Of this marriage the two were blessed with two children, Ronnie and Jana. Ernesteen was a hard worker and always made sure her family was taken care of. She worked for Southwestern Bell Telephone Company for a year while she was in high school. She worked without pay, just to learn the job in hopes they would hire her once she graduated high school.

She was a member of the First Baptist Church in Hollis. Ernesteen loved tending to her garden and working around her house, she was very proud of her home and all she and her husband worked for.
