Birth: Mar. 27, 1933
Death: Jul. 8, 2003
Kern County
California, USA

Earnestine Harper was a deeply religious woman. She lived with her daughter Joanie Harper and was helping Joanie raise her three children, Marques, Lyndsey, and Marshall. Earnestine, the family matriarch, and her daughter and three young grandchildren went to church that Sunday, the day of their deaths, as they did each week. Earnestine wore her Sunday best that day and was in good spirits. The family introduced baby Marshall to the congregation at East Bakersfield Church of Christ.

All five were victims of mass murder committed by Joanie's estranged husband Vincent Brothers, who was convicted of murder and sentenced to death.
