Pioneer Woman
Dies In California

     Word came today of the death, in Santa Barbara, Cal., of Mrs. Ollie E. Fisk, long and familiarly known as one of the pioneers of Boise valley and a resident of both Parma and Caldwell.
     Mrs. Fisk, widow of Albert G. Fisk, had resided at 920 Blaine street for 1927 until this past winter, when she sojourned to the home of her daughter, Mrs. Seth Langdon, of Santa Barbara.
     Born June 7, 1869, at Saybrook, Ill., Mrs. Fisk was married in 1891 and continued to live in Illinois until 1904, when she and her husband moved to Parma.  After the sale of their ranch at Parma in 1927, they purchased property in Caldwell, where Mrs. Fisk continued to live after the death of her husband in 1938.  Although she kept up her many activities as long as possible, especially in the Baptist church, of which she was a member, ill health this past winter forced her to withdraw from them and seek a warmer climate.
     She is survived by two daughters, Mrs. S. F. Greenfield of Caldwell; Mrs. Seth C. Langdon of Santa Barbara, Cal.; and a son, C. E. Fisk, of Stanfield, Ore.  Grandchildren surviving are; Albert Ledbetter, King City, Cal.; Wanda Ledbetter, Seattle Wash.; Leona Langdon and Reed Langdon of Santa Barbara, Cal.; Stanley Fisk and Adarene Fisk, of Stanfield, Ore.
     Graveside services will be held at the Parma cemetery at 10 o'clock Tuesday morning, with the Rev. E. W. Stuchbery of the Caldwell Baptist church officiating.  Arrangements will be in charge of Peckham's chapel.
