Ed and Fern were “stability”to me all my youth .....and beyond. They stood by our family through all the ups a downs, joy and sorrow. We are so thankful for eternal bonds in the faith.

The kindness Aunt Fern showed to me during the years following my mother's death was over the top and I will NEVER forget it. Actions, not just words is what she gave. My brother one time said "I can't imagine a world with Aunt Fern in it". What an inspiration to me!

I went to meeting at Ed and Fern Yung's home for several months while in college, as well as being in their home several times for potlucks, and other gatherings. Precious Memories. Fern was a mother in Israel and a strong pillar.

It was such a joy knowing Fern. She made you smile because she was always smiling. We also had a lot of laughs fighting lol over who gets the bread and butter pickles. We did end up sharing. She will be very much missed. God bless you and sorry for your loss.
