FERN PORTER LARSON
Happy 90th Birthday, Grandma Fern!
Fern Porter Larson was born on Nov. 15, 1923, in Preston, Idaho. She was the tenth of 11 children born to Albert and Mary Porter.
When Fern was five years old her father died suddenly, which meant her brothers had to take care of the farm while she learned to help her mother in the home. This is where she learned great cooking skills, the value of hard work and being thrifty.
She attended school through the eighth grade in Egypt, Idaho, and then went on to Preston High School.
It was while attending LDS seminary that she met Gene Larson and fell in love. They were married on Jan. 7, 1942, in the Logan LDS Temple. They lived in San Diego, Winder and Preston where she still resides.
Fern is a wonderful cook and seamstress. She has used those skills to bless her family and others. She is an active member of the LDS Church and has also continually demonstrated compassionate service.
Fern has five children, Gloria, Douglas (deceased), Craig, Neal and Tina, 16 grandchildren, 29 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
Fern’s family honored her at a family dinner.
Happy Birthday Mom! We love you!
