Irmgard Fisher Cook of Waco, Texas passed away due to a long-term illness at the age of 85 years. Her life will be remembered and celebrated in a service Friday, September 15 at 6pm in the chapel of Waco Memorial Funeral Home. Visitation will follow the service until 8pm.
Irmgard Fisher was born in Neu Ulm Germany, to a father, who was a cabinet maker, George Fischer , and a mother, who was a homemaker, Anna Kristina Seitzinger.
Around the age of 21 years old, she came to the United States. She married Ernest Limon and started a family in Austin, Texas.
Throughout her life, she owned an upholstery business, and worked tirelessly in that field. Throughout her life, she loved being a seamstress, and helping others. The last job that she worked was for Spenco Medical in Waco for many years. She loved working at Spenco and gained many friends throughout her employment. She was also a member of many German clubs.
In her younger years, she love to go dancing with friends, and as she got older, she loved going on weekend trips, seeing new places, and doing new things.
Throughout the last many years of her life, she struggled with auto immune disease which made it difficult for her to work and to have the quality of life that she so desperately wanted.
She had an extreme love for wildlife. She loved to watch the birds and squirrels, and over the last few years had trained squirrels to come and eat out of her hands while sitting on her front porch or patio.
She is survived by son and daughter, Ernesto Michael Limon and Brenda Limon Cole; granddaughter Kristina Alyssa Cole; and an adopted granddaughter, Adrianna Monique Espinoza.
She was preceded in death by many friends, and by her father, George Fischer and mother, Anna Seitzinger Fischer, as well as her son, Dino Ralph Limon.
Irmgard left this earth surrounded by love from her daughter, granddaughter and adopted granddaughter.
The family would like to send a heartfelt thank you to the amazing nurses at Providence Hospital on 3-N, the nurses on the fourth floor at Providence Park, and Providence Hospice for all their love and care.
For everyone’s prayers and thoughts for us we thank you and could not be more blessed.
