Leota was born February 4, 1943 to Aulden and Bertha (Bauer) Cahoon in Hazen, ND. She grew up on the family farm near Hannover and attended country school. After school, Leota moved to Minnesota to live with an aunt. On August 4, 1961 she married her soulmate, Lawrence Fischer, in Hannover. The two made their home on the family farm before moving into Stanton.
Leota’s family was her pride and joy. Her most precious times were spent with them. She was amazing at arts and crafts, including her ceramic work, cake decorating, and sewing. She opened her own business as many local people wanted to purchase her crafts. Leota loved animals and was known to raise many different kinds.
