     Sherry Ruth Fischer, 73, of Amenia, ND died unexpectedly on January 8th, 2021,at Essentia in Fargo, ND from an extensive brain hemorrhage.

     Sherry was born Shirley Ruth Larson January 12th, 1947 in Ada, MN. She started first grade in Minot, ND.  During her elementary years, Sherry learned, very quickly, how to play accordion and played at a lot of church events.  She attended high school in Bismarck, ND.

     Sherry had an excellent work ethic and enjoyed working throughout her lifetime.  Her longest job was when she was director for Meals on Wheels in Hazen, ND.  She worked at the Fargo Public Library.  She worked at grocery stores in New Leipzig, ND and Casselton, ND. She worked at MVNA as a receptionist in Minneapolis, MN.  Her favorite job of all was being a mom and grandma.

     Sherry had an exceptional talent for drawing free hand and oil paintings.  She loved to garden and plant flowers of any kind so much that she would share with anyone.  Sherry loved to attend church.  Her faith was especially important to her.  She went on two mission trips to Columbia and China.  Her favorite part was rocking the babies in the orphanages.  She absolutely loved to talk and visit with anyone.  She was never short of anything to tell you and sometimes she would tell you twice.  If she called you on the phone, you could count on needing a few hours.

     Sherry is survived by her two sons:  Richy and Anita Krueger of West Fargo, ND and Donald and Heidi Krueger of Amenia, ND; seven grandsons: Daniel and Andrea, Aaron and Asia, Josh, Joe, Trenton, Hunter and Zachary; three brothers: Leon and RoseAnn Larson of Belfield, ND, Glenn and Phyllis Larson of Wilton, ND, Titus Larson of Mapleton, ND;  many special nieces and nephews.  Sherry will be greatly missed by all her family.

     She was preceded in death by two sons: Frederick Donald Krueger Jr. and Randy Lee Wittmaier; her parents Mervin and Ruth; three brothers: Melvin, Roland and Dennis. 

     A celebration of life will be held in the summer.  Invites will go out to all family members.

     Her final resting place will be Ada Cemetery, Ada, Minnesota
