Ernestine was born to the union of Thelma Augusta and Albert Greer, Sr. in St. Louis, Missouri.  Her parents, two brothers, Albert Greer, Jr. and Ernest Greer (twin), five sisters, Rosie Greer, Alma Greer Miller, Eva Mae Farley, Minnie Lee Greer Marshall Barlow and Eleanor Watley, a granddaughter, Tawanna Smith, all preceded her in death. She departed this life on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 9:52 p.m. Ernestine was born in St. Louis, Missouri and at the age of nine the family moved to Denmark, Tennessee where she received her formal education.  She was a proud graduate of Ivy Tech Community College where she received her license in Early Childhood Care.  One of her proudest accomplishments was her participation in the Folklife Program sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.  For sixty-two wonderful years, Ernestine and Isaac shared in Holy Matrimony.  During this time they were blessed with five loving daughters and one devoted son.  Among her many hobbies included the following: playing the piano, reading, shopping, eating at our favorite restaurants, working in the garden, cooking.  The focal point of her home was her kitchen where she enjoyed cooking and entertaining.  She was an excellent cook known for her sweet potato pie, molasses pudding, and macaroni and cheese.  In addition, she possessed the gift of hospitality; she never met a stranger and welcomed everyone into her home.  Her gift of generosity knew no bounds; she graciously shared her wisdom and sense of humor with everyone from all walks of life. Whatever problem you might have incurred, she’d readily support  you to solve it.  Whatever your concerns were she offered hope and encouragement. Ernestine accepted Christ at St. John Missionary Baptist Church No. 2 in Denmark, Tennessee.  When she moved to Indianapolis, Indiana she began fellowshipping with First Samuel Missionary Baptist Church.  In 1964, together she and her family, joined Beulah Baptist Church now known as Promise Land Christian Community Church where she served as a trustee, president of the Mothers Board, nurse, and missionary.  While a member of Beulah Baptist Church, she was selected “Mother of the Year.”  She loved her family and held her heritage in high esteem. Ernestine leaves to celebrate her victory over death her loving husband, Rev. Isaac Weddle; one son, Earl Weddle of Indianapolis and five daughters, Dorsey Kendrick (Curtis) of New Haven, Connecticut, Dianne Anthony (Wilbon) of St. Louis, Missouri, Mary Thompson (Clark), Joyce Akridge (Duane) and Cheryl Johnson (Bernard) of Indianapolis, Indiana; one brother, Jerome Greer (Elaine) of Peoria Illinois; three sisters-in-law, Naomi Weddle, Lois Greer and Doris Greer; one brother-in-law, Joseph Farley, Sr.; twelve grandchildren, sixteen great grandchildren and a host of nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.

To Director Dianne Anthony, Wilbon, Evg. Miecy and the entire Anthony and Greer-Weddle Family,
On behave of the Board of Director and Director Emeritus Sister Nellie Rush the Christian Women of the New Wave greet you today, in the Precious Name of Jesus. We extend our sincere prayers to our Director Dianne Anthony, Wilbon, Evg Miecy Hunt and your family as you celebrate the life of such a Precious Gift of a Woman Mother Ernestine Weddle.
Mother Ernestine’s presence has not only envelop you her family, it covered the Women of the New Wave and as a part of the body of Christ we say to your family her strength, faithfulness, prayers and concern for each of us will be greatly missed.
Ecclesiastes 3; reminds us that there is a time and season for everything. Our loving Father has given Your Precious Love One Mother Ernestine a special season of Life and she has lived it, a season of Love and she gave it her all and now Our Loving Savior has given her the season of Rest, she has so peacefully entered into it.
To this Family please be in remembrance, in this hour the Lord is your strength; and II Corinthian says that He is the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort others in trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God (NIV, II Cor., 1:3-4). In this time of grief and sorrow turn it over to Jesus; casting all of your cares upon Him for He cares for you. 1st Peter 5:7

Prayerfully Submitted by,
The Christian Women of the New Wave
