Elva Fern Porter passed away on Thursday, January 8, at Jordan Creek Care Facility in Springfield, Mo., after a long illness. Fern was born on September 15, 1935 in Arkansas. Fern was married in May of 1964 to George W. Porter of Rogersville, Mo.
She enjoyed gardening, reading, crossword puzzles, watching NFL Football and of course Jeopardy every evening. One of her greatest joys came in 2005 with the birth of her only grandchild, granddaughter Darby Faith Elva Porter. Sharing the name Elva, the red hair and a big stubborn streak, they made quite a pair, Grandma and her "mini-me".
In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, George W. Porter; an infant daughter, Karla Jo Porter; her brother, Lewis Burnett; and a sister, Pauline Carlson.
Fern is survived by her son, Joey Porter and granddaughter, Darby Porter of Rogersville; her sister, Zella Maslen of Pryor, Okla.; and many nieces, nephews and friends that she both appreciated and loved dearly...." 1
