Fern Iona King Herring, age 93, of Provo, Utah, our beloved mother and grandmother, passed away on July 23, 2016. She was born July 15, 1923 to Isaac and Inezetta Empey King in Provo, Utah. Fern married Dale Templeton Herring August 14, 1940. Their marriage was solemnized in the Manti Temple July 23, 1948. They were blessed with 15 children, 56 grandchildren, and at present 310 great/great-great-grandchildren. Fern's life was totally dedicated to her family and was the source of her greatest joy. She was a wonderful and loving full-time mother and grandmother until her final days. She always looked forward to the weekly gatherings at her home with her children and grandchildren. Fern loved to embroider and make quilts! She has lovingly made hundreds of quilts for her family and friends. The quilts are treasured by all who received them. She also loved making cookies and homemade bread for her family and would have an abundance of loaves to share each week. Her birthday cards with "Grandma Dollars" were a treasure to receive. Her sweet words of "I Love You", "You're Special", "Be Careful", and "God Bless You" will be forever in our minds. Fern was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and deeply loved her Savior and Heavenly Father. In past years, she served as a worker at the Provo Temple and served in many other callings. We love you, mom!
