Fern along with four of her siblings were raised by her newly wedded sister Alice and brother-n-law Vince Kampter. Fern graduated from Farber High School class of 1956. Her class was the last that would ever graduate from Farber. She had a smile that would light up a room and laughter to fill any void. She was a true fighter. Fern was a woman to be remembered. She cut a solo vinyl record, would bake goodies for the grandchildren daily, a teacher to those that needed guidance. Fern was a loving friend, sister, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She was unforgettable and loved by all who knew her.
