Eve Marie Fischer was born January 24, 1928 in Amidon, ND to Anna (Wenzel) Buzalsky and Frank Buzalsky. Eve entered her family of 4 siblings, and was soon joined by her little sister Shirley, to begin a loving and hardworking farm life near Bowman, ND. Eve spoke fondly of her life on the farm, proud of her contribution to her family caring for livestock, bailing hay, and being a crack shot with a rifle acquiring animal hides for needed extra income.
After high school Eve worked as a bank teller and as a receptionist at a medical practice in North Dakota. She then traveled to the east coast becoming a New York model. She returned to North Dakota to marry Albert Carl Fischer of Strasburg, ND on May 1, 1952. They welcomed their son Tom into their home in Fargo, ND on 10/21/1954. They relocated to Minot, ND where son Gary was born on 12/9/1959. They then returned to Fargo where Eve pursued many careers including selling Avon; working in Special Education and Preschool for the Fargo School System; assistant manager at the Kristen’s Diet Center; and as a bailiff at District Court in Fargo, ND. Eve was active in her church and an organizer of the church prayer telephone chain for decades. Eve will be remembered as a hardworking independent woman being a widow for 40 years, having a great sense of humor, and being a loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother.
Eve is survived by her son, Gary Fischer (Barb) of Onalaska, WI; two grandchildren Daniel Fischer of Onalaska, WI and Jaime O’Neill (Mike) of Fargo, ND; two great-grandchildren John O’Neill and Andrew O’Neill; and sister Shirley (Bowman, ND).
