Fern Arlene Sweigert, 88, Beattyville, Ky., died May 5, 2014, in Kentucky River Medical Center, Jackson, Ky.
She was born in Mohnton, a daughter of the late Parke and Brita (Wingenroth) Sweigert and devoted her life at age 22 to serving as a missionary through Canyon Falls Evangelical Congregational Church. Teaching school for over 50 years, holding various positions in the church and encouraging others to know Jesus Christ and serve God was Fern’s quest.

Surviving is a sister: Marion (Chet) Ensinger, and brother-in-law, Mark R. Gehr, both of Ephrata.
A sister, Eva Ann Gehr, predeceased her.
Services were held May 13 from Good Funeral Home & Cremation Centre, Reamstown, with Rev. Jeff Martin officiating. Burial followed in Lincoln Cemetery, Ephrata.
