She graduated from San Augustine High School in 1948 and was a retired booth manager for Weingarten’s in Nederland/Port Arthur for many years.

She then worked and retired from N.I.S.D. after 10 years as a school bus aid.

Earnestine gave back to her community through hours of service with the Order of the Eastern Star, Veterans of Foreign Wars Ladies Auxiliary, and American Legion Auxiliary.

Earnestine loved to paint; taking care of her flowers as she was known to have a “green thumb,” she did ceramics and loved jigsaw puzzles.

Earnestine liked going to casinos, most often winning at Delta Downs or Coushatta in Louisiana, especially in her later years with her nephew, James.

She was also an avid reader and collected blue bonnets which she kept in her front yard at her house.
