We are deeply saddened by the loss of our sweet Aunt Effie. She was so warm, kind, and thoughtful. She always gave of herself to all those around her. We miss her already but will go forward holding onto the happy times we shared with her. With all our love, Chris and Susie.

Dear Chris
Our deepest sympathy to you and your family for the loss of your dear mother. The mother is usually the pillar of the family. We are with you.

It was with great sadness that I heard about Effie's passing. She was my special next door neighbour. Her smile was catching and she always had food for me to sample. What a lovely woman. She worried more about Angelo than she did herself. She is now in no pain or worry and will be around us always. My sincere condolences to Angelo and the family.
