At an early age she was baptized at the Eleven Oaks Baptist Church. Earnestine received her education in the Crewe, Virginia public school system. She later married the late Horace Carr. She was also preceded in death by her son, Herbert Hanks. She moved to Pennsylvania where she was a caregiver. In the 1950’s she returned home to care for her mother and sister, the late Augusta Hanks until their passing.
