Obituary for Ruth Edith Fisher (née Fry)
Ruth sang her last song on Sunday. A city girl through and through, she grew up on Brock Avenue with her parents Catherine (nee Lee) and John Lyttle Fry and sisters Queenie, Kathleen, Eilleen and Lyla (Mike). The sisters were known as the “Fry Girls”. She grew up in the depression with very little but never noticed as they were truly loved and always the best dressed due to their mother’s seamstress skills. Ruth regaled us with stories and escapades of her youth. She worked hard, picking up lifelong friends along the way. The next era is when she met Dick (Richard) Fisher and the rest is history. Between her beloved children Richard, John (Lee) and Kathryn (Bob) and the family insurance business (Dick Fisher-State Farm) in their Trehorne home it made for a chaotic, exciting life. She was an incredible cheerleader, opening her heart and home to friends and family one and all, hockey games, musicals and celebrations. She loved reading, plants, bridge, cards, sewing, jazz, old movies, dancing, animals, pretty shoes and never missed a chance to say I LOVE YOU.
A 10 year sojourn to Oakville added new lifelong friends to the mix and cherished grandchildren, Alexandria (Keith), Katie (Mike), Christine (Victor), John Jr (Grace), Emily (Eli), R.J., Hilary (Julian) and great grandchildren Finley, Nora and Ollie.
Ruth was a champion of animals big and small, loving many dogs in her life. Ruth embraced all those in her sphere, pulling them in with a life force of love and laughter. She loved to sing and dance, travel, celebrate and break into song anytime. She loved Muskoka, Emerald Pointe and Weybourne Cres.
Thank you to the staff at Delmanor Wynford, especially Joyce for making the last 2 years of her life remarkable.
Ruth’s legacy is one of humour, grace, dancing, singing and family. May her song be in our hearts forever.
