Fern Everson

d. September 14, 2011

Fern Elaine Everson, age 81, of Austin, died Wednesday, September 14, 2011 at her home. Fern was born November 5, 1930 in Austin to Felix and Minnie (Schocker) Petersen. In August 1947 she married Rodney Everson at the Church of Christ in Austin. Fern was a homemaker, a member of the Church of Christ and a teacher's aid in the public schools. Fern was an active member of the Austin Church of Christ. She taught Sunday School for over 50 years and was a member of the Prayer Ministry at her church. Her love of children and people was evident in her daily life. Her visits, baked goods and treats cheered many shut ins and community members. Feeding the birds and outdoor creatures was a daily committment but never a chore. She will be missed by family and friends. We thank God for the Christian Service she offered to others in His name. Survivors include two daughters, Jane Williams (Mike), Austin, Elaine Madera-Jean (Carl), Boston, MA; four grandchildren; three great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents and her husband. Memorial services will be held 10:30 am on Wednesday, September 21, 2011 at the Austin Church of Christ (103 2nd St. SW) with Rev. Dave DeFor officiating. Friends may call one hour before the service at the church on Wednesday. Interment will be in Oakwood Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred. Arrangements by Mayer Funeral Home.
