Fernabelle Marie Howell, 93, of Pleasant Prairie, went home with our Lord Jesus in eternal life on Tuesday, January 5, 2021, at The Manor of Kenosha, from dementia.

Born on May 21, 1927, in Readstown, WI she was the daughter of the late Samuel and Elma (Shepherd) Owen.

On June 27, 1944, she married Frederick Olson and they later divorced. Then on November 27, 1968, she married William Howell who preceded her in death on October 29, 1999.

Fernabelle was a dedicated and caring homemaker, raising seven children. She was a member at Southport Baptist Church, and was an avid Green Bay Packer fan.

Survivors include six children, June Salb, Karen (Jack) Gerber, Fred Olson, Jr., Mary (Ken) Davis, Tina (Todd) Richards, and Jon Olson; 16 grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren; and four great-great-grandchildren.

Aside from her parents and husbands, she was preceded in death by a daughter, Doris Roach; two grandchildren, Louis and Lisa; a brother, LaVerne Owen; a sister, Donna Clark; and two sons-in-law, John Roach and Bob Salb.

The family would like to thank Kenosha Place, Froedtert-Pleasant Prairie, ManorCare, and Hospice Alliance for the compassionate care they provided Fernabelle.

Fern sat in the row behind us with her daughter June at Soutport Baptist Church almost every Sunday until her health no longer permitted. She always had a smile when we greeted her.
