SR. FISHER OBITUARY
October 27, 2022
February 20, 1930 - October 13, 2022 Fisher, Sr. Frances of the Daughters of Mary and Joseph, born in Waco, Texas on February 20, 1930. Frances is predeceased by her parents Henry Fisher and Clementine Webb and sister Henrietta Eichler. Survived by her sister Bessie Fretter and husband James, nephew Kenneth and wife Sherrie, niece Kristina Oswald and husband Robert. Although her family moved to Los Angeles when Frances was 5, Frances remained a proud daughter of Texas for her entire life. She grew up in Culver City, attending St. Augustine Elementary School which was staffed by the Daughters of Mary and Joseph, and graduated from Immaculate Heart high school in June, 1948. Frances entered the Daughters of Mary and Joseph in August, 1948, and made her first vows in 1951. A great lover of learning, Frances pursued her education with focus and intensity. She was definitely a History "buff". She loved teaching. Her first assignment was at St. Augustine's School and for the next 53 years Frances taught in several Archdiocesan High Schools. Her teaching career ended with 14 happy, memorable years at Cathedral high school, Los Angeles. When she retired in 2005, Frances served as Vocation Director for the Daughters of Mary and Joseph. She also served as an advocate for annulments in the Archdiocesan Marriage Tribunal. Frances died peacefully on October 13th in the presence of her Community and staff at St. John of God Care Center. We are grateful to the staff of the Marian Residence in Rancho Palos Verdes, and to the staff at St. John of God, who gently accompanied her in her final days. Mass of Resurrection will took place at Holy Redeemer Chapel, Holy Cross Cemetery, 5835 Slauson Ave., Culver City on Wednesday, October 26. Condolences may be registered at MeM.com. Memorials may be made to Daughters of Mary and Joseph Retirement Fund, 5300 Crest Rd. Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90275-5004.
