M  Fisher picture

Margarete Fisher was born on January 5, 1924 in Wangerin, Germany.  She settled in rural Dawes County in 1951, with her husband Fritz and their three children, Karin, Joe, and Inez.  Having lost their son Joe, late summer 1954, the family of four moved to town in 1957 and into the big green house on the corner of 4th and Mears in 1958, where she resided until her passing.

Widowed young in 1967, she supplemented her income and filled her life caring for the children of others such as Sparky and Inge Adams son and the two daughters of Bill and Carola Winkle to name only two.  They were like family to her, the only “grandchildren” she had and remained friends to this day.

Margarete was an early member and faithful attendee as well as a contributing member with years of Alter Guild service as Immanuel Lutheran.

Saturday night dances at the VFW were a favorite with Sunday morning church attendance followed by Sunday Dinner at eh Chuck Wagon a fulfilling routine for many years.

She is survived by her daughters, Karin Fischer and Inez Buck (with Peter Bahr) all of Chadron.

A memorial has been established for Immanuel Lutheran Church or the Chadron Volunteer Fire Department.  Donations may be sent to Chamberlain Chapel, PO Box 970, Chadron, NE  69337
