Fern James

With deep regret and sadness, the family of Fern James announce her passing on Sunday May 20, 2001 at Victoria General Hospital, Winnipeg.
Fern was raised in Pine Falls, MB and moved to a farm near Grand View, MB where she homesteaded with her husband. Fern and Cecil raised a family of four children. She resided in Dauphin, MB before moving to Rainy River, ON in 1951. While living in Rainy River, she was an active member of the United Church choir. She was always known for her culinary skills and used her creative cooking expertise in various business and personal endeavours. In 1967, she moved to Winnipeg, MB with her family.
Fern was an active member of the Canadian Legion Ladies Auxiliary and, in 1997, received her forty-five year service pin. She lived to help others however she could and was always giving gifts and love to everyone in need. Through her wonderful sense of humour and infectious laughter, she made friends wherever she went. She was a loyal friend and generous to all who knew her. She loved nothing better than to be with family and friends and to enjoy life. Her phenomenal memory for details of everyone around her endeared her to all. She remembered everyone she came in contact with and was always looking for a connection to whomever she met. Her generous and loving spirit will be with us always because

she was a strong and determined woman who wanted only the best of everything for everyone she knew and loved. We will all miss her good, kind nature and genuine, unconditional love.
