This obit was typed on a piece of paper and was found in the Fisher Family Bible that originally belonged to Henry Fisher. This Bible appears to have stayed in the family by the continuation of family obits that were glued inside. Please pass this along to the Fisher and Miami County mailing list. Thanks!
