In loving memory of Esther Marie Jefferson
6.13.1932- 10.07.2019

Esther Marie (Glasker) Jefferson, 87, found rest in our Lord on October 7, 2019. Services will be 10 AM Saturday, October 12th at OakCrest Funeral Home.

Marie, endearingly known as “Mama J” and “Ganny”, was born June 13, 1932 in Mart, TX to R.S. Glasker and Mary Lee. She moved to Petersburg, TX in the 1950’s to raise her family. She returned to Waco in 1988 where she lived out the remainder of her years surrounded by family and friends
Marie was hardworking, a woman of great faith, devoted to loving others and praising God. She loved her children, grandchildren, siblings and many friends. She was a friend to everyone she met and within minutes was endeared as “Mama J” to friends, acquaintances and neighbors. She brought joy to all who knew her and could brighten up a room with her laugh. Marie was a “praying Mama” and not one to mince her words, she spoke truth from a place of love and great faith, a trait she has instilled in her children and grandchildren.

Marie is preceded in death by her parents R.S. Glasker, Mary Lee; brothers, George Lee and Bobby Brown; husband, David Lee Jefferson; children, Elizabeth, Larry, Edward and Vivian; great-grandson, Jace Jefferson and great-granddaughter Natalie Jefferson.

Marie is survived by her loving sister, Willie Bea Glasker of Waco; her devoted children, Vic (Jean) Glasker of Waco, Emmett Jefferson of Lubbock; Fred (Karla) Jefferson of Lewisville; Mary (Robert) Borowiec of Temple; David Jefferson of Waco; Monte (Curtis) Cook of Waco; Jennifer Jefferson of Waco. Adoring grandchildren, Camille, Victor, Kenneth, Victoria, Tony, VicPatrick, Jason, Alicia, Brandon, Tiffany, Gregory, Rochelle, Gavin, Chelsea and Caitlyn. She is also survived by 17 great-grandchildren and 12 great-great-grandchildren as well as many adoring nieces and nephews and a host of friends.

Marie left her fingerprint on this world and the heart of everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. Mama/Ganny will be dearly missed. Rest in Heaven!
