Fatima Grizelle Jefferson

October 28,1947 ~ December 16, 2023 (age 76)

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Fatima Grizelle Jefferson, a beloved spouse, mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, and true friend. Fatima's journey began on October 28, 1947, in Jersey City, New Jersey and she graced our lives with her warmth, kindness, and unwavering love until her peaceful departure on Saturday, December 16, 2023. Fatima was not just a matriarch; she was the heart and soul of our family. Her love knew no bounds, creating a tapestry of cherished memories that will forever be etched in our hearts. As a devoted spouse, Fatima exemplified the true meaning of partnership, standing by her loved ones through thick and thin. As a parent, her wisdom and love served as a guiding light, shaping the characters of her daughter, and leaving an indelible mark on their lives. Her role as a sister brought comfort and companionship, weaving the threads of family bonds even tighter. Fatima's legacy extends beyond generations, as she reveled in the joys of being a grandmother and great-grandmother. Her nurturing spirit and playful laughter created a home filled with warmth and love, leaving an enduring impact on those lucky enough to call her family. Beyond her familial roles, Fatima's friendship knew no bounds. Her ability to make others feel seen and heard created a vast network of friends who found solace and joy in her company. Her genuine smile and open heart welcomed all, leaving an imprint of kindness on the hearts of those she encountered. In her presence, laughter flowed freely, and her sense of humor and wisdom added a unique and unforgettable touch to gatherings. Fatima Grizelle Jefferson moved to Deltona, Florida in 1989 with her mother, father, daughter, sister, and brother where they began a longtime journey. She retired from Walt Disney World and was a Legacy Member of New Hope Baptist Church since 1993. There she served as the Financial Administrator; and served in the Trustee, Deaconess, and Season Saints Ministry. Fatima will be remembered for her unwavering love, her infectious spirit, her generosity, and the countless memories Fatima Grizelle Jefferson created with those who were fortunate enough to share her journey. As we say our goodbyes to this remarkable soul, let us remember Fatima Grizelle Jefferson not with sorrow, but with gratitude for the joy, love, and compassion she shared with us throughout her life.

Jefferson, sister Alberta Havaien and brother Robert Havaien, children Dawn Jefferson-Barnette, Quentina and Christopher Brown, grandchildren Anthony Barnette, Jamell Booker, Dontell Featherstone, Jazmine Barnes, Courtney Brown, and Akeelah Brown; and great-grandchildren Naivene Featherstone, Lawren Levy, Jamell Booker Jr., Jalaya Booker, and Xyaire Booker. who will continue to carry her legacy forward with love and cherished memories.
