Fern was born on November 6, 1915 in Wendell, Idaho to Fern Ellen Hickman and Sheridan Phillip McGarry.
Fern attended Forestdale Elementary, Irving Junior High, and South High School. Her father's gift of an unusual gold nugget became partial tuition starting her education at the University of Utah. First in her family, Fern graduated in Physical Education, 1941.
