Effie owned and operated D&E‘S restaurant in Deerfield for a number of years until her retirement. Effie was an avid Elvis Presley fan. She enjoyed watching the Pittsburgh Steelers, loved the color purple and adored her Chihuahuas Ellie and Mickey. She and Denzil loved to dance, and were the light of any party as they danced so well together. Her absolute favorite roles however, were that of wife, mother, and grandmother. Besides her husband, children, and siblings, her legacy lives on through her 19 grandchildren and numerous great and great-great grandchildren. Effie was adored by her family and will be greatly missed.
