HARRIET EVA FISHER
Harriet Eva Fisher (nee Hill)
(Dec. 8, 1913 – Dec. 9, 2012)
having recently celebrated her
99th Birthday, passed away
peacefully at Noric House in
Vernon. Mom was predeceased
by husband, Harry, in 1991
whom she married as a war bride
in England in 1944. They moved
shortly thereafter to Moose Jaw,
SK where she and Harry raised
their children: Harold, Helen,
Howard, and Gerry. In 1982 after their children had married and moved to other locations, they moved to Vernon, BC to be closer to their son Howard and his wife, Linda along with their two sons.
Mom was an active member of the Presbyterian Church in both Moose Jaw and Vernon and enjoyed singing in the choirs. A wonderful homemaker and an exceptional cook, she crafted main courses and spectacular desserts enjoyed by family and friends on many occasions. She had a very positive outlook on life, with its trials and tribulations and
approached all challenges with a quiet determined attitude. Mom had a bright and cheery manner with a wonderful sense of humor. She loved to travel and enjoyed her time with all of her family.
Mom is survived by sister, Mildred and her husband Eddie
of St. Catherine’s, ON, daughter Helen and husband Gary Huffman and their children, Rhonda and Greg and families of Calgary, AB, son Howard and wife, Linda of Vernon and sons, Todd and Ryan and families of Calgary, and daughter Gerry and husband, Ron McMullen and their children, Heather of Vernon, Chad and family of Edmonton and Bill and family of Smokey Lake, AB. Harriet is survived by
fourteen great grandchildren. Our Mom was a wonderful mother who cherished her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, and was a caring friend to many. She will be fondly remembered.
