She died Tuesday at Tri-County Hospital in Wadena following a car accident north of Bluegrass in Wadena County.

According to the Wadena County Sheriff's Department, the one-vehicle accident was reported at 7:49 a.m. on CSAH 23 just south of the intersection with CSAH 10 in North Germany Township.

The driver was Fearn's brother, Robert Jacobson, 84, of Nevis.

The vehicle was traveling southbound on CSAH 23 in a 2000 Cadillac when he lost control of the vehicle, which crossed over the northbound lane, entered the ditch and collided with a tree.
