Elsa H. Fischbach, formerly of the Westmont section in Haddon Township, died Thursday Feb. 7, 2013. She was 93. Born in Germany, she immigrated at sixteen and graduated from Glassboro High School prior to moving to Collingswood. She married F. Joseph Fischbach in 1942 and for sixty-three years she was lovingly referred to as his "Stubborn Dutchman." Through the years she was an active member of St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church and the Order of the Eastern Star in Collingswood. She enjoyed gardening and was a caring neighbor to all who knew her.

She was the devoted mother of Carol Anderson and Frederick Fischbach (Maureen); grandmother to Jill Anderson, Lauren Shand (Craig), Jaime Derringer (Jordan), Daniel Fischbach and great-grandmother to Colin Shand, Chloe Shand and Amelia Derringer.

Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend a viewing on Tuesday from 9:30am-11:00am, followed by a service at Eichel Funeral Home, 8323 Maple Ave., Pennsauken. Interment will be at Locustwood Cemetery, Cherry Hill.

The family wishes to thank Collingswood Manor for their care and comfort during the time she spent as a resident with them and Samaritan Hospice.
