THE WESTERN STAR, 6 April 1917

Mrs. W. E. Fisher, one of the pioneer settlers near Wilmore, died at her home in Wilmore on Thursday morning of last week. She is survived by her husband, three sons, George, Dan and Barney, and by two daughters, Mrs. Bart Newlin of Del Norte, Colo., and Miss India Fisher of Wilmore. One daughter, Mrs. Lulu Walden, died in McDonald, Kans., about 12 years ago.

Miss Nancy Margaret Barnhiser was born in Hamilton co., Ind., on January 11, 1852. On November 28, 1871, she was united in marriage with Wm. E. Fisher. Nearly 30 years ago, Mr. and Mrs. Fisher came west and settled on a claim 4 miles northwest of Wilmore, this county, and there they continued to live.

Mrs. Fisher was a devoted wife and mother, a kind neighbor and a true friend to all. For many years she had lived a consistent christian life. At an early age she united with the Methodist Episcopal church and she
never faltered in her devotion to her Christ.

Funeral services were held in the Christian church in Wilmore at 2:30 p.m. on Friday. Rev. Ralph W. Wyrick, pastor of the M. E. church of this city, preaching the sermon. A large number of the neighbors and friends of the deceased were present at the funeral services. With each there was a feeling of sadness, because all felt that a good woman and a true friend had passed away.
