She later met Walter Mrozowich whom she married on October 24, 1953. Together they made their home and also farmed near the town of Fork River. While working on their mixed farm they also raised 4 children. On the farm she loved growing vegetable and flower gardens and cared for cattle, ducks, chickens and pigs.

She continued to grow a vegetable garden no matter where she was. She also dearly loved her flowers inside and outside of her home. While living in Dauphin Effie and Walter would take numerous bus trips with their friends to casinos in other provinces.
