At an early age, Queen accepted God as her Lord and Savior and was baptized as a member of the New Galilee Baptist Church Kenbridge, Virginia. She attended Lunenburg County Public Schools and was a graduate of the Class of 1981. Queen later moved to Hampton, VA to babysit Kinte’ for Cousin Ruth and Glen Lewis. During her time in Hampton, she met Gregory McEachern. The two married and Queen moved to Newport News, VA where She joined Faith Baptist Church and also enjoyed worshiping with First Baptist Church on Jefferson Park.

For everyone who knew Queen, they knew that she loved supporting the ushers ministry of many different neighboring churches, supporting the Central High School Marching Charger Band and helping others every chance she could.
