Fern Maye Good went to our heavenly home on Sunday, August 19th, 2018 at St. John’s Lutheran Community. Family and friends all gathered to say their own goodbyes on the eve of her death. The nursing home staff also shared their goodbyes.


Fern was born on August 17, 1929 to Ralph and Myrtle Sorensen in Freeborn, MN. She married Neil Good of Lamoure, ND in 1951. They lived in Moorhead, MN before moving to North Dakota to take over farming for Neil’s father. She had two children, Linda and Lynn. Fern loved music and enjoyed playing piano and accordion. She loved to play and sing in church as well as for her own enjoyment. Fern received ribbons for her planted flower at the fair this year.


Fern is survived by her children, Lynn (Lyn) Sorensen, and Linda Good; grandchildren, Mary (Mike) Weidenbach, Lisa (David) Schultz, James (Jacque) Sorensen, Dean (Tara) Ketterling, Sherry Ketterling (Rob Samudio), David Ketterling (Stacy Wayne), and Doni (Megen) Ketterling; great-grandchildren, Hannah Weidenbach, Corbin, Cameron, & Turena Schultz, Jacob (Alli), Isaac, Levi, & Caleb Sorensen, Dalten Ketterling, Alyssa Samudio, Dakota Ketterling
