Jean was born in Olga on March 2, 1932 to Fred and Freda (Beaudoin) Carignan and attended Cavalier Public Schools. She married Duane Fisk on February 14, 1956 in St. Thomas. They lived in Glasston, Drayton and Grand Forks before settling in Wales in 1961 when they purchased the Wales Farmers Elevator. She helped out with the books for the elevator and was active in the St. Michael’s Altar Society, PTA, and the Wales Curling Club. Additional hobbies of hers included gardening, cards of all kinds (especially whist and pinochle), traveling with Duane, and spending time with her children and grandchildren. In later years, she loved playing dominos where she taught everyone to play by “Grandma’s rules”. Her favorite shows included All My Children, CSI, Wheel of Fortune, and Jeopardy. If you stopped by, you could always find her watching with the Golf Channel or CMT. She was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and spent the last three years living at Villa Maria Nursing Home in Fargo. She was deeply loved by the staff there for her kindness and gentle nature.

Jean is survived by three children and their spouses: Debra (Charles) Rodgers of Minneapolis, Minn., Mark (Julie) Fisk of Langdon, and Jeff (Tina) Fisk of West Fargo; 10 grandchildren: Cassandra (Mike) Larson, Hillary Rodgers, Chaz Rodgers, Adam Fisk, Aron (Ashley) Fisk, Jordan Fisk, Kaley Fisk, Karson Fisk, Alyssa Gustafson, and Brady Gustafson; three great-grandchildren: Aaliyah Larson, Makai Larson and Madden Funk as well as a number of cousins, nieces and nephews.
