Mrs. Nannie Omsby
Fisher, daughter of John and Martha Utley was born August 18, 1870, and passed away at her home in Louisville, KY. November 30, 1937, aged 67 years.
She was united in marriage to William Fisher September 16. 1888,
and to this union two daughters were born, Cora and Estel
the latter having died when two years of age.
She united with the Primitive Baptist church at this place shortly
after her marriage and remained steadfast in that faith through the years. She
spent all her early life here where her kind and friendly disposition won for her
many friends. The last fifteen years, she spent in Louisville but she enjoyed coming back here to
visit her friends and attend the church she loved. She was a kind and loving
wife and mother and when health permitted, was always willing to render any
service possible to those who needed her help. She suffered a paralytic stroke about
two years ago and has been in poor health since bearing her affliction with
patience and Christian resignation.
She leaves to mourn her going away the husband, a daughter, Mrs.
Emmett Tucker, with whom she and Mr Fisher, lived, a
brother, William Omsby of Mt. Vernon, three grandchildren, Mrs. Venessa Travis, Mrs. Sylvia Ashby, and Mrs. Marjorie Board,
of Louisville, KY, and four great grand-children beside
other relatives and friends. Funeral services were conducted at Griffin in the Primitive Baptist church Thursday
afternoon and were in charge of Elder Barnett, of Eldorado, Ill., with internment in Mt. Pleasant cemetery.
Those accompanying the remains here from Louisville were the husband, the daughter and
granddaughter, Mrs. Sylvia Ashby.
