Loraine Dianne Fischer

March 18, 1946 — May 3, 2024


“Old writers never die, they descend into a deep, dark “plot” & then lose their creative license! Yes, my license expired on May 3, 2024!

On March 18, 1946, the spring weather was perfect for planting peas, the Johnny Popper two cylinder chugged up and down the rows. A 1936 black Chevy coup churned up dust on the field access road. Wilma Molsee signaled Wayne to come. Their baby would arrive any minute.

Wayne and Wilma Molsee welcomed their first-born baby girl and named her, Loraine Dianne. Our family has always lived in Filer. My grandparents on both sides homesteaded the Filer track in 1906. I attended school in Filer and the very first classes offered by CSI, finishing at Boise State with a degree in elementary education. I was completing college in Boise when I received a call from the Twin Falls District Assistant Superintendent, Stautaher, asking me to sign a contract for $5,850.00. What was I going to do with all that money?

The next goal was to marry a farmer, but instead found a “mechanical engineer”. Dean Fischer and I were married on February 15, 1975. It was a dream come true when we moved to the family farm in Clover. Farm life with baby calves, driving the harvest truck, and having a home for my horse was cause to thrive. Dean proved to be an incredible husband, father, and farmer, absolutely outstanding in his field!! He then began to experience health problems that required us to travel for medical treatments. Tears of gratitude flowed when we returned from a medical appointment to find multiple combines parked in the yard, the grain harvested and in the grain bin. Dean passed away in December 1983 of Melanoma cancer.

A special thanks for the generosity of Dorthy Fischer, the Peace Lutheran Church (Filer), the Clover Lutheran Church, and the neighbors who irrigated, and finished harvesting the crops. Also, thanks to the many others who helped prepare for the equipment sale that truly enabled the girls and I to remain on the farm.

The privilege of being a mom and raising my daughters was an amazing and challenging experience. I cherish the memories of watching each daughter, Faye and Anne, compete in horse shows, FFA events, 4H, rodeos, and later marry, and find their career pathways.

Looking back, most of my life goals were achieved. After teaching for 28 years, I retired and began to refine my writing skills. Writing short stories and winning several awards encouraged me. My favorites were “The Beast who Stayed”, about the importance of 4H and “The Mystery of Rabbit Springs Crossing”, which fed the gold lust of some readers. My long-awaited children’s book, “Legend of the Snowflake Appaloosa”, will be available October 2024, from Amazon.

A late life goal was acquiring a brood mare and raising some outstanding performance horses. Other special gifts were my three grandchildren, J.W., Kaylee, and Abigail, plus the four grand-dogs!

Surviving me are my daughters, Faye (Jason) Lewis (Filer) and Anne (David) Johnson (Twin Falls); my sister, Carol (Mike) Prentice (Middleton); my brothers, Cary (Marilyn) Molsee (Pocatello), Greg (Suzie) Molsee (Boise) and Roy (Ladonna) Molsee (Jerome); my brothers-in-law Wayne (Carole) Fischer (Kimberly), and Glenn (Sandy) Fischer (Filer); plus, my many nieces and nephews.

Proceeding my death was my husband Dean; my mother-in-law, Dorothy Fischer-Lewis; and both of my parents.

In lieu of donations and flowers, please donate in my name to the Valley House, Twin Falls.

All things work to the good for those who love the Lord.

All my Love, Lorain Dianne Fischer
