— WATSONTOWN — Elsie M. Fisher, 87, of Watsontown, passed away on Monday, Dec. 6, 2010, at her home.

She was born May 11, 1923, at the Hower-Slote House at the Fort Freeland site, now a part of the Warrior Run High School, a daughter of the late J. Donald and Margaret (Ranck) Bryson. She was married for 50 years to Glenn M. Fisher who preceded her in death on June 12, 1994.

Elsie's love of flower gardening was showcased on the property of her farmhouse and more recently at her home on Fisher Drive. She loved playing card games and taught her children and grandchildren to play when they were quite young. She belonged to a local pinochle card club for many years.

Surviving are two sons, Dale D. Fisher of Binghamton, N.Y., and Larry L. Fisher, of Watsontown; one daughter, Ginger G. Fisher, of Lancaster; four grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; one brother, Joseph N. Bryson, of Lancaster; and two sisters, Betty Baker, of Lititz and Maxine Huffman, of Dewart.
