GRACE “GIGI” WORTHING FERMAZIN
Fermazin, Grace Worthing of Anaheim, California
passed away on April 26, 2001. Grace was born
February 9, 1917 in Truro, Iowa to Charles and Nancy Ames Worthing.
Grace was a devout Christian. She was raised in a small
country town of Truro, Iowa in Madison County
(of Bridges of Madison County fame). She lost
her mother at age 12 and father at age 16. At
this time she moved to Birds Run, Ohio where
she lived with her brother Walter and her cousin
Eppie Mossholder of New Concord. At
age 18 she moved to Aurora, Illinois to live with
her older sister Blanche.
Here she met Robert Fermazin, her true love. They
were married 59 years. Grace worked many years
in the restaurant business. In 1959 Robert and Grace
and their two girls moved to Buena Park, California
where Grace “retired” and became a homemaker en-
joying the California sunshine, her children, grand-
children, and great grandchildren. They lived in Buena Park
for many years and then retired to Homeland,
California in the 1980’s.
In 2000 they moved back to the Anaheim area to
live closer to family and friends. Grace was well
known by family and friends for her thoughtful-
ness, generosity and a heart for all. She never
forgot a birthday, holiday or anniversary. Grace
volunteered for the American Cancer Society, vol-
unteered for the Orange County Voter Registration,
and was a member of the American Legion Ladies
Auxiliary, and enjoyed hobbies of making homemade
candy and crafts. Grace and Robert enjoyed camping
in their motor home and used to be big Western fans
and even had CB radios. Grace’s handle was
“Carburetor” an affectionate nickname Robert gave her.
Grace is survived by her beloved, Robert, her daughter
Nancy von Reyn and husband Bill of Buena
Park, her daughter Mary Gaouette and husband Jerry
of Fort Mohave, Arizona, grandsons Kevin and
wife Stella of Alta Loma, California, Dwight
of Twenty-nine Palms, and Brice of San Francisco,
