Effie was the first employee hired at the Lions Prairie Manor in 1971 as business manager until her retirement in 1992.
She was an avid gardener and won several awards for her yard on LaVerendrye Crescent and on the rural property where she and Joe lived. After Joe’s passing she sold her rural property and moved into a condo on Kelly K St. where she resided until failing health made it necessary for her to take up residence at the Lions Prairie Manor in February 2020.
Effie was a life long member of the Ukrainian Catholic Church of Assumption.
At Effie’s request there will be no formal funeral.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Lions Prairie Manor Foundation. 24 – 9th St. SE, Portage la Prairie, MB R1N 3V4.
