Fern Christine Connolly of Monument Beach and a 34 year resident of Cape Cod, formerly of Charlestown, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loved ones on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 at Falmouth Hospital. She was 60 years old. Fern was born on July 13, 1956 in Boston, MA, beloved daughter of the late John and Fern (Titcomb) Connolly of Charlestown. She was educated at Boston Public Schools where she graduated from Charlestown High.

For 25 years Fern worked at the Trading Post Lounge in Bourne. Over the years she created everlasting friendships with not only her co-workers but also her customers. She always had an ear for listening, a warm hug, and a smile that could light up a room. Not only was Fern a mother to her own children but also to numerous children over the years who came to affectionately call her "Momma Fern". Fern always said she was put on this Earth to be a mom, soft at the edges, tempered spine of steel and a kind heart. If you asked Fern what she was most proud of the answer would be her children and grandson Gregory aka "Lovebug". Her favorite past time was being around family especially at her "Happy Place" in Derry, NH.

She is survived by her loving children Eric M. Guertin and his girlfriend Katy Decosta of Monument Beach, Fern R. Tobichuk and her husband Greg of Mansfield and the cherished Nana of her "Lovebug" Gregory. Loving sister of Paula Prince and her husband Richard, Jo-Ann Connolly, Karen Connolly and the late Michael J. Connolly all of Charlestown, John Connolly and his wife Lorrinda of Maine. She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews, her son from another mother CJ, and precious dog Rhea.
