Tanya Fisher

Our Daughter

Tanya Ann Fisher was born on November 30, 1969 in San Antonio, Texas. She passed away on November 4, 2015 in Kennewick, Washington, 26 days before her 46th birthday. Tanya arrived as a “special” daughter.

Tanya lived her whole life between Richland and Kennewick, Washington. She attended Hanford, Spaulding Special Education and later was main streamed into the Kennewick school system. Between her junior and senior years, she transferred back into Richland School District and graduated from Richland High School in 1990.

As a young girl, Tanya took ballet lessons and was active in Camp Fire Girls. She learned to play the organ. She loved putting puzzles together and was very accomplished in this area. She loved playing with her step-sisters, cousins and all the family pets. Tanya loved going to school and did very well in her classes.

As she grew, she participated in Special Olympics and was always winning awards. She collected many ribbons and medals through the years.

After graduating from high school, Tanya worked for Goodwill Industries for 20 years. She was a client of the Tri-Cities Residential Services.

As the years passed from beginning to end, Tanya became empowered to live her life fully. She did this by keeping herself busy. She was kind, loving and at times stubborn.

Tanya was blessed to have two sets of parents: Gary and Kathryn Fisher and Ann and Dennis Morissette who loved her unconditionally. She had a large extended family by having her life “blended” together.

Tanya, your family is proud of who you were and what you accomplished in your lifetime. You always knew who you were and you always exceeded our expectations. You will always be in our hearts and the memories of your life will be with us forever. You were and are loved greatly and will be missed by all.

A special thank you to Terilyn and all the personal who worked with Tanya from the Tri-Cities Residential Services.

Tanya is survived by her parents, Gary (father) and Kathryn (stepmother) Fisher; Ann (mother) and Dennis Morissette; (stepfather),  stepsisters; Wendy Morissette and Dawn Faught; granparents, Marion and Josephine Locke (deceased), Myron (deceased) and Trudy Fisher; great grandparents Claude and Sue Locke (deceased); aunts and uncles, Tim and Virginia Locke, Roy and Kelly Locke, Linda Daniel and Barbara Edwards. She is also survived by her cousins, Jennifer Thompson, Christine Merrick, Larry Locke, Mary Ruiz, Jason Locke, Joi Devoir, Cheyenne Locke, Tara Edwards and numerous second cousins.
