It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing on Tuesday, June 2, 2015 of Attie Fischer, beloved wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great grandmother and dear friend.

Mom’s passing comes shortly after her 60th wedding anniversary, her 85th birthday and, of course, Mother’s Day. We are very grateful that we were able to share so much joy and so many milestones together.

We will miss her very much but she would want all of us and all of her friends to take comfort in happy memories of time spent with her.

“I won’t be far away, for life goes on.

So if you need me, call and I will come though you can’t see or touch me, I’ll be near.

And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear all of my love around you soft and clear.”

In lieu of flowers the Family asks that you give your loved ones a hug and that you contribute in your own way to preserving the environment.
