Marietta (Marti)

Stuersel Fernandez

Marietta Stuersel Fernandez, born October 5, 1925 in Fairhope Alabama, went to join Our Lord June 5, 2013. Known as Marti to family and friends, she is now at her husband's side, Capt. Sergio Fernandez, as she was for over 60 years, while he served our country in the United States Navy. The service life required Home to change locations frequently. She made Home around the world, from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to Kenitra, Morocco to Eva Beach, Hawaii and points in between before retirement in Pensacola, Florida. She is survived by three children, Sergio Fernandez, Sha Bone, Marci Siegel, nine grandchildren and sister Mrs. Helen Stuersel Plag. She loved digging in the earth with plants and flowers. She loved the gulf, the beach and our "Christmas in July" family reunions. So it is appropriate for us to celebrate her life at a family gathering on the Gulf of Mexico.
