She had a love for the outdoors whether it be boating, hunting, spending time at her cabin or at the ocean with her family. 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.
