Fern Chittick turned 90 years old on Sunday (June 29).

She was born in 1924 in Saskatchewan to Lester and Ella Croswell, who moved to Langley in 1948.

Fern, with her husband Tom, and two daughters, Colleen and Barbara, moved to Langley permanently in 1977.

They moved to the same property her father had lived on, and she still lives on that property today.

She is a happy and vibrant mother and grandmother. In addition to her two daughters, she has six grandchildren. Her oldest daughter and her family also live on the property.

She loves to go to the gym, loves to garden and visit with her sisters.

“There is not a word to describe how great a mother, grandmother or person she is. Happy 90th birthday Mom and Grandma, we love you very much,” are the wishes of her daughter, son-in-law and granddaughters, Colleen, Al, Melanie and Alison.
