Ernestine Alexander, 92, of Hot Springs, passed peacefully April 12, 2017. Ernestine was born in Monroe, Louisiana to the late Arnold and Ida Hostetler.

Ernestine graduated from high school in Brinkley, Arkansas and began a career at Monsanto which lasted over 30 years.

She was a devoted member of First Christian Church where she was involved in numerous capacities including choir and the Christian Women’s Fellowship group.

An avid outdoors woman, she loved to garden and did not mind at all shopping for antiques. Ernestine was also fond of traveling, especially if it involved lounge chairs and ocean liners.

Ernestine’s greatest loves were her sons, Dennis and Charles, who will miss her gentle humor and calming nature. She is also survived by her sister and best friend, Vera Edens; beloved grandson, Marc Alexander; great-grandchildren, Addison Alexander, Chloe Camp (Jordan), Marlow Alexander; great-great grandchild Elliot Camp; niece, Malinda Narbona (Juan); nephew, Bill Nesbitt (Denise) and their children, as well as other extended family members and friends.

She was predeceased by her sister, Mary Nesbitt.
