    She was a great lady. She was my Den Mother in Cub Scouts and a woman I could go to if I had any problems. Always a smile and telling me to “Be Good”. She will be missed by all in her life.

    Fern was a very special lady to the Ashland community. I have so many fond memories of her growing up with the Hauschild and Boston girls in school. My most recent memory was when I started cooking at Oxbow. The surprise on my face and pure joy when I saw that Fern lived there. I chatted with her everyday and made sure I could do whatever I could for her. She spent so many years and countless hours taking care of the kids that were friends with her kids, that I felt very special to be able to be there for her as she settled in the Oxbow community.

    I will greatly miss her and that genuine heart felt smile that seemed to be endlessly on her face. My condolences to her entire family. You were all so blessed to have her as your family.
