Earline was a worker.  She was a floor supervisor at Brown Shoe.  After that career, she became the owner/operator of the Roundhouse Restaurant.  She also was involved in the trucking business with Bud.

She loved life and having fun.  She believed that “you have feet to dance.”  In addition to dancing, she liked to sing and yodel.  Cooking was not just a hobby but a passion.  Since she lived across the street from the high school, tailgating was a Friday night tradition.  She loved animals and made sure that all of the strays were fed.
