Delleva Carlotta (Riley) Jeffers

August 15, 1947 ~ December 28, 2021 (age 74)



Delleva Carlotta Riley Jeffers, 74 of Graham went to be with the Lord on December 28, 2021, at her home surrounded by family. 

Delleva was born in Orange County on August 15, 1947, the daughter of the late Walter Riley and Annie Foust Riley. She was a cook for 30 years at Dips Country Kitchen and loved to cook for her family. Della was a member of Mt. Moriah Baptist Church and was an outgoing person who enjoyed bingo, solitare, being around her friends and family and especially loved her grandchildren. She had a great time when she would get together with her sister.

God looked around his garden and found an empty place, He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
God’s Garden must be beautiful He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering He knew you were in pain. He knew that you would never Get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb. So, he closed your weary eyelids and whispered, ‘Peace be thine’. It broke our hearts to lose you But you didn’t go alone, for part of us went with you The day God called you home.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by five brothers, Charlie Riley, Benjamin Riley, Eddie Riley, Barry Riley and Tommy Riley as well as two sisters, Cathy Dixon and Ruby Pair. 

Left to cherish her memory are two daughters, Ava Riley-Woods (Melvin) and Lonnetta Riley; a sister, Romola Evans; four grandchildren, Pamela Riley, James Riley, Ebony Riley and Tiffany Riley; thirteen great grandchildren; one great great grandchild; a brother in law Fred Dixon; two uncles, Jasper Foust and Joe Johnson as well as two aunts, Shirley Riley and Eloise Riley and a host of cousins, family members and friends.
