Obituary

Fern Mae Root

Fern Mae Root passed at age 90 on March 28, 2011 at Providence Medical Center in Everett, WA from complications following surgery. She was with family.
Fern was born in Sylva, North Carolina on January 16, 1921. She was the oldest of six siblings. She lived most of her life in Marysville, WA. She owned her own successful business as a beautician for over 45 years.
She married the love of her life, Gordon Root, at age 18 and together, they raised three children.
Fern lived a life filled with faith, courage, strength, independance and a steadfast devotion to help all who needed it most.
Fern had an amazing faith. She converted to Catholicism at age 18 when she married Gordon. She was artistic, an avid gardener, and loved watching the Mariners. She had a gentle, sweet way with all manner of animals, especially dogs. Her greatest joy was from family... and watching her only grandson, Eric, grow up.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Bertha and Edward Clayton; stepfather, Richard Tompkins; husband, Gordon Root; son, Daniel Root; her brothers, Robert Clayton and Ray Clayton; and sister, Faye Crum.
Fern is survived by son, Daryl Root; daughter, Kathleen Krausz; son-in-law, Pete Krausz; grandson, Eric Krausz; Mary Ludwig; Brook Baker; four great-grandsons, Jonah, Elan, Shade and Miles Krausz; her sisters, Florence Morgan and Grace Crisp; and numerous neices, nephews and dear friends.
We were blessed to have Fern touch our lives. God knows the beauty of her soul, and so do all of us who were fortunate to have known her.
