My heart is saddened at the passing of this sweet lady that was loved by so many. She is now rejoicing in heaven with loved ones that have been awaiting her arrival. Sending love and prayers for comfort to all her family and friends.
We were saddened to hear of Sister Earnesteen’s passing. She would come to Mount Zion Church of God where we pastor during revivals and sing. We loved to hear her and Sister Pruitt sing. Sister Earnesteen will be missed by many. ♥️
