Fern Maycie (Fisher) Bliss, 83 of Cedarville, OH, went home to be with her Lord Wednesday morning, September 26th, at Hospice of Dayton following a brief battle with cancer. Fern was born January 27, 1935, in Belding, MI, the daughter of William and Maycie Fisher.
Fern was a stay at home mom investing in the lives of her children, grandchildren, friends and church. Later in life she began working at Chemical Bank in Belding before retiring. Fern liked to garden, bake, knit, crochet, cross stitch and do puzzles. As well as being a great wife, mom and grandma, she was also our biggest prayer warrior. Many days were spent praying for her family, relatives and friends.
Fern was married August 7, 1953, to Merlin Bliss and they were able to spend 58 wonderful years together. She is survived by her children Carol Bliss and David Bliss; her grandchildren Cheyanne Bliss and Dakota Bliss; brother and sisters, Kenneth (Gwen) Fisher, Doris Watts, Clara VanDellen, Marilyn (Glen) Tinson, Eleanor Bilyeu and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, three sisters and two brothers.
