Fern Goble Weatherford
Born November 25, 1928 in Bethany, Oklahoma, Lily Fern Goble became one of the most recognized singers in all of southern gospel.
By the late 1940s, her talent had convinced her husband, Earl Weatherford, to reconsider his personal preference for an all-male quartet. Replacing his tenor singer with his wife's alto proved to be the defining mark of Earl's own distinguished career, as well as that of the entire Weatherford Quartet.
With a beautiful alto voice and singing ability rarely matched in the industry, Lily Fern helped break the tradition of all-male quartets by adding to the close blend and harmony of what came to be regarded as one of the all-around best groups in Southern Gospel history.
Even after the loss of her husband in 1992, Lily Fern continued to grace the Southern Gospel stage with her remarkable voice and genuine presentation. Through it all, she remained a true ambassador of the good news of Jesus Christ in song.
