My mother grew up in the Palestine, OH area, and died in 1998. I found this obituary among some of her papers. Fern must have been a neighbor of hers, or possibly one of her teachers.. I thought someone would like this for their research efforts. This is from the Greenville paper, but the name of the paper is not on the obituary, just the handwritten notation of "1997".

She was born December 30, 1896, in Mercer County, the daughter of Franklin E. and Margaret (Pepple) Waggoner. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, John H.
