Ivanelle Fishel 94, of Elkader, passed away peacefully March 5, 2018, at the Elkader Care Center.

She received her education to the eighth grade at the Communia Country School. She was a lifetime member of Peace United Church of Christ in Elkader.

On September 15, 1948, she was united in marriage to Robert L. Fishel at Frieden’s Evangelical Church in Elkader by Rev. Paul Kitterer.

She enjoyed dairy farming, raising many chickens, selling eggs, gardening, flowers and especially loved her kitties.

Those left to cherish her memories are her children, JoAnn and Kenneth, plus relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband and daughter.

Private funeral services were held at Peace United Church of Christ in Elkader with Rev. Jon Haack officiating.
