July 22, 2009 Renee, I receive the DC Advocate by mail and read your mother's obituary. When I visit Sturgeon Bay, I think of you, your mom, and family as I ride past your old residence on Quincy. Your mother was always very gracious and welcoming with me and your friends. And she encouraged your gift of music, how wonderful. I hope this finds you well and content with our 58 years! ps...I'm married to Mark Ranson from our class. We celebrated our 10 year anniverary last summer. Kathy (Ferris) Sorensen

My mother, Nanette Bohren, (Effie's sister-in-law) asked that I express her deepest condolences at the passing of your mother and grandmother. She and Derold thought the world of Effie and thought about her often. May you find peace in this time of sorrow. Meredith

Hi Pierre, Yvonne and of course Renee, I have very fond memories of Effie. We just had corn on the cob for dinner, but when Effie would have corn we had to have meat and potatoes with it. Renee, we always had so much fun playing as children. Are you still in music. You are so talented with the flute. I often would see her shopping and enjoyed keeping in touch with her. I have been thinking of her and wondering where she was. She lived a long life and touched many lives! God Bless all of you! Linda (Austad) Stuth

Please accept our heart felt condolences for Aunt Effie. She was always a delight and such a sweet lady. I remeber on my 5th Christmas, she knit a red with red and white striped ear muff and sent it to me. I still have it and always bring it out at Christmas. She shared Grandma Bohren's recipe for Johnny Cake and Strawberry Short Cake when we came to Wisconsin in 1996 with her brother Gene and my husband and myself. We went to see her when she was still living in her apartment in Sturgeon Bay. We had a good visit and she made lunch for us. She will live on in our memories especially when we reminisce about the days on the farm in Dale. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time. Regards, Rose and John Torbyn
