Life Story Info
I always felt close to your mom's family because our mothers were sisters and good friends. Fern and Closs would stop by our home in St. George on occasions when they were either going or coming back from their home in Beaver Dam. She and Closs would often stop by my parents, Curt and Lucille Lewis in Kamas as they were on their way to their Weber Canyon Cabin. Fern was always friendly and fun to be around. What a special person, she will be missed.
