Meredith A. Fisher, 92, of Englewood, Fla., passed away peacefully Friday, March 14, 2014, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born in New York City Nov. 1, 1921, and moved to New Jersey, where she completed her education to become an LPN.
Meredith married in 1942, to Edward Fisher and raised five daughters. After retiring from the medical profession, they settled to the comforts of Florida in 1981. Interests included reading, cooking, playing the organ, but mostly enjoying the beach and looking for shells on warm summer days.
She is survived by daughters, Gail (Joseph) Selvaggio of Lakewood, Ohio, Jane Barton, Jean Kolakowski, Joan (Roger) Botelson, all of Englewood; granddaughter, Wendy Quinn, of Englewood; nine grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-granddaughter. Meredith was preceded in death by her husband, Edward, of 70 years of marriage; and daughter Lynn Feightner.
Services will be private.
The family has a special thank you to the Tidewell Hospice Team and to all the caretakers who provided excellent care during this past year.
