Eartha was born June 27, 1930, in Branchville to the late Eddie and Dessie Williams Glover. She attended church at the former Wilson Chapel United Methodist Church. She was educated in the public schools of the Branchville area. At an early age, she moved to Trenton, New Jersey, where she lived for over 30 years, before returning to Branchville.

Eartha was known by her family and friends as a loving and caring person who was loved by her family. Although she had no biological children of her own, she acted as a mother to all of her nieces and nephews. She was always quick to prepare delicious meals, and don't forget about monetary donations, always at our side.
