Fern Alberta Peterson

Fern Alberta Peterson was granted her angel wings on August 21, 2009. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that Fern had touched throughout her life. Special thanks to her sister, Thelma, for her wisdom and guidance.

Fern’s life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by her understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. Her beautiful smile and quick wit brought so much joy to our family.

Fern was predeceased by her father, Lawrence Albert, her mother, Dorothy Anne, her brother, Milton, and her sisters, May and Shirley. She is survived by her sister, Thelma, and her brother, Lloyd.

Left to carry on Fern’s loving legacy are her husband, Les, her seven children: Cherrie, Andy (Sharmon), Larry, Dan (Pearl), Rhonda (George), Donna (Barry) and James (Jocelyn). She will be lovingly remembered by so many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and nieces & nephews.

She is Gone


You can shed tears that she is gone

Or you can smile because she has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back

Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her

Or you can be full of the love that you shared

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday

Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

You can remember her and only that she is gone

Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on

You can cry and close your mind,

be empty and turn your back

Or you can do what she would want:

smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
