She worked fourteen years at the nursing home in Neillsville, followed by twenty years at Memorial Medical Center. Fern also held various other jobs including The Raft House in Greenwood, Sniteman Pharmacy, Curves, 7 C’s Daycare, and Greenwood School cafeteria aid.
She had many interests, but especially loved spending time with her grandchildren and family, family vacations in Holcombe over the 4th of July, reading, cooking, theater, music, and sitting out on her back patio in the warmth of the sun.

She was preceded in death by her parents and one sister: Joan Hukari.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to Dr. Marian Greenburg and her staff at Marshfield Clinic Health System.
