Fern M. Davis

MORTON - Fern M. Davis, 90, of Morton, passed away on Friday, April 26, 2019 at home in her sleep.
She was born August 26, 1928, in Goodfield, Ill., to August and Nettie (Rocke) Knapp. She married William "Don" Davis in 1962. He preceded her in death on December 27, 2016. She was also preceded in death by her sister, Erma Opperman; her two brothers, Jim and Marvin Knapp; and one brother-in-law, KC Opperman.
Surviving are one son, Brad Davis of Groveland; and several nieces and nephews.
Fern attended Brown Business College in the 1950's and worked as a secretary for Westinghouse and Central Bank in Peoria.
Fern loved spending time with family and friends. She enjoyed being a part of her golf league, volunteering at the Morton United Methodist Church and also at We Care, Inc.
Fern suffered from Progressive Supra Nuclear Palsy, along with many other health problems later in her life. She was unable to perform many of life's simple tasks, like verbal communication, regular movement, feeding herself, swallowing, and being able to see, yet she still kept a positive attitude to the end.
Even with the health issues she had, Fern loved to be alive and smile. She would listen to the television, music, or anyone that was there spending time with her.
