Mrs. Fisher was born Feb. 17, 1931, in La Monte, to Harry and Ethel Eichholz. She was a 1949 graduate of La Monte High School and attended Sedalia Business College. She met the love of her life, Elwood Fisher, married him and proceeded to have four children.
Her first occupation priority was a homemaker and mother. She was a gentle, patient, kind mother, full of grace, who knew how to make her children feel special. She never had a bad word to say about anyone. She was an accomplished seamstress and avid crafter. She could make something fun, cute or useful out of almost anything she touched. She loved to garden, sew and read. She was treasured by her family.
Having professed her faith in Christ, Mrs. Fisher was a longtime member of the Lamar Baptist Church. She led Vacation Bible School, taught Sunday school, participating in the choir, played the piano, led Acteens and volunteered many hours of her time. She volunteered for Meals on Wheels and several other charitable organizations. She had a deep and abiding faith in God, which she shared and passed down to her children. She was a devoted wife to her adoring husband and a dedicated loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was the finest example of what a mother should be to her children. She will be forever honored in the hearts of those who loved her. She was cherished by her family and many others whose lives she touched and will be greatly missed. There was no finer of a person full of grace and love.
