Jeannette E. Fisher

Feb. 1, 2010

Jeannette E. Fisher, a longtime member of the University Libraries staff at Western Michigan University, died Dec. 29, 2009, in Kalamazoo. She was 85.

Fisher was archives curator in University Archives and Regional History Collections. That position meant a great deal to her, as she was greatly interested in history and genealogy and loved old books.

Fisher came to WMU in 1970 and retired at the end of 1985 after nearly 16 years of service to the University. Previously, she was a secretary in Purdue University's athletic department and in the Ohio public school system.

She was married to John M. Fisher, associate professor emeritus of paper and printing science and engineering, who died March 1, 2009, in Kalamazoo.

A private memorial service for family members will be held in Indiana at a later date.
