July 17, 1952 – May 17, 2022

Delene Jefferies Kramer, of Noblesville, 69, went home to be with her heavenly father on Tuesday, May 17, 2022.

She was born July 17, 1952, to Milo and Betty (McDaniel) Jefferies in Marion, IN.

Ms. Kramer graduated from Marion High School in 1969. She enjoyed being an administrative assistant for various companies throughout her adult life up until her retirement in 2008.

Her love in life was her family. Ms. Kramer was proud of her two sons, Jared and Brett. She could be found at all her kid’s activities when they were younger helping as team mom, volunteering as president of the PTA and always being at the ball fields. Her joy came from her two grandchildren: Cameron and Katie. Ms. Kramer beamed with delight with every achievement and every story that involved her grandchildren. She also loved crafting; she enjoyed crocheting, sewing, small craft projects and cooking.

Survivors include her son Jared Kramer of Westfield; two sisters Debbie (Larry) Thompson of Matthews and Deah Ann (Russ) Kinder of LaFontaine; sister-in-law Janie Jefferies of Fairmount; daughter-in-law Lisa Kramer of Overland Park, KS; two stepchildren Darrell (Toyua) Kramer of Austin, TX and Whitney (Robbie) Hopkins of Ochlocknee, GA; two grandchildren Cameron and Katie Kramer of Noblesville; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her son Brett Kramer; parents Milo and Betty Jefferies of Marion; brother Milo (Dewey) Jefferies Jr. of Fairmount; sister Daena Shaffer of Gas City; and stepson Eric Kramer of Thomasville, GA.
