was a woman quick to dance or laugh despite her battle with Alzheimer’s. She was a compassionate,
thoughtful and honourable woman who loved her family and animal companions, especially her dog Bixby. Her
love of life and people touched the lives of all those who knew her. Her quiet courage, strength of
spirit, creativity and sense of humour will be carried forward by those who knew and loved her.
Mom had many fond memories of her childhood and family growing up at Crystal Lake Ranch and playing
baseball. She worked side by side with Tom. She drove gravel trucks and had 23 mailing addresses the
first year of marriage. Proud of her Norwegian heritage she often used the phrase “Uff-da”. She was an
avid baker – her specialty – Lefsa and apple pies. She enjoyed her large garden, orchard and preserved
hundreds of quarts each year. She was especially fond of Christmas. Fern enjoyed dancing, music, crafts,
snowmobiling, camping and playing Skip-Bo. In the latter years she loved to have her daily shot of rum.
Family was very important to her as she was to them. She loved slipping her two special granddaughters
some loot. We are blessed that Dad took such loving care of Mom.
