Yes, the earnings will continue to accumulate free of income taxes in the IRA.
When you begin withdrawals from tax-deferred IRA money, then whatever you take then gets taxed -- not before. If you die with that money still in the account, then your beneficiary will be taxed on the money still in the IRA.
