She operated a beauty shop in her home in Dixon until her marriage in 1944. She and her husband Robert resided in Fargo for 20 years, until his retirement in 1968, when they moved to their lake home on Island Lake, near Detroit Lakes. Fern’s years at the lake with her husband Robert were the happiest times of her life. Fern enjoyed traveling to Europe to visit her daughter. She enjoyed nature, especially feeding hummingbirds and spending time doing homework with her great-grandchildren. She moved to Peru in 2001 and attended the Parkview United Methodist Church.

Surviving Fern are her son Don (Sharon) Ross of Peru; her daughter Margaret Elaine Ross of Denver, Colo.; grandchildren Robert D. Ross of Ft. Wayne, Ill., and Christina Miser of Peru; great grandchildren Elizabeth, Margaret, Skyler, Emma, and Briana. Also surviving is a brother, Dale Davidson of Anchorage, Alaska.

Fern was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Robert; and sisters Grace, Ruth, Mildred, and Bernadine. A private service celebrating the life of Fern H. Ross was held at her home. She will be interred on September 30 at 10:15 in Greenwood Cemetery, next to her husband Robert.
