading her bible. Her hobbies included cooking, antiquing and slot machines. Her favorite things were family and her dogs.
Jessye had a passion for youth and served for many years as a Sunday school teacher as well as working with youth in a group called 'Christians on Broadway'. She loved helping others and was continually finding ways to do this, even from home. She was a fantastic cook, and family loved to gather in her kitchen to eat her delicious food. Traveling yearly to Colorado and Las Vegas were part of her family traditions. During her travels, she enjoyed playing slot machines, deer hunting and shopping for antiques. Her quiet manner of living provided a strong role model for many. Her granddaughter will continue to live her legacy as her namesake and remember all that she taught her. Mostly, she loved her family and was completely passionate about each member.
