Fern M. Gee, age 94, went to be with her Lord on Friday, March 30, 2012, at home in Albuquerque, NM, where she had lived for the last eight years with her daughter Sharon. Fern was born on February 25, 1918, in rural Cambria, WI, daughter of James and Annie Rohde Horton. On October 3, 1940, she was married to Joseph Vivian Gee; in 1943 they moved to Campton Township, Kane County, IL, where they lived on farms until 1966 when they moved to Sycamore, IL. Fern was known for her organizational skills, neatness and thriftiness. Fern worked in factories and was a house cleaner. Fern loved to work outside and was disappointed last year when her failing heart prevented her from doing all the leaf raking and porch sweeping that she enjoyed so much. Fern is survived by her daughter, Sharon Gee of Albuquerque, NM; her sister, Velma Horton Gerber of Tempe, AZ; sisters-in-law, Inez Schultz Horton of Wyocena, WI, and Ida Gee Hudson Wilder of DeKalb, IL; several cousins, nieces and nephews. Fern was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Arnold, Gordon and Marvin; brothers-in-law, Robert Gerber and Paul Hudson; son, James in 1952; husband, Joseph in 2004; two nieces and a nephew. There will be a graveside service at Elmwood Cemetery in Sycamore, IL, at a later date when her ashes are interred in the family gravesite. Special thanks to Mark for his frequent phone calls over the last eight years and to Brenda and Carol for their many cards and letters, brightening Fern's days during her largely homebound years.
