Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Donna Fernald Ahern


Married Tom Ahern on May 1, 1965 and moved to Branford/East Haven, CT shortly thereafter which is his home turf. Our 2 daughters were born in CT. Returned to NH in 1971 and worked as a bookeeper for a local mfg company. Moved to Barrington, NH in 1977 and worked as a junior accountant for a local CPA firm. Obtained my accounting degree once our daughters graduated high school. Accepted a position with Liberty Mutual as a senior accountant with the Business Markets department at the Dover, NH campus. I retired in January, 2007 to spend quality time with my husband in NH and at our winter home in West Melbourne, FL.

Our daughters have blessed us with 4 wonderful grandchildren. Colleen has a boy (18) and a girl (16) Kelly has 2 boys, 15 and 13. I feel very fortunate that they all live within a 15 mile radius of us.
