Moynell Tucker

Moynell began a small bookkeeping operation on the back porch of her Effingham home well over 50 years ago. As the story goes, her daughters would occasionally be found napping next to her desk as she worked into the night.

Moynell’s first expansion took her to the basement of her home where she added a couple of employees. Some years later, she purchased a small office on Fayette Ave. in downtown Effingham. As family members and staff joined the firm, she expanded to a new location on Keller Drive in Effingham.

The expansion continued in 1999 when Moynell and her family purchased a 10,000 square foot office building that houses the accounting firm, as well as several other organizations. She was a true matriarch and we still miss her today.
