Earnesteen Dodson Roberson was born March 10, 1930 in Lonoke County. She was the third child out of six born to the late Jerry and Emma Dodson. Mother Roberson professed a hope in Christ early in life at St. John Baptist Church, Pettus, Arkansas. When the church burned and relocated to Lonoke Mother Roberson remained a loyal member. She was an excellent cook and made the best homemade Cha-Cha, among other great food.

Grateful for the time spent with her and expecting to see her again are: a son Robert Earl Calhoun, North Little Rock, Arkansas; four daughters, Beverly Brown, North Little Rock, Arkansas; Cecill Roberson, Bernestine Mays and Patricia Roberson all of Lonoke, Arkansas; twenty grandchildren, fifty-one great-grandchildren, eight great-great-grandchildren, a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
