Obituary of Peter M. Fisher 1859 - 1919
The following obit was found in the Fisher Family Bible. It appears to
have belonged to Henry Fisher who was the son of George and Barbara Moss
Fisher. This obit was glued to the inside of the Bible. [Terri Saylor]
The Passing of Rev. P.M. Fisher
Peter M. Fisher, George and Barbara Fisher, deceased, was
born July 15th, 1859, departed this life November 16th, 1919 aged 60
years, 4 months and 1 day. He was born and reared in the vicinity of
Mexico, Indiana. On March 5th, 1883 he was united in marriage to Alice
A. Stowman, who survives, and to this union were born four children;
Mrs. Inez Cline of Balsam Lake, Wisconsin; Omer P. Fisher of Chili,
Indiana Carl C. Fisher of Mexico, Indiana and Mrs. Mary Anspach of
Ashland, Ohio. He also leaves eight grandchildren and two brothers.
He became a charter member of the Mexico Brethren church in 1888.
In 1901 he was ordained to the ministry by Elder G.W. Rench. His work
and counsel in the home church through all the years have been
invaluable. Besides a number of churches which he served as pastor he
organized the First Brethren church at Peru, Indiana, in 1914 and
donated his services for several months until a pastor could be secured.
He exemplified Christ in both conduct and conversation and sought
always to overcome evil by doing good. In both public and private life
he endeavored to honor the Christ he loved. He was personally interested
in public welfare and could always be depended on to help every
enterprise that aimed to protect and uplift humanity. His neighbors will
ever remember him as a man of ready hand and kind heart, helping in
every time of need. The church has lost a loving brother, a zealous and
loyal worker. But he will be missed most in his home for he was a loving
husband and a kind and tender father.
Brother Fisher was sick less than a day as the result of a stroke
of paralysis which occurred while he was performing a marriage ceremony.
The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. G.W. Rench of South Bend,
Indiana, who had been his pastor for many years. He was assisted by Rev.
L.W. Ditch of Mexico, Indiana; Rev. G.C. Carpenter of Peru, Indiana;
Rev. Charles A. Bame of North Manchester, Indiana and the writer.
Besides the above who assisted in the services, the following
ministerial brethren were present, - I.B. Wright, W.E. Ronk, Kenneth
Ronk, A.T. Wirick, C.A. Stewart, John M. Fox, C.C. Grisso and L.A.
Myers. There were also two Church of the Brethren ministers present,
making a total of fifteen in all. There was also a large congregation of
relatives and friends present to pay their last tributes of respect ot
this noble man. It was said to be one of the largest funerals ever held
