Ernestine Creason Copeland, 87, of Benton passed away at 10:45 a.m. Sunday, May 25 at Tradewater Health & Rehabilitation Center in Dawson Springs.

Ernestine retired from the Kentucky Department of Transportation and was a member of the Elva Missionary Baptist Church. She was an avid gardener and her humble outlook on life was reflected in something she had written in a notebook that her daughter found, “I have often thought I’m nobody. Why would God answer my prayer? But God is not impressed with my eloquence; He is impressed by the longing in my heart for Him.”

She is survived by one daughter, Dorinda Doom Allen and her husband Donnie of Dawson Springs; one son, Gary K. Doom and his wife Lou of Kuttawa; four grandchildren, Kenna Doom Elkins, Dee Ann Wallace, Sean Cotham and Jamey Locke; eight great grandchildren, Piper Cotham, Sloan Cotham, River Cotham, Caleb Wallace, Sophie Wallace, Jacob Locke, Shelby Locke and Hannah Lock; and one sister, Emma Lou Rose of Benton.

She was preceded in death by her husband, J. B. Copeland; one sister, Dorothy Sellars; and three brothers, John W. Creason, Herman Creason and Robert Louis Creason. Her parents were John Wesley Creason and Ida Mae Burnett Creason.

Funeral services were held at 3:00 p.m. Wednesday, May 28 at Filbeck-Cann & King Funeral Home & Crematory. Elder Jeff Winfrey and Rev. Jimmy Seaford officiated. Burial followed in the New Harmony Cemetery.
