Ms Effie was a great person, nurse, correctional officer, and partner. I worked with her for many years but I remember her from when I was young also. My mother and her were friends and her son and I were friends. She is and always will be in my thoughts along with her family

Miss Effie rocked! She was genuine, loyal, loving, and FUN. We worked together, traveled together, laughed and cried together. We spent many weekends traveling to stay and party with friends and family. She was one strong woman who lived life on her terms. Nothing but love and respect for Miss Effie. She’ll be so much missed by us all. You worked so hard all your life, now, you rest. So you Rest In Peace, you’ve earned it.
