Ida Genevieve (Jenny) Fischer was born on November 22, 1920 to John and Maude (Brooks) Melvin in Belle Fourche, South Dakota.

They eventually settled in Black Hawk, South Dakota where they raise their family. Jenny was a homemaker and even when times were hard, she always managed to make a meal out of the simplest ingredients. She will be missed for her breads and cinnamon rolls among other things.

After moving to Chappell, Nebraska, one of her favorite things to do was rocking babies at the daycare. She also looked forward to going to church on Sundays and seeing her many friends. She had a very strong faith in the Lord.

Survivors include two sons: Elroy (Wanda) Fischer of Chappell, NE and Ron (Lori) Fischer of Shelby, NE; three daughters: Nancy (Ted) Waugh of Hershey, NE, JoAnn (Glenn) McDaniel of Deadwood, SD and Rosemary Farel of Chappell, NE. She is also survived by 14 Grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren and 5 great, great-grandchildren who will miss her dearly.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Pius in 2000, her five brothers and sisters and a great-grandson Liam.
