She later enjoyed her work and friendships at the Marine Military Academy in Harlingen, Texas where she served as the social/academic director for 25 years. She is remembered fondly by the students who lovingly referred to her as "mom." Fern lived her life completely and enjoyed many of life's riches, including spending time with her family, traveling, fishing, cooking, and gardening. She was always "ready to go!" She is survived by her daughters Janet Bercot, Ann Mitcham, and Susan Peters.

Fern's life will be celebrated privately with her family at the Arroyo, a fishing destination in south Texas she greatly loved, in the coming months.
