“Effie was my ‘Grandma in Jenison’, although in reality she was my Great Grandma. I remember going to her house and picking grapes by the back fence and eating them until we got a stomach ache. They were Concord grapes with big seeds. The railroad tracks ran across the back of her house. She had a patch of mint growing by her back door. Her bed was so high, you needed a step stool to climb into it. She made the best date pinwheel cookies (click link for recipe) and gave them to the families at Christmas-time.” ~ Susan Jager Straw
