She loved cooking and baking in her spare time. She and one of the neighbors also had a weekly walk through the neighborhood, for exercise, and collecting cans along their route. She would be the designated driver, taking members and neighbors to doctor visits, grocery shopping and sometimes traveling. She was a giver to all that knew her.

Auntie Ernestine! Thank you for your love a support for my mom, Ida Nell Carrol- (passed 2-14-21). You guys were inseparable! I will never forget to remember the long road trips throughout the state with you as a child! The many experiences, my mom and other family members did with you. I actually started to fall in love with "cheese ball chips and bologna sandwiches" simply because of wonderful lunches my mom and you would prepare on our road together! But now as an adult... never found out your secret: freezing the bologna and bread without it getting soggy once it defrosted.. and I never asked my mom! (LOL) Once I grew up, I realized how blessed my mom and you were as best friends. I never heard you guys disagree... I always saw how much love you poured into me as a child. I am truly greatful that I witness what a "true friend" looked liked as a young child. You were more than a best friend to my mom and a Auntie to me.... you were our rock! I will always remember you and your generous heart. God's blessings on your sweet soul! Rest now Auntie.... you can rest now! Until again.... La'Shaun
