She loved gardening and entertaining and cooking especially holiday family dinners. Jean also loved to ride and raise horses and watch her children and grandchildren ride.

III and Vicki Fisher, Brady and Kristen Fisher, and Andrew and Wendy Fisher, all of Lewisburg, and Sara J. and Dean Hollenbach, of West Milton; 10 grandchildren, Morgan E. Fisher, Michael C.

Funeral services will be held at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at the John H. Shaw III Funeral Home, Market and Eighth streets, Lewisburg, with the Rev. John H. Shaw III, officiating.
