SoVaNow.com / January 22, 2013
On Jan. 19, 2013, Earnestine Hunt Nelson was called home to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

She was born in Clarksville, on May 3, 1934 to the late William “Willie” Hunt and Lizzie Hunt. Earnestine came to know the Lord at an early age and attended several churches before joining Bibleway Church of Christ in Boydton. Even though she was unable to attend church over the past few years, she still had the Love of God in her heart and continued to have a very strong relationship with the Lord. She always believed in sharing God’s word with everyone and would lend a helping hand to anyone that she knew in need.

Preceding her in death were her parents, four brothers Willie, Douglas, Jackie and Eugene, two sisters Mary E. Fields and Catherine Stovall.

Loving memories of her will be cherished by her husband Willie B. Nelson, eight children Arthur Downey (Brenda), Ellis Downey, Lee Roy Downey, Lorraine Downey, Jo Ann Hunt and Katina Nelson all of Clarksville, Lois Downey of Henderson, N.C., and Loretta Richardson (Calvin) of Boydton. One sister Betty Hunt Jenkins of Chase City. Twelve grandchildren, thirty-one great-grand children, two great-grand children, five brothers-in-law, three sister-in-law and spouses, a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives and friends. Mary Ann Russell seemed as a sister, Sabrina Wilkerson, seemed as a daughter.

A funeral will be held Thursday, Jan. 24, at 2:00 p.m. at the Bibleway Church of Christ.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, Jan. 23, from 6-8 p.m. at the chapel of Carter’s Funeral Home.
