Second Funeral for Norene Jeffs

Colorado City - A mound of dirt and small placard mark Norene Jeffs' simple grave, next to that of Rulon Jeffs, her husband. Friends and family members of Norene Jeffs gathered in the Colorado City cemetery to remember this plural wife, who had been buried the previous week in a secret funeral by members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS). Jeffs, who had been "sealed" to the previous FLDS prophet Rulon Jeffs (Warren Jeffs' father), was buried even before family members exiled from the secretive church were notified of her death. 7.09.2007
