Ernestine B. Furlow, age 100, of 211 North Fourth Street, Vienna, died Wednesday, January 16, 2019, at Crisp Regional Hospital in Cordele.

Born in Seville, she was the daughter of the late Samuel Braswell and Minnie Watson Braswell.  Mrs. Furlow was a faithful member of Vienna First Baptist Church for many years where she served as Outreach Director.  One of her greatest joys was visiting the sick and shut-ins and delivering the church magazines to them.   She enjoyed baking and was well known for the many pound cakes she made and for providing one for bereavement meals at her church.  Her family considered her their "family historian" and she always made scrapbooks to mark various family events.  For over 40 years, Mrs. Furlow sold Avon products around the community.
