Berenice Louise Fisch(November 17, 1925 - December 3, 2013)

Berenice Louise Fisch November 17, 1925 December 3, 2013 It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Berenice, beloved wife, mother and "Nana". She was predeceased by her son Wayne Johnson, her mother Helen Hicks and her father Bert Leonard. Berenice is survived by her husband Sig Fisch, her daughter Joan (Michael) Maguire, her grandchildren, Erin Maguire, Amber Maguire, Todd (Brenda) Johnson, Kristie (Hugh) Delwo and her great granddaughters, Montana, Morgan, Jordis, and Halle. Berenice was born in Saskatchewan but shortly after, her parents moved to the Tete Jaune/Shere area to homestead and work on the railroad. Berenice grew up there and enjoyed a simple but exciting life on the new frontier. Together with her good friends Tommy and Fern, they were the three musketeers. From there she moved about BC and spent the war years in the Vancouver area. She attended the BC Hairdressing School and came to Prince George after the war. She had two children, Wayne and Joan from her first marriage. She met Sig and they married a few years later. They have lived happily together in Prince George where Berenice ran a hairdressing business for many years. Together with her husband Sig, they volunteered their time to their community as members of the Loyal Order of the Moose, as BC Provincial Park Host Volunteers, members of the Old Time Fiddlers Association, and the CNIB. She loved Country and Western music and especially dancing to the music of the Old Time Fiddlers. She spent summers in their RV, travelling to different hot-springs around BC, going camping or fishing at the lake with family. Berenice loved to garden and grow veggies, small fruit and lots of flowers. We would like to thank the wonderful and caring staff at Jubilee Lodge which has been Berenice's home for the past year and we will miss going to see her there and visiting with everyone. Thanks also to the nurses and staff of the Family Medicine Unit of UHNBC, the staff of Home and Community Care Placement, Home Support Care and Occupational Therapy who helped Nana and us all close to her through the transition to Extended Care, which helped her remain in her own home a little bit longer. You will all be fondly remembered. No service by request. A Memorial Tea will be held to celebrate her life on Wednesday, December 11, 2013 between 1:00 and 4:00 P.M. at the Moose Hall at 663 Douglas Street, Prince George, BC. Please come and visit.
