Priscilla Elaine Fisher of Duluth passed away on Tuesday, April 25, at Solvay Hospice House after a long, courageous battle with cancer.
Born June 18, 1943 to Reginald and Elaine (Roleff) Chapman of Duluth, she graduated from Duluth Central High School before working at St. Jean’s School and Minnesota Power. She married Ron Fisher on September 12, 1970 and raised three children. She was a lifetime member of the French Club and an active and devoted member of Holy Family (formerly St. Jean’s) Church. She enjoyed reading, knitting, and spending as much time as possible at her camper by the lake. But perhaps most of all she loved her family and adored her grandchildren. Her deep and lasting devotion to her husband and children and her warm and generous nature ensured that she was loved by many friends and will be missed dearly by all who knew her.
She is preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Dan Chapman.
She is survived by her husband, Ron, her children: Bronwyn Lipinski of Duluth, Ethan (Heather) Fisher of Duluth, and Jessica (Kevin) Saba of Belle Plaine, and her grandchildren: Jonah and Dalton Lipinski; Emily and Lauren Saba; and Ethan, Hannah, and Lillian Fisher; and many nephews, nieces, and cousins.
Visitation: Sunday April 30, 3PM to 5PM and continues from 10AM until the 11AM Mass of Christian Burial Monday May 1, 2017, all at Holy Family Catholic Church, 2430 W. 3rd St., Duluth. Burial at Forest Hill Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the Holy Family Roof Fund are preferred. Williams-Lobermeier-Boettcher Funeral Home is entrusted with final care.
A special thanks to the many amazing doctors, nurses, and caretakers from St. Mary’s and Solvay Hospice House who went above and beyond their duty to make an impossible experience one that was filled with laughter, care, and love.
