October 16, 2007
My Aunt Fern Hauan, 95, passed away last Friday at the Good Samaritan Center in Forest City, Iowa. Funeral service will be Wednesday, October 17, 2007 at 1:00 PM at Bethany Lutheran Church in Thompson with Pastor Mark Decker officiating. Burial wil be at Rose Hill Cemetery in Thompson. Visitation will be Wednesday, October 17 from 11 AM until time of service at the church.

Fern Lucille Hauan was born in McCallsburg, Iowa on August 27, 1912, the daughter of Paul and Sophia (Strum) Lura. She moved with her family to Winnebago County in 1920 and received her education in Thompson. She graduated from high school there in 1930. She was my father's mother's brother's wife.

Back in the 1970s she made us a homemade Norwegian quilt, which we treasure and use to this day.

My son Thomas sent me this photo of himself in Peru:

At first I was concerned because I thought he might be going into politics, or worse yet, a life in media. But, no, he was just goofing at an empty podium. Whew! A life dedicated to humor I can handle.
