After her teaching career she pursued a career in banking in St. Croix. Ephraem migrated with her family to Baytown, Texas where she was a homemaker. She cherished praising the Lord. She was always supportive and encouraging to her family, as well as, always sacrificing her needs for the best of her family. Most of her friends knew her as “Prim”. Ephraem had a love for music, playing Bingo, and cooking. She enjoyed coming up with different healthy meal ideas. Ephraem was an active member of Holy Family Catholic Church in Baytown where she was a member of the Alter Society and the Daily Mass Crew.
