W. Tefft

W. Janet Tefft, beloved citizen of Beacon, NY, lost her battle to stage four lung cancer in the early morning of Friday, March 10, 2017.

Janet, 78, was born and raised in Leicester, England, and later moved to America to begin her life.

She is survived by her Husband Harold, her sons Mark and Michael, and four grandchildren; Timmy, Courtney, Nicholas and William.

In this time of grief, we have chosen not to flounder in sorrow, but to reflect on and cherish the memories of our dearest wife, mother, grandmother and friend.

Services will not be held in the States; there will be an honoring of Janet’s memorial, with immediate family in Leicester, per her wishes. In lieu of flowers, Janet requested that you make a donation to Loros, a hospice center in Leicester, at www.loros.co.uk.

Arrangements are under the direction of Jarett D. Quick at Libby Funeral Home, Inc. 55 Teller Ave. Beacon, NY 12508 (845) 831-0179
