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.
