Adeline Mary Fisher was born October 1, 1918, at their family home in North Liberty, Iowa the daughter of Frank and Frances (Drtina) Fisher. She was united in marriage to Earl F. Kutcher on April 15, 1936, at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Oxford. The couple made their home in Oxford where they raised their family. Adeline was a hard worker, she worked alongside of her husband when they owned a farm, she not only cared for her family, but she worked outside the home doing housecleaning for many families in the area, she cooked in restaurants in the Oxford area, and had worked at the Holiday Inn in Coralville. Many will remember that she enjoyed cooking and baking, she was asked by many to bake her pies, kolaches, and other baked goods for special occasions for family and friends for years! Another of Adeline's passions in life was tending to her gardens, both flowers and vegetables, always taking great pride in these, and again many enjoyed the fruits of her labors. But most dear to her was her family, she loved being mom, grandma, and great-grandma to her family, nothing in her life brought her more happiness than this!
