  • This is T! I’m one of grandma Effie’s great grandsons. Oh what love she shows. I’m so grateful and proud to be part of this legacy!

    We are so sorry to hear about Mrs. Effie passing away. She was a special lady with a lovely daughter and good friend Brenda that I’m sure welcomed her mom with open arms. Much love and many sweet thoughts to the family. Ron and Sue Smith Stott

  • I was privileged to be a best friend to Effie’s daughter. Brenda. The Maready family was always loving and kind to me. I have kept in touch with Effie often since Brenda’s death. The world is a sadder place without Brenda and now her Mom.

  • My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I wish that I could be there to be with you. We always enjoyed having family visit in Newport News, VA and I remember how much Effie enjoyed going to Buckroe Beach and to country music shows in Williamsburg. I am so glad that we got a chance to visit with her a few years ago when we traveled to Arizona for vacation. I have many fond memories of times spent with my sister-in-law Effie and will miss her!

  • Thinking of all of Brenda’s family in the loss of her Mother. May all of you find comfort in your wonderful memories. (Class of 1964 Wallace-Rose Hill)

  • Love, love, love this lady! She was like a mom to me . She and my father-in-law, Ken, taught me how to can fruits and veggies. Spent many holidays, fishing trips and good times with her. She is the reason I love peanut butter and banana sandwiches and so much more. May her family be blessed with the comforter. Good bye Grandma Effie , til we meet again.

  • Carolyn Tanner Beckner

    I was a classmate of Brenda’s and knew the family well. We were frequent shoppers at her daddy’s grocery store.
    I am so sorry for you losses and hope God give you strength SYMPATHY, Carolyn and The Tanner Family
