Birth: Jul. 6, 1860
New Richland
Waseca County
Minnesota, USA
Death: Feb. 21, 1944
Lewis and Clark County
Montana, USA

Mrs. Marie C. Fiske, beloved Helena matron for many years, died in St. Peter's hospital. She had been in ill health during her last three years, but her condition only became critical about a week before she died. She was 83.

Funeral services were held in the Opp and Conrad chapel, the Very Rev. Charles A. Wilson, dean of St. Peter's pro-cathedral, officiating. Pallbearers were C. N. McCoy, Harry Hennessy, E. M. Johnson, Fred Johnson, J. R. Wine and Charles E. Knight.

Marie was born in New Richland, MN, July 6, 1860. She married Edgar Fiske in Waseca, MN, June 1, 1880. She and her husband moved to Helena in 1888. Edgar, a former Helena contractor, died in 1930. Since that time, Marie resided in Helena with her daughter, Mrs. LaNita Rogers, 122 Twelfth avenue. From 1939 to 1940, the 2 of them lived in Butte.

Mrs. Fiske was an active member of St. Peter's pro-cathedral for many years and was a member of the Chancel Guild.

In addition to her daughter LaNita, she was survived by another daughter, Mrs. W. W. (Florence?) Bowman of San Rafael, CA; two granddaughters, Mrs. James Curtin of Alameda, CA, and Mrs. Vernon Young of Great Falls, MT; a brother, Fred Knudsen of Umatilla, OR; and a great-granddaughter in Great Falls.

In addition to her husband and the 3 other childen listed below, I assume she was also preceded in death by their son Lawrence (1880-?) since he was not listed as a survivor.
