Peacefully, at Huronview Home for the Aged, Fern Bernice McClure (née Dexter) passed away on Wednesday, June 5, 2019. In her 92 years among us Fern was a source of love, kindness and faith within the circle of her family and friends. Fern and Nelson approached the ups and downs of life as a team throughout 54 years of happy married life. We find comfort in trusting they are together again.
Fern will be lovingly remembered by her children Clayton & Joanne McClure and Bryan & Sharlene McClure. Cherishing memories of a very special grandma are Cindy & Steve Hyland, Shane McClure, Marcie & Brad Robinson, Amy McClure, Steven McClure & Jessi Burk, along with great grandchildren Carson Hyland and Jack Robinson. Fond memories of Fern remain with her many nieces and nephews.
Fern was the remaining family member of her generation in the Dexter and McClure family circles. In faith, we trust that Fern’s spirit is now reunited with her husband Nelson (2006) and siblings and siblings-in-law Elmer Dexter, Ethel & Stanley Ball, Viola & John Sanderson, Norma & Wilmer Glousher, Harvey & Bessie McClure, Sam & Mary McClure, James McClure, Margaret & Tom Carter, Bert & Dorothy McClure, Dorothy & Robert Dalton, Walter & Muriel McClure and Mavis & Percy Dalton.
Visitation will take place at McGlynn Family Funeral Home (519-527-1390), 87 Goderich Street West, Seaforth, on Friday, June 7, 2019 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A funeral service will be held at the funeral home on Saturday, June 8, 2019 at 11 a.m. Interment will take place in Maitlandbank Cemetery, followed by a reception in the fellowship hall of Egmondville United Church, 26 Kippen Road, Egmondville.
