Margaret Jeffries

Company partner

A Mass of Christian burial for Margaret B. Jeffries, retired partner in a Cockeysville railroad equipment supply company, will be offered at 11 a.m. today at St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church, 101 Church Lane, Cockeysville.

Mrs. Jeffries, who had lived in Cockeysville for 8 1/2 years, died Thursday at the Cardinal Shehan Center of pneumonia. She was 91.

In the early 1920s, after she graduated at age 16 from Eastern High School in Baltimore, the former Margaret Busch began working for the B&O; Railroad Co., where she met W. E. "Ed" Jeffries, a manufacturer's agent specializing in railroad supplies.

They were married in 1923.

She subsequently left the B&O; job to raise her three children. The couple lived in Mount Washington from 1925 until Mr. Jeffries' death in 1963.

Several years after her husband's death, Mrs. Jeffries became a partner with her son, William E. "Bud" Jeffries, in the Sulgrave Co. in Cockeysville, which supplied railroad equipment to the Penn Central and B&O; railroad companies. She retired in the mid-1980s.

She enjoyed playing bridge and raising money for the March of Dimes. Her work for the March of Dimes was inspired by that organization's contributions to curing her two daughters of polio in the 1950s.

In addition to her son, she is survived by two daughters, Peggy Jeffries of Ellicott City, and Betty Carver of Bel Air; eight grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.

He then took a position as associate commissioner and chief engineer for the Massachusetts Department of Public Works. He retired from that position last spring.

Mr. Turner enjoyed gardening, reading and listening to music by Duke Ellington. He spent about half of each of his later years at his summer home in Harwich, Mass., and the other half in Millers.

Born in Campbellsville, Ky., Mr. Turner graduated from the University of Kentucky in Lexington with a bachelor's degree in civil engineering.

He is survived by his wife, Helen R. Turner; four sons, George R. Turner III and Christopher M. Turner, both of Arlington, Va., Robert B. Turner of Hampstead and Benjamin R.
