Fern M. Ehrhart, salon owner, long-time Akron Restaurant cook, dies
Fern M. (Rudy) Ehrhart, 84, of Akron, passed away Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013, in Lancaster.
She was born in Ephrata, the daughter of the late Ella M. (Rudy) and David Herr. She was the wife of the late William E. Ehrhart, who passed away in 2009, after 54 years of marriage.
Fern was a member of the Salem Lutheran Church, Ephrata since 1941. She was a 1946 graduate of Ephrata High School and a 1947 graduate of Hollywood School of Cosmetology. She was the owner/operator of Marceline’s Beauty Salon until 1958. After spending 12 years at home, she became employed as a cook at the former Akron Restaurant, from 1971 to 1995. She loved her job, all 24 years. Fern was also involved in the family business, E-Z Service, LLC, from 1960 to the present. She was a past president of the Akron Woman’s Club and West Earl Lioness Club, and she loved making peanut butter eggs. She was also a member of The Friendly Circle and The Young at Heart Seniors of Brownstown. She enjoyed cooking, bowling, playing cards, traveling and flying with her late husband in the "Cherokee" 9317-N airplane. Spending time with her granddaughter, Demi, were her most precious moments. Fern was thankful for a very devoted family.
She is survived by a son: Brian K., husband of Karen (Garrett) Ehrhart of Lititz; a granddaughter: Demi Ehrhart; a step sister: Mary Convry; a sister-in-law: Esther Ehrhart and two cousins: Vernon and Terry Lefever.
A viewing will be held Sept. 25 from noon to 1 p.m. at the Salem Lutheran Church, 1331 W, Main St., Ephrata, followed by a celebration of Fern’s life at 1 p.m. with Rev. Jeffrey Goodman officiating. Interment will take place in the Memory Gardens Memorial Cemetery.
