Effie was born and grew up in Dundee, Ohio where she lived with her parents. She accepted Christ as her personal Savior and was baptized September 16, 1956 into the Zion Mennonite Church. She served Christ faithfully until her death.

On March 23, 1968 Effie married Joe Weirich and they began their life together in Holmes County, OH. Throughout their married life, they opened their home to many youth.

She was loved by all, especially her grandchildren, who looked forward to her gifts. Her hobbies were taking care of her flowerbeds, word games and scrapbooking, compiling photo albums of her grandchildren.

As a family, we will continue to remember and benefit from her example of faithfulness and service to God and fellow men. We know she would desire the salvation of each of our souls and that we be prepared to meet Him in Glory.

We are grateful for all the help and support we have felt from the La Monte Congregation, many friends and family, the medical professionals and others who blessed our mother’s life during her illness before death.
