She was born February 16, 1933, to the late Earnest Vaughan and Ruth Smith Vaughan.

Mrs. Earnestine’s first job was working at Edge Sales Company as a bookkeeper and later worked for several years at Stahl Urban.

In her younger years, she enjoyed going to bluegrass festivals with her husband Carl. She enjoyed going to Mr. Whiskers every weekend, while they were able to go. She also enjoyed shopping and having garage sales. After her husband of 55 years of marriage passed away in 2006, she spent a lot of time with her children and their families. Every Friday night she went with Lyle and Sharon and their boys to eat at Sandra and Roger’s house, which is Lyles parents. She enjoyed sitting and visiting with all that came to eat there. After she broke her hip in 2022, she was homebound more. She enjoyed reading her Bible, watching the Game Show Network and working crossword puzzles and talking on the phone.

Preceding her in death were her parents, Earnest and Ruth Vaughan; her husband, James Carl Hollingsworth; son, Lanis Dale Hollingsworth and granddaughter, Emily Leggett Sullivan.

Those left to cherish her memory are her daughters, Nan Leggett and husband, Cameron and Sharon H. Brumfield and husband, Lyle.

She is also survived by her five grandchildren, Elisha Holmes, Mitchell Leggett, Corey Hollingsworth, Nick Brumfield and Alex Brumfield; seven great-grandchildren, Jake Holmes, Reagan Holmes Chipman, Haley Holmes Stroud, Will Holmes, Ava Leggett, Mallory Leggett Grayson Sullivan, also her six great-great-grandchildren, Margot Holmes, Marley Jo Holmes,

Ren Chipman, Atley Stroud, Royal Stroud and Emersyn Holmes. She is also survived by her sister-in-law, Janis Magee and husband, Reggie, sister-in-law, June Fisher; nephews, Chad Fisher, Brent Fisher and Rick Hollingsworth. June and Janis were more like sisters she never had.

She will be dearly missed by all that loved her.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
