Agnes Florence Fischer was born Feb. 2, 1926 in St. Paul to Peter and Ann (Schuller) McClellan. She was raised, attended school, and lived her early years in St. Paul. On Nov. 10, 1945 she married Harold Fischer in Maplewood. They lived on Harold’s family farm in Bradford Township in rural Isanti. They operated the family farm and “Aggie” worked out of the home at various jobs. She worked several years at the Isanti Variety Store where she enjoyed meeting many people. Over the years she was an active member of St. John Lutheran Church in Bradford and then at the church in Weber. Agnes also enjoyed being a “Red Hatter.” After her husband died in 1999 she remained on the farm for four years and then moved to an apartment in Isanti. Agnes moved to the nursing home a little over two years ago.
Agnes is survived by her son, Ronald (Kathleen) Fischer of St. Louis Park; grandson, David Fischer of St. Louis Park; brother, Douglas (Gladys) McClellan of St. Paul; and by other relatives and many friends.
