Ferne Smith

Ferne passed away peacefully in her sleep surrounded by her beloved family. She transpired grace through the richness, focus, and confidence that allowed her to flourish in her passions of people and education. Her inspirational teaching affected the lives of those she came into contact with; from assisting to open a school in Swan Hills, Alberta to being a principal while she raised her four children Jim, Norm, Gerry, and Catherine. Ferne engaged in every community she lived in and spent her final years in Ladysmith with her Husband Joe Yablonski. She was a sweet, lovely lady with a fiery wit that will forever be remembered. The celebration of life will be held on April, 23, 2016 at 1:00pm at the Ladysmith Baptist Church.
