Christine E. Fisher
March 04, 1921 - November 13, 2020
Christine attended nursing school at Blessing Hospital in Quincy. When she graduated, she went to work for Dr. Ross in Golden, Illinois, then served as the school nurse at Carthage College in Carthage, Illinois, where she earned a bachelor's degree. She moved to Joliet, Illinois where she worked as a public health nurse and met George Fisher, a Caterpillar Tractor Company engineer. George and Christine were married, on September 15, 1956, at St. John's Lutheran Church in Quincy, Illinois. Christine was a lifelong member of St. John's where she was baptized.
Christine was also a beloved kindergarten teacher for many years. She taught at Calvary Academy in South Holland, Illinois, and Marquette Manor Baptist Academy.
Christine experienced an amazing life, spanning nearly a century--from war to peace, from chalk slate to internet, from post office to cell phone, from candlelight to LED, from horse and buggy to space travel, from the Black Sox scandal to the Cubs winning the world series, from Warren G. Harding to Donald J. Trump. What a wild ride!
