Mrs. Elizabeth R. Fisher, wife of Judge J.W. Fisher, died at the family residence, corner of Twentieth street and Warren avenue, yesterday morning.

Mrs. Fisher was 76 years of age at the time of her death and although she had been suffering from the infirmities of age for some time there was no indication of her death at so early a period. Tuesday evening she retired to her bed at the usual time in as good health as could be expected and as she did not get up at the usual time her daughter Sadie went to call her only to find that the dread messenger had called her and she was gone. A physician was summoned but life was extinct and he gave heart failure as the immediate cause of the death.

The deceased has been a resident of this city for twenty-two years, coming with her husband from the state of Pennsylvania. She was distinctively a home woman. She loved to care for her children and rarely went out into society and seemed to have no love for association except such as was accorded her by the fireside in her own home.

Besides her aged husband she leaves a family of three sons and two daughters to mourn her loss. T.J. Fisher, Mrs. J.W. Bruner and Miss Sadie Fisher reside in this city. One son lives in Denver and Thomas M. who is special agent of the treasury department at Fort Townsend, Washington.

The funeral arrangements are not all completed but it is thought it will take place from St. Mark's church on Friday afternoon.
