Carol Jean Fisher (Hemphill) passed away peacefully, with her family by her side, on February 15, 2020 at Lexington Estates in Independence, IA, following a lengthy but courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

Carol was born June 26, 1937 in Walker, IA the daughter of Donald and Helen (Wachel) Hemphill. She attended the country schools in rural Walker, IA, and graduated from Walker High School in 1955. On February 23, 1958 Carol married Norman Fisher at Walker United Methodist Church and moved to Troy Mills, IA to farm and grow their family of three children Barbara, Diane, and Richard.

Carol was an active member of the Troy Mills Christian Church, serving as a Sunday school teacher. In addition, she was a leader for the Girl Scouts and for many years served the Iowa Pork Queen/Princess program at local and state levels. Above all, she was a dedicated wife, mother and grandmother. Her baked goods, especially decorated cakes, were often requested by family and friends alike.

Carol will be deeply missed by her husband of almost 62 years, Norman Fisher; three children and their spouses Barbara (John) Burke of Coggon, IA; Diane (Randy) McVey of Alburnett, IA; Richard (Beth) Fisher of Waukee, IA; five grandchildren, Trisha (Todd) Hittenmiller, Stacey Burke, Trent McVey, Jordan Fisher, and Morgan Fisher; two great-grandchildren, Brody and Breah; brother-in-law Russel (Janet) Fisher and family; brother Dale Hemphill and his family of Omaha, NE.

She was preceded in death by her parents, a grandson Logan McVey, and a niece Lori.

In lieu of flowers, those desiring may direct memorial contributions to the Alzheimer’s Association or a favorite charity of your choice.

A special thank you to everyone at Lexington Estate Long Term Care in Independence, IA; and especially to Linda and Becky for providing exceptional care and companionship.

A Funeral Service will be on Friday February 21, 2020 at 10:30 AM at the Troy Mills Christian Church in Troy Mills, IA with Rev. James Wolf officiating. Burial will be held at the Troy Mills Cemetery. A Visitation will be held from 4 PM until 8 PM on Thursday February 20, 2020 at the Troy Mills Christian Church.

I remember Norman and Carol well from my years in Troy Mills. I have been gone for many years but remember them both fondly because they were such nice people. I am deeply saddened by the loss that you and your family have encountered. My condolences.

My condolences to Carol's thoughts and prayers are with you! I got to know Carol back in the 80's when I worked at the Extension Office and always enjoyed visiting with her then and after that when I would see her. She was a great person and I always will remember her wonderful kind way that she had about her. Rest in peace Carol.
