Memorial Service to be held for Brenda Fisher

HOMER — Brenda Fay Fisher, loving daughter and sister, went to be with the Lord at the age of 64 years old.


Brenda was born on Dec. 31, 1956, in Collison, to James David and Pearl (Richard) Fisher. She had four sisters and one brother.


Brenda had a passion for history and writing and she combined her two favorite hobbies and began writing books.

She was also an animal lover, with her favorite being great danes. She was known for her kind and compassionate spirit. She loved to volunteer with the children at her church.


Brenda was preceded in death by her father, mother and sister, Deborah.


She is survived by her sisters, Pamela, Karen and Rebecca; brother, David; and several cousins, nephews and nieces.


A memorial service for Brenda Fisher will be held at Living Word Family Church at 10:45 a.m. on Oct. 10.

Brenda served as the church secretary for over 20 years, and it is the desire of the church, to honor her labors and her memory with a time of shared memories and a celebration of a life well-lived. The memorial service will follow approximately 15 minutes after the close of the church’s regular service, which will be abbreviated that morning.

Family and friends of Brenda are invited to attend but bear in mind that there will likely be some traffic in the parking lot from 10:30 to 10:45 as some church members may not be able to stay for the memorial service.
