Our memories go back to 1963, to Main Ave. when the Jeffrey family lived on Henry St. It goes back to all those years in Kaukauna when Jeff was known as THE FAMILY DOCTOR. Marlyn was in King's Daughters with Shirley. We became even better friends as all the Jeffrey children moved through the Kaukauna schools--exciting years! Then, when Jeff and LaVerne were married we kept running into each other--dances, schools, and in the audience at so many of the plays I directed. When they moved to Ouray we visited, because our daughter Erika lives in Durango. And we emailed for a long, long time after Marlyn and I moved to Eagle River. As was written, Jeff always wore a smile and listened--ah, yes he did. He listened when he made house calls (unheard of in other cities). He listened and asked questions when we talked about common interests. Most of all, he was a real friend and gentle-man. Although we haven't been in Kaukauna as residents for 10 years, we have thought of him also, especially through his final battle/journey.

We are so saddened at the passing of our beloved Dr. Jeffrey. He was an amazing doctor who delivered all of our children. He is without a doubt sitting right next to Jesus. Our sincere sympathy to all of you. Today our physician is sitting smiling down on all of you as he sits with the Greatest of all Physicians. To know Dr. Jeffrey was to never forget him and he will hold a place dear in our hearts forever. Warmest Regards, Tom and Elaine Van Gompel

Dear family of Dr. Jeff: We thank God for many years of service as a medical doctor for our community but I also thank God for Dr. Jeff's service on our Round House Manor Board. Dr. Jeff was truly interested in our community and its well being. This was one more expression of that concern that all parts of our community receive the best care possible. To quote him, "All of God's children need good housing." With you, we give him back to God from whence he came because our Lord is able where we are unable. May Dr. Jeff rest with all the saints in glory alongside of the One who was the Good Physician, one physician next to the Physician of all Eternity. We send our sincere sympathy. Round House Manor Board, Kaukauna The Rev. Harvey L. Kandler, Chair Dan Perronne, Administrator

Several years ago I was fortunate to work with Dr Jeffrey at Kaukauna Hospital. He was a joy to work with because he had great ears for listening, a large heart for caring and a gentle spirit to allowed sincere caring and compassion. He was a beautiful man and leaves a wonderful legacy. Many all the wonderful memories comfort you now.

We have such fond memories of Laverne & Jeff when we got to know them in Ouray. Through the First Presbyterian Church they were my daughter Katelyn's "adopted grandparents", a program to benefit children of the church whose grandparents lived far away. Their kindness to Katelyn was genuine and sweet. I believe she still has the purple teddy bear they gave her those many years ago. I still remember the Halloween we trudged up the steep "ski hill" in Ouray to trick-or-treat at their house. They were so surprised by our knock, the first trick-or-treaters they had ever had! We had caught them unprepared. But the next year...my goodness the candy! My daughters dressed up as Dorothy, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion were brought inside for lots of goodies and hugs. It would be hard o find finer people and we feel blessed to have had them in our lives, if but for a short time. Heaven is a happier place with Jeff and Laverne there.

Dr. Jeffrey delivered my son twenty-seven years ago. I can still see the tears in his eyes as my son came into this world. I shared his tears, tears of happiness. Thank you Dr. Jeffrey for being a part of my and my only sons world.
