Lucille was born Sept. 19, 1920 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to John and Louise Elizabeth (n??e Mueller) Barth. She attended one-room schools in Racine county, Wisconsin. On September 26, 1942 she married Verland Fischer in Saint Martins, Wisconsin. Together they had three children, Joynell, Gary and Rod. Lucille enjoyed listening to Verland play banjo and guitar in a Wisconsin band. Once Verland left the band, Lucille spent time in her favorite activity dancing with Verland at many social events throughout their 56-year marriage.
