Effie Myrtle Fuller, daughter of George H. and Sarah Fuller, was born February 1, 1884, at Fairbanks, Indiana and departed this life from the Christian Parsonage, Farmington Missouri, on August 22, 1949, at the age of 65 years, 6 months 21 days.
She spent her girlhood days in a farm home near Fairbanks, Indiana, and graduated from the Fairbanks High School, and also from Central Normal
College, Danville, Indiana. She then taught school three years.
While teaching she became acquainted with Chauncey R. Piety, who was also a teacher, and they were united in marriage August 10, 1908, at her parents' home, Dr. O.B. Whitaker, President of Union Christian College officiating. To this union one son and four daughters were born, all of whom are living.
In her teen years she became a Christian, uniting with the Church of Christ; and after her marriage she transferred her membership to the Christian church with her husband. She was loyal to her church and unwavering in her faith to the end. When her health was good she taught in the Bible School and worked in the women's auxiliaries. She maintained her membership in the Eastern Star and Rebekahs and enjoyed the fellowship of these orders.
Mrs. Piety is survived by her husband. Pastor Chauncey R. Piety; her son, Harl O. Piety of Corpus Christi, Texas; four daughters, Mrs. J. Claude Catron, Gate City, Va.; Mrs. I.M. Seibert, Guthrie Center, Iowa; Mrs. Walter Miles, Jr., Low Point, Ill., and Miss Pauline Piety of Peoria, Ill.; six grandsons and five granddaughters; also three brothers, Elwood Fuller, Sullivan, Indiana, Ira Fuller, Prairie Creek, Indiana, and Scott B. Fuller, of Fairbanks, Indiana.
Life for her was joy in service,
Love for God and home and friends;
and such loyalities in living
Build a life that never ends.
