Irene Fisher, 95, of Rochester, MN, formerly of Schroeder, MN, died Monday, April 8, 2019.
Irene was born June 9, 1923 in Duluth, MN to Amund and Lava (Carlson) Hovland. She graduated from Grand Marais High School in 1939 then followed her passion and attended beauty school in Duluth, MN. On October 11, 1941, she married Darrell W. Fisher. The couple moved to California then later returned to Grand Meadow, MN to start a family.
Survivors include her two daughters, Pam (John) Diesman of Watertown, MN, and Deb Tushaus of Rochester, MN; six grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and one sister, Betty. She is preceded in death by her husband, one brother, Art; and one son, Ron.
Irene found joy and meaning in life through her family and friends. Daily and weekly visits from her daughters, grandchildren & great-grandchildren were her highlight. Then each month she would join in with her neighbors hosting community potlucks at the senior building in which she lived. This was a chance for her to exercise one of her greatest passions, cooking. Irene enjoyed playing cards, crocheting, shopping at the local farmers market, shopping, going out for dinner, watching the Minnesota Twins (win), and her favorite channel, the Game Show Network.

My deepest sympathy to the entire family on Irene's passing. She was a dear, sweet person and I was very lucky to have had the chance to get to know her. I know she thought very much of her family and was proud of all the pictures of everyone that she had on her refrigerator and in the picture frames. I will miss her smile.
We will miss Irene Anna Fisher but she has this amazing family made up of loving, caring, compassionate children, grand children and great grandchildren she has raised. Through them Irene will live on. She was an amazing woman!
So sad for the loss of your mother and grandmother. She was blessed with a wonderful family she enjoyed her life to the fullest. Irene will be missed by everyone that knew this sweet lady.
