Sally A. Jeffrey, 76, passed away peacefully at home in her sleep on Tax Day, April 18, 2023.
Sally was born in Billings, MT, on December 27, 1946, to Glen and Annaruth Thompson. She was the oldest of four girls. Sally grew up in Billings and graduated from Billings West in 1965. She attended Eastern Montana College (MSU, Billings). In 1966, Sally married Glenn Jeffrey in Cody, Wyoming. Sally and Glenn lived in Great Falls, raising their two children, Jona and Glenn, III.
Sally loved preparing income taxes, but more importantly, Sally loved each of her clients. She prepared taxes for over 50 years. Each tax season, she looked forward to seeing her clients and helping them get their taxes filed. Sally overcame her fear of computers and began electronically filing taxes to keep up with the competition.
In December of 2020, Sally spent several days in the hospital with covid. You'd never know she had been sick because she turned right around and was preparing taxes within days of recouping. Sally battled breast cancer in 2021, having a mastectomy in October and finishing radiation treatments the week before Christmas. In January 2022, Sally jumped into the next tax season, not slowing down or ever complaining. Often, she said she would work until it wasn't possible. That statement couldn't be more true as she passed away on Tax Day.
Loved ones that preceded Sally in death are her parents, two sisters, Judy and Bev; and her son, Glenn. Survivors include Sally's husband of over 56 years, Glenn; her daughter, Jona (Tom), a sister, Bonny, her grandchildren Joe, Ben, Elyssa, Rennick, Luke and a great grandchild, Joe Jr.
Per Sally's request, there will be no services. In lieu of flowers, consider donating to save animals, which was a passion of Sally's (polar bears, pandas, elephants, butterflies & bees, local animal shelters, etc). Sally, Mom, Gramma, you will be dearly missed.
