75 Years in 2009:
Oakes-Fisher Insurance has been an independent insurance agency since
it was established in 1934 by Jack Ellis of Owosso. When Jack died an
untimely death in the early 40's, his widow Ruth Ellis took over and
ran the agency until 1972 when she retired for health reasons.
Keeping it in the family, Ruth sold the business to her nephews, John
and Jim Oakes, and many thriving years later, they sold it to John's
son, Mike Oakes. Over the years, with the purchase of other agencies,
the company name changed from the Ellis Agency to Ellis-Oakes to Oakes
and Coons, then Oakes Insurance Services, and most recently, to
Oakes-Fisher Insurance when long time employee and Certified Insurance
Service Representative (CISR), Renee Fisher (formerly Renee Havalda),
became a partner. Renee is licensed in property and casualty, life and
Other members of the Oakes-Fisher Insurance team include Missy Maike, Sue Baker, and Leigh Swank who are extended family members with a
combined 26 years of service to the agency.
