Amelia Bronich, 96, died Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013, in Eveleth.

Amelia was born Aug. 17, 1916, to Frank and Veronica (Vidasich) Fisher in Biwabik. She lived in Biwabik her whole life. Amelia was a hard working child of the Depression. Her life encompassed many different jobs. She did housecleaning as a youth, and cooked for much of her life at various locations including the Midway Cafe in Biwabik and the Biwabik school until her "retirement." Amelia then worked providing home health care into her eighties until she was sidelined by knee surgery.

For Amelia, having a garden was more than a hobby, it was a way of life. She grew, cooked and canned anything that could be grown, and even a few things that couldn't in a northern climate. She only quit gardening when she was physically unable to anymore. She was a faithful member of St. John's Catholic Church.

She is survived by a daughter, Lois Ferguson; grandchildren: David (Lori) Ferguson, Dale (Beth) Staplin, and Brian (Vicky) North; nine great-grandchildren; and a great-great-grandchild.

Amelia was preceded in death by her husband, Michael Bronich; three brothers; five sisters; and a son, George.

Interment will be at Lakeside Cemetery
