Jean Arlene Fisher of Warsaw, Indiana passed away at 3:02 p.m. on Tuesday, January 17, 2023 at Peabody Retirement Community in North Manchester, Indiana at the age of 91.
She was born on March 30, 1931 in Huntington, Indiana as one of six children born to Mary Edith (Quinn) and Emerson Rittenhouse. On August 29, 1946, at the young age of 15 she married the love of her life, Robert Daniel Fisher in New Albany, Indiana. They were blessed with five children, many memories created during their lives and celebrated 63 years of marriage before Robert passed away on December 12, 2009.
Jean has lived in Kosciusko County for 50 years where she and her husband founded Rocking R. Hobby Horse out of their home. For over 30 years they built children’s rocking horses that have been enjoyed by many. Jean loved gospel music, adult coloring books and always kept busy doing her many puzzles. Most of all she simply loved being a mom, and later in life she loved being a grandmother. She will forever be remembered as a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who will be dearly missed.
She leaves behind two sons, Bob (Kay) Fisher (St. Cloud, Florida); Joe Fisher (Warsaw, Indiana); two daughters, Roberta Sims (South Whitley, Indiana); Judy (Bobby) Stevens (Davenport, Florida); eight grandchildren, seventeen great-grandchildren, and ten great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert, son, Richard, two brothers, and three sisters.
