She was born Oct. 5, 1914, in Rush County, the daughter of Emmanuel and Emma (Erb) Sell. On July 24, 1938, she married August "Lefty" Brack at Bazine. Early on they farmed in Barton County, later moving to Great Bend in 1946. This is where she resided until June 2007, when she moved to Manhattan.
Effie was preceded in death by her husband in December of 1982. Also preceeding her were her parents, an infant daughter, her brother, Roy Sell, and a son-in-law, George Eads. She is survived by two daughters, Karen Foltmer of Fort Worth, Texas, and Phyllis Eads of Manhattan; four grandchildren, Kandy McCorkle of Fort Worth, Michael Foltmer of Keller, Texas, Scott Eads and wife Crickett of Winfield and Kristi Cornejo and husband Mathew of Manhattan; a step-granddaughter, Jennifer Swafford and husband Jamie of Herington; three great-grandchildren, Dominika Cornejo, Diego Cornejo and Darianna Cornejo, all of Manhattan; a step-great-grandson, Lincoln Swafford of Herington; and two sisters, Freda Schwartz of Scottsdale, Ariz., and Clara Finkenbinder of Thornton, Colo.
