Mr. Fisher was born August 25, 1925.  He has been a resident of Golden Living at Lakeview since February 2002.  His special friend and companion at the nursing home for many years was Yvonne Bethold.  At the nursing home they shared their final years together finding peace, contentedness, humor, laughter and companionship. 

He worked his earlier years at Swift, farmed and ranched.  Elmer loved listening to music, especially Polka’s and accordion music.  He loved to talk about horses and cattle he cared for over the years.  He loved teasing visitors and visiting children who would stop by to say hello to the residents.  In his last years at the nursing home he loved to color pictures and colored hundreds of them beautifully.

He became loved over the years by staff, residents and those who stopped to say hello.  His special friends, Richard and Barbara Bethold enjoyed visiting with him every few days over the many years.
