A Pioneer Lady Dead.
Mrs. Fisher, widow of the late George Fisher, died at her home near Mexico Friday evening, aged about seventy years, of erysipelas and other ailments common to old age. Mrs. Fisher had lived in Miami county many years and was one among the many worthy pioneer residents of the county. She was a member of the German Baptist church and being a devout christian her life was sent in doing good. She was an affectionate wife, a kind mother and a useful woman in the community in which she lived. No lady in Miami county was held in higher esteem, and she will be sadly missed by her many friends, as well as by her immediate relatives. Her husband, George Fisher, who died about seven years ago, was one of Miami county's most substantial and best known citizens.
She leaves four sons, who are Rev. Lee Fisher, of South Whitley, Ind., and Peter, Henry and William, of Miami county. She was buried in the German Baptist cemetery at Mexico, at 11 o'clock Sunday morning. No funeral service was held on account of the illness of her son Henry.
