Fisher, David Cyrus – Obituary

David Cyrus Fisher died at Ontario, Oregon, on Saturday, April 17, 1915, aged 75 years, 7 moths and 8 days.

The deceased had gone to Ontario to pay a long deferred visit to his son, Guy Fisher, and shortly after his arrival there he was stricken with his last illness. For a time hopes were entertained for his recovery but he never grew sufficiently strong to return to his home.

For many years he had been a resident of the Grande Rode Valley, where he was well and favorably known, and his death is mourned by a large circle of relatives and friends.

Surviving him are his wife and children: Mrs. Elizabeth Fisher of Cove, Oregon; Charles Fisher of Union, Oregon; Guy Fisher of Ontario; Otis Fisher and Mrs. Mattie Henley of Portland; Mrs. Leonard Couch of Messrs; Hiram and Harvey Fisher of Wallowa; Mrs. Mary McKennon of Pine Valley, Oregon; and Mrs. Phelma Forman of Ft. Bidwell, California.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Cullison at the home of his foster daughter, Mrs. Cora B. Busick, of this city. Interment was in the Union cemetery.

La Grande Newspaper dated April 21, 1915.
