Obituary for Fern Anna King

(nee Engelhardt) Born to Eternal Life Thursday, November 16, 2017, age 95 years. Fern has gone before us marked with the sign of faith. Loving mom to her 4 children: Michael (Linda), Tom (ex, Dottie Sue; ex, Anna), Mary Anne (Dan) DeZur, and Terri. Fern’s beloved husband, Richard (Cal); grandchild, Tommy; and sister, Nancy; preceded her in her journey to God. Her spirit lives on in her 4 children; 9 surviving grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren; her brother, Richard (Gail) Engelhardt; and numerous relatives and friends. Fern dedicated the last 25 years of her life serving as an Associate of School Sisters of Notre Dame. She is a proud alumnus of St. Rita’s Catholic Grade School; Holy Angels Academy High School; and the Modern School of Beauty Culture, starting her lifelong career as a Registered Cosmetologist. Fern was known as the “bean lady” at Holy Assumption for making her famous baked beans for the monthly meal program, plus cooking up 2 turkeys, 5 gallons of gravy and homemade dressing in her own kitchen each Thanksgiving, 30 years running. Besides her family, Fern’s greatest joy was to serve and volunteer at Holy Assumption. She was most grateful for the loving friendship of the school nuns and her fellow volunteers. Visitation will be held Wednesday, November 22, 2017 at Holy Assumption Church (7109 W. Orchard St., West Allis) 9:30AM until time of Rosary at 10:45AM with Mass of Christian Burial at 11AM. Fern will be laid to rest next to her husband at Mount Olivet Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, Fern’s last request included mass memorials in her name.
