Funeral service for Mrs. Earnestine Quin Brown will be 11 a.m., Monday, February 28, 2022, at Riverwood Family with interment in the Riverwood Memorial Park. Visitation is from 10 a.m. until the time of the service on Monday.

Mrs. Earnestine was escorted by the angels into her eternal home early Tuesday morning, February 23, 2022. Her earthly life began February 5, 1927, born to Harry and Clara Quin, in the Arlington Community of Lincoln County, MS. Her life was a testament to living devoted and consistent for the Lord Jesus and the proof was in her gregarious personality. She had a quick wit and would enjoy an occasional prank. She found it easy to converse with anyone. She could relate to the very young as well as the senior adult and everyone in between. She never met a stranger and held every friend close to her heart. Mrs. Earnestine never wasted a long line in Wal-Mart checkout, she would engage in conversation with someone close by. She touched innumerable lives, but her greatest treasures were her husband and daughters, and the beautiful grandchildren and great-grandchildren that were given to them. Her legacy lives on in her daughters. Mrs. Earnestine lived 95 years and experienced many changes during those years. One thing always remained the same, her love for the Savior, her family, and her faith family.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Truitt Brown and her parents; brothers, Harry Clayton Quin Jr. and Earl Oulin Quin; and sisters, Ruth Hazel Quin Huckabee, Eva Hannah Quin Huckabee, Alene Mildred Quin Lingle.
