Cleora Fisk

    Cleora Campbell Fisk of Parma died early Monday, October 23, 1995, at the Nampa Care Center.  She died of complications of age.  She was 104.
    A memorial service will be held Friday, October 27, 1t 11 a.m. at Kirkpatick Memorial Community Church in Parma, with the Rev. David Kegley officiating.  Services are under direction of Dakan Funeral Chapel, Caldwell.
    Mrs. Fisk was born December 29, 1890, near Bloomington, Ill. to Bryson Monroe and Mary Dodds Campbell.  She and her family first moved to Indianola, Iowa; and from there to Parma in 1906.  Mrs. Fisk was the first graduate from Parma High School in 1908.  She then passed the examination allowing her to teach elementary school.  She taught in Apple Valley and Parma until 1919.  Mrs. Fisk thoroughly enjoyed teaching, and continued to teach after her marriage in 1914 - something unheard of in that day.
    Mrs. Fisk served on the Parma School Board for 24 years, many of those years as Clerk, and was instrumental in beginning the school hot lunch program.  Mrs. Fisk pursued a career in community activities.  Among these, she was a longtime member of the Kirkpatrick Memorial Community Church, serving as Elder and Clerk of the Session, and President of the Women's Association; she was Past Matron and a 50-year member of the Order of Eastern Star; and a member of P.E.O. and Senior Citizens.
    She married Roger Lee Fisk of Parma on June 11, 1914, and they celebrated their 50th Anniversary in 1964.
    Mrs. Fisk is survived by a son and daughter-in-law, Chesley and Irma Fisk of Nampa; a daughter, Ruth Elliott of Vancouver, WA; and a son, Roger Lee Fisk Jr., also of Nampa; seven grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
    She was preceded in death by her husband; two sisters, Ruth Allen Clonninger and Kate Willis; and two brothers, J.W. "Bill" and Dale D. "Jack" Campbell.
    The family suggests memorials be made to the Kirkpatrick Memorial Community Church, Parma, Idaho 83660.
