Edith E. Fischer, age 90, of Elgin, formerly of Ormond Beach, FL, passed away Saturday, December 5, 2015, at Tower Hill Healthcare Center, Elgin, IL, where she had made her home for the last eleven years.

She was united in marriage to George Fischer on November 14, 1946, in the British West Indies where George was stationed at the time with the U.S. Navy. They were blessed with four daughters, Carol, Susan, Ellen and June.

Edith made a life out of keeping house and raising her family, making sure each house was a home, filled with love, laughter and thousands of memories. She kept busy in the garden and was a capable seamstress, making clothes for family, as well as needle point. She sang in the local Presbyterian church choir. The summers always brought road trips and camping in the fabled pink Rambler Station Wagon, sans air conditioning, that logged miles throughout the U.S. Edith loved music, especially during the Big Band Era as well as those major musicals and show tunes that were all the rage in her younger years.

She is survived by four daughters: Carol (Roger) Steffan, Susan (Ted) Bethke, Ellen Kilday and June (Steven) Lang; Nine grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her husband George in February of 2014.
