Eartha Stockton Bing

October 22, 1936 ~ June 12, 2021 (age 84)



Eartha Lene Stockton Bing, daughter of the late Ethel Mae Brown-Graham (Mudear) and Harold Stockton was born on October 22, 1936 in Ocala Florida. After being graced with 84 plus years, God granted her a peaceful rest from her journey on June 12, 2021

Education Eartha attended Howard Academy in Ocala, Florida. 

Work After becoming a mother in her early years, she dedicated several years of her life working for her children and family in many positions then finally retiring as a Presser. After retirement, she spent most of her time baby sitting grands, great-grands and great-great grands and telling us ALL what to do. 

Her Legacy During a period of time when many of her peers had multiple brothers and sisters, Eartha was an only child. She often joked that she gave birth to her family because she had no siblings. During her lifetime she would see over 70 off springs born and she knew each one by name. 6 children will miss the love of their mother, 22 grands will remember the lessons of their grandmother, 37 great-grands will teach Eartha’s legacy and 5 great-great grands will learn the power of their ancestor through the lens of those who are left to mourn her passing. 

Preceded in Death by: The love of her life Willie “Hot Rod” Bing, Daughter Olivia Donaldson, Grandson Donnell “Boobie” Dewese and Granddaughter Shaunta “Pooh” Griffin
