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,

her great grandsons Peter and Nicholas  of Alta

Loma, California, her sister-in-law Lola Lambert of

DeKalb, Illinois and her nieces Karen Mahrenholz of

 Carol Stream, Illinois and Lucille Snoots of

New Concord, Ohio.

We LOVE you mom and will always have you in our hearts.
