Jean E. Fish

Jean E. Fish, age 73, died on Friday, May 8, 2020. She was born March 18, 1947 to Lowell and Valeda (Kellar) Carlson. Jean is survived by her son, Ryan (Sonya) Fish, grandchildren, Emmett and Sofia Fish, sister, Kathy (Carlson) Baker and brother James (Sylvia) Carlson, and many nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles. She also left behind many good friends, "the Vegas Girls", acquaintances and co-workers. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Russell Fish, daughter Tara, infant son, Joshua, and her parents Lowell and Valeda Carlson.

Jean attended elementary and high school in Rhinelander and graduated in 1965. She married Russ, her high school sweetheart, on March 30, 1968. They enjoyed 52 years of marriage. She had many jobs throughout her career. Most were working as support in our junior high school, high school and then Nicolet College. She also taught many computer classes at Nicolet. Along the way she met and touched many people. She always taught her children and family the importance of continually learning throughout their lives. Jean is remembered fondly for her big smile, cheerfulness and willingness to help others.

Jean was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She would travel whenever needed to help out with her grandchildren. She enjoyed going to Vegas with her friends and seeing the Packers at Lambeau. Jean was always fun to be with. She also enjoyed the outdoors whether it was fishing, hunting, camping or riding in the UTV. She enjoyed it even more when it was with her family. Her sister Kathy was her best friend and "big sister". Jean is now on another journey and will be joining Russ, Tara, Joshua and her parents. She was very strong and handled adversity without complaint throughout her life. Jean will be missed.

There will be no formal services for Jean at this time. You may leave your private condolences for the Fish family at The Carlson Funeral Home (715-369-1414) is handling the arrangements for the Fish family.
