Mrs. W. G. Fisher

Etoile Marie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. B. Wenrick, was born in Darke County, Ohio, August 7, 1899, and passed away at the Memorial Hospital in Piqua, Ohio, Sunday, September 27, 1931, aged 32 years, one month and 21 days. Her entire life was spent in the vicinities of Bradford and Covington.  At the age of 16 she became a member of the Covington Church of the Brethren, and faithfully served for several years as a teacher in the Primary Department of the Sunday School.  She graduated from the Covington High School with the class of 1918. Following her graduation she enrolled in Manchester College of North Manchester, Indiana, to prepare herself for teaching in the public schools. She taught for three years in the schools of Staunton and Washington Townships rendering a service which was very commendable.  On October 1, 1921, she was united in marriage to Warren G. Fisher of Covington, Ohio. To this union two children were born: Byron W. aged 9 years and Virginia Midola aged 7 years. Besides a loving husband and her two children she is survived by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. S. B. Wenrick of Covington, Ohio; two brothers, Raymond Wenrick of London, Ohio and David Leslie of Kirksville, Missouri; grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. D. G. Wenrick of Covington, Ohio; and a large number of other relatives and friends.  In the last year of her life many of the joys of the home had to be sacrificed because of her illness, but she was very patient in her suffering. She always thought of her home and family first and was constantly doing little things of helpfulness.  In her passing the husband loses a loving companion; the children a much needed counselor and mother; the parents an affectionate daughter; and the community a loved and loyal citizen. She hath done what she could. Our loss is her gain.
