Biography

Harriet J. Fisk, 97, of Waterloo, IA, died Monday, December 23, 2019, at Friendship Village Pavilion.

She was born on February 4, 1922, in Greene, IA, daughter of Ernest Claude and Zazel Annetta (Moss) Jung and graduated from West Waterloo High School in 1940.  When a student at West High, Harriet’s friends used to say she looked like Judy Garland, who was the same age. 

She married Robert W. Fisk on June 1, 1947, in Waterloo. He died January 11, 2008.  

Harriet worked at Associated Manufacturers Co. in Waterloo for several years and then became a full-time homemaker.

Harriet was a lifelong member and deacon at Bethel Presbyterian Church (now Unity Presbyterian Church) where she was involved in Women of the Church and Circle. She also volunteered with Meals on Wheels.  Harriet stayed active most of her life and residents of her neighborhood remember seeing her doing yard work and riding her 3-wheeled bicycle to get groceries, into her ‘80’s.  She was also a big fan of “The Golden Girls” television show both during its original run and in much later years.

She is survived by two sons, Clayton (Linda) Fisk‚ Buckingham and Brian (Karen) Fisk‚ Tampa‚ FL; three grandchildren, Elizabeth Boldon‚ Ryan (Leah) Fisk‚ and Marielle Fisk; three great-grandchildren, Aletha Boldon, Robert Boldon, and Alonzo Boldon; a sister, Phyllis Kirschman‚ Waterloo; and several nephews and a niece.

Harriet is preceded in death by her husband; a brother and sister-in-law, Dale and Donna Jung, and a brother-in-law, Dale Kirschman.
