Effie Louise Sarver, 86, of Eggleston Road, Pembroke, departed this life Monday morning, May 2, 2016 at Lewis-Gale Medical Center in Salem. Born in Maybrook on May 30, 1929, she was a daughter of the late James Luther Sr. and Virgie Mae Cumbee Breeding. Effie loved and trusted in the Lord; one of her many blessings was the love of her family.

Sarver, an infant son Barry Dean Sarver, and five brothers and three sisters. Effie was a Christian, a member of Lucas Memorial Christian Church in Maybrook and in later years attended Pembroke Christian Church.
She leaves to cherish her memory her devoted children Larry James Sarver and Penny Lynn Sarver of the home and Penny’s special friend Greg Martin of Narrows; her sister Eller K. Breeding of Pembroke; her sister-in-law China L Gray of Crawfordville, FL; a cousin who she thought of as a sister, Anna Sue Martin of Narrows; and a host of special nieces and nephews.
