OBITUARY - ALICE JOSEPHINE (JUDSON) FISHER

Alice FISHER passed away January 7, 2006 at the Eastern Star Masonic Home in Boone, Iowa. After celebrating her 100th birthday last month her health declined rapidly. Services will be Monday, January 16, at 10:30 a.m. at the First United Methodist Church in Boone with Rev. Phil WEBB officiating. There will be no visitation. Interment will be in Linwood Park Cemetery in Boone.

Memorials may be given to the First United Methodist Church or the City of Boone Johnny Appleseed, 923th 8th Street, Boone, IA 5003.

Alice Josephine was born December 15, 1905 in Mount Ayr, Iowa to Jesse and Ethel (DUNNING) JUDSON. She graduated from Simpson College and taught in Clear Lake High School for a year after graduation. In 1948 the FISHERS established a summer home on the south shore of Clear Lake. She spent nearly 50 summers there, where she enjoyed entertaining her family.

On December 27, 1927 she married Harold L. "Bud" FISHER, and the following year the couple moved to Boone where her husband coached and taught in the Boone High School. In 1935, he opened Fisher's Shoe Store, and in later years she would assist him in the operation of that business.

Three children were born to this union; Robert L. (Frances) of Boone, Alice "Bebe" ARBUCKLE of Lawrence, Kan., and David J. (Dorie) of West Des Moines, Iowa. Nine grandchildren survive; John FISHER, James FISHER, Judson FISHER, Dana McBRATNEY, David ARBUCKLE, Jess ARBUCKLE, Greg FISHER, Anne TRIPLETT, and Amy WAGLER, plus 24 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband; her sister, SaraBelle ATTEY, and a great-grandson.

Alice was active in community and church affairs. She was a member of Chapter JL, P.E.O., Junior Monday Study Club, an honorary member of Delta Kappa Gamma, and the Ames Pi Beta Phi Alum group. For years she was county chairman of the Red Cross volunteers, and she was recipient of the Everett BROWN award for community service. She taught Sunday School, and served on many church committees, being honored with life membership in the Methodist Women's organization.

She traveled extensively, visiting five of the continents. Music and the piano were important in her life, and until a week before she died she was enjoying playing the piano. She had a great love of the out of doors, and always commented on the beauty of the trees.

Stark-Welin Funeral Directors in Boone, Iowa, was in charge of arrangements.
