  2. Mrs. Fisch, you made riding to Vianney so much fun for all of us high school boys. Thanks for all the laughs. Have a German Brew with Henry and my parents up there in heaven.

  3. Dear Fischer family! We were sorry to hear of Rita’s passing! She was the dearest& sweetest person ! Loved to talk about her grandchildren. Good times were had with Rita & Henry& Fred & Geslind! We learned how to make sauerbraten!! I was always humbled by her gentle goodness! We will keep you in our hearts, thoughts &! Prayers.

  4. My memory goes back when the boys were in grade school. Being room mother and lunchroom duty with Rita. We did three years of cub scouts together. Those were the good old days.
    Since I’ve moved from St Matthias we have mainly seen each other at funerals.
    Sorry I could not make her funeral. She is in my prayers.
