  • Mrs. Fisher was a wonderful lady and served her Lord faithfully during her life. She is resting peacefully now in her Lord’s arms. We were blessed to have known her and Pastor Fisher since 1997. We pray that her family is comforted in knowing that she has eternal life and would want that alone for her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

  • David, Jim and Paul, Oh my how we will miss your mother. They have been gone 18 years but it seems like yesterday. Your mom and of course your dad had a lasting effect on me. Your mom was my SS teacher from 9th-12th grade and she helped mold me into the person I am today. I know you will miss her more. This is just one more reason to get to Heaven. Judy Campbell

  • Mom Fisher made a great impact on Dottie and me for the 55 years we new each other. We will never forget the hours together with Dad at their home and expecially the car trips to a variety of places near Richland.

    We loved both of them very much and praise God for allowing us to be a small part of their lives.

  • David, Jim, and Paul,

    I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. She was my Sunday school teacher and close friend since 1974. I spent the night at your parents house many times and even came to Richland several times to visit. She will be greatly missed by many. She was a faithful wife, mother, friend, and servant of God. I pray that God will comfort you all in your loss. She was a wonderful woman. My anniversary is on your mother’s birthday. We had a birthday cake for her at my rehearsal dinner. She used to wake us up with song at the retreats!! She loved you all very much. I remember stories that she told me of you. I can’t remember which one of you did which thing though. One of you taught her how to tell when spaghetti is done by throwing it on the wall. One of you dunked a brand new Bible in the toilet and one put stain on the picture of Mt. Ranier. I went to many Reds games with her and your father. Her favorite player back then was Buddy Bell and I would have to pass the binoculars to her when he came to bat. I will miss her very much.
