In 1922, Merriel Fischer was the last born of ten children, to Rev. Edward and Sophia (deVedig) Fischer. Those that were born before her were: Ruth Jenny, Ernestine, George, Edward, Sophia, Irene, Aletha, Hans(John), and Olin.

Aunt Merriel was musically talented, and played piano for church services at many different times thruout her life. At home she would play "Boogie-woogie" until G-ma would tell her to stop, and please play the kind of music that Sophie played (classical). (Little did G-ma know but that Sophie (my mother) could play "Five-foot-two, Eyes of Blue" like a 'house-a-fire'.)

Aunt Merriel was like a big sister to me in my early teens. She taught me many things, like using fingernail polish. ( G-ma put a stop to that.) Uncle Pete gave me my first beer--one inch in a glass. I didn't like it, but kept sipping until gone. So many happy childhood memories of my Aunt Merriel !
