Sorry to hear of Fern's passing. Beautiful picture of her-just as I remember her! Sounds like she lived a long good life and did many things she enjoyed over the years. I remember my parents talking fondly of Fern (and you too, Curt) over the years and reminiscing about their younger years. Thought of both you often when going past your driveway on Windsor St, wondering if you still lived there. Again, sorry for your loss and take care. Karla and John Kvalheim

Dear Curt and Dianne I was saddened to hear of Ferne's passing. My deepest sympathies to you. An amazing woman, and amazing life. Her always positive attitude and outlook always was so evident to me. Certainly she was never one to consider or factor age into anything. A life of hard work and always caring for others. Surely your love and care for her sustained her through these years and will in turn leave for you precious and indelible memories. My condolences in your grief and as you celebrate Ferne's life.

Eight years ago I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful, classy lady and her husband Curt. Ferne was a loving, full of life lady who enjoyed many things in her life and loved her adventures at the casino. She always was dressed in flattering outfits, her hair was perfect and she always had a smile on her face. I shared many hours with Ferne and Curt and I will miss this wonderful woman everyday. R.I.P. Ferne and we will meet at the casino soon!

Curt, Diane, & family. Ferne was such a beautiful person. We met back in the early 60's when we lived on the farm next door. Larry was an honorary pallbearer when Don passed away. My deepest sympathy to all the family. Hugs & Prayers. Curt please keep in touch. Mary
