Fern
Fern Cocks, loving mother, grandmother and friend passed away peacefully at home in Hermosa Beach on September 4, 2006. Fern was born on January 19th, 1918 in Ardmore Oklahoma, the third child of Charles Keith and Josie Brumley. After spending her youth in Texas and Kansas, she moved to California in early 1947 where she met and married Ernest Cocks in South Pasadena on March 6, 1948. They bought a home in La Canada where Fern lived for over 50 years. Nine years after the death of her husband, Fern decided to join her daughter's family in moving to south Hermosa Beach. Living at the beach suited Fern, as she remained active, serving her church through Altar Guild, Sewing Guild, and thrift shop as well as enjoying the social seniors. Fern also enjoyed the many friends she made while walking the family dogs in her new neighborhood. Fern is survived by her daughter, Linda Sutherland, Linda's husband Tom French, grandson Mike Sutherland, brother James Brumley, and many nieces and nephews. Funeral services are planned for 11:00 A.M. Friday, September 8, 2006 at St. Cross Episcopal Church in Hermosa Beach.
