Earline's life was characterized by her unwavering and positive outlook. She embarked on a career in the beauty industry after graduating from beauty school, eventually opening her own successful beauty salon where she shared her passion for hair styling with many. Her creativity knew no bounds, from experimenting with different haircuts on her loved ones to organizing a thriving Ladies Bible Study group at Oak Haven Senior Apartments. Earline's willingness to tackle new challenges by learning and researching showcased her strong work ethic and dedication.

Among the fondest memories of Earline are the summers spent fishing at the lakehouse with her family. Her love for fishing was evident as she could spend endless hours by the water, imparting this joy to her children and grandchildren over the years.

Beyond her professional and leisure pursuits, Earline was deeply cherished for her kind and jovial personality. She always had a kind word to share and brought smiles to those around her with her witty phrases and gestures. Her grandchildren hold dear memories of these special moments that will forever be treasured.

Earline found immense pride in her family, including her late daughter Debra Lynn Richardson Bass, son Johnny Hayne Richardson, and sister Betty Bailey Gurley who departed too soon. She is survived by a loving family including her brother Carl S Bailey and his wife Latricia Bailey, brother Aurthur Jerry Bailey and his wife Mona Bailey, brother Michael Holcomb, daughter Pamela K Richardson Mercurio and son-in-law Robert "Tug" Mercurio. Additionally, she leaves behind grandchildren Sjonnie Last name, Debra Z., Michelle, Bobby, Tina, great-grandchildren M last name, Zacharah, Reese, Jude, Addelynn, Blake, Bennett, Asher & Brayden along with countless friends.

Earline's essence will forever live on through those who knew and loved her. Her proudest accomplishments revolved around her faith in Jesus Christ which brought an everlasting sense of happiness into her life. Despite facing health challenges with unwavering courage and grace until the end of her journey on earth. As she gazes upon our Precious Lord now in eternal peace.

In honoring Earline Jewell Wright's remarkable life journey may we find solace in the memories shared together and may her legacy of love and resilience inspire us all to embrace each day with joy and faith as she did so beautifully.
