Frances H. Fischer, the daughter of Earl and Juanetta (Weaver) Poe, was born June 6, 1930, in Grant City, Missouri. She attended Watson and Tarkio, Missouri, schools.
On June 1, 1949, Frances was united in marriage to Carroll Fischer in Rock Port, Missouri. They made their home in the “Fischer Timber” west of Watson until 1953, when they moved to Easton, Missouri.
Frances loved all people. She was a devout Christian and a soul winner and wore out several cars hauling the local Easton children to and from Sunday school and Bible school at Midway Baptist Church south of Easton. Many of the youth she loved returned throughout the years to thank her and tell how they eventually were saved and are serving in their churches because of her influence. She also enjoyed playing the organ at church.
Frances loved yard work and always had beautiful gardens. For a short time, she worked at Woolworth’s department store. Frances passed away Sunday, February 2, 2020, at Mosaic Life Care, St. Joseph, Missouri, at the age of 89.
Besides her parents, Frances was preceded in death by one grandson, Russell Franklin; two great-grandchildren, Ethan Russell Owen and Kristen Gatton; and siblings, MaryAnn Rohwer, Robert Poe, Edgar Poe, and Earvin Poe. Survivors include husband Carroll Fischer, Easton; children, Danny (Winona) Fischer, Watson, Jeanie Ann Fischer, Easton, John (Donna) Fischer, Easton, and Pat Franklin, Princeton, Missouri; 14 grandchildren; numerous great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren; sisters, Viola Gough, Sara Thompson, and Ruby Feurt; and brother, Arthur Poe.
