Ms. Effie L. Williams - R., arrived in Trenton, TN on March 1, 1945 for the casting call of a lifetime. She was the daughter of Mr. Conry E. Williams, Sr. and Mrs. Ruth V. Williams.
Effie's road to stardom began in St. Louis, MO where she received her formal education in the public school system. In her teenage years, the tour of life led her to Indianapolis, IN until taking her final bow.
God shined the ultimate spotlight on Effie when she professed a hope in Christ and was baptized at an early age. She later became a member of Eastern Star Church until curtain call.
Effie's talents allowed her many roles beginning in 1968 when she received her first honor as a Cosmetologist. She went on to shine at Chrysler Motor Company until they moved from Indy. Her second honor soon followed when she earned her Certified Nursing Assistance license and rounded out her genre as a licensed Barber.
Effie's love for her family and friends allowed her to show once again just why she deserved an Academy Award as an excellent cook. She took great pride in cooking and was known for her delicious homemade cornbread dressing and award winning potato salad!
