She gave herself the name ‘Bam’ when her granddaughter, Michelle, was born because she wanted Michelle to call her father’s mother ‘Grandma’. Thinking of others was her way. ‘Bam’ as she was affectionally called by many was a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, cousin, niece, and friend. She touched many lives with her warm smile. She was known as a gentle spirit and a touch of humor. As a young adult she moved to Roanoke, VA where she met and married Quinton Jefferson. While in Roanoke, she was frequently sought after by neighbors, friends, and family to make them her famous yeast rolls. She was a faithful member of High Street Baptist Church for over 50 years. Her daughters relocated her to Winston-Salem, NC in 2008 and she became a member of Mount Zion Baptist Church. She was preceded in death by her mother, Annie Robinson; husband, Quinton Jefferson; sons, Quinton, Jr and Stevenson ‘Steve’, sister, Bertha Gray and great-granddaughters, Kelli and Katherine Whitaker.
