Obituary of Kathleen Suzanne Fischer


Nelsen Williamsburg

It is with great sadness that we bid farewell to Kathleen S. Fischer, (85), who left us to be with the Lord on January 17, 2022. Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on June 10, 1936, she was the daughter of the late Allen and Alice Schaffer. Kathleen was employed at the Williamsburg Pottery for 16 years. After the Pottery, she worked locally for many years, but her most gratifying job was when she opened her own business, “Kathleen’s Competent Pet Sitting”. When you called Kathy, her voice mail said, “Sorry, I missed your call, I’m out tending critters”. Which is what she loved. She always had a box of snacks in her car for all the “critters” she cared for and any strays that she may happen upon. Even now, we are sure she is “tending to her critters”. She was preceded in death by her parents, Allen and Alice Schafer. Kathleen is survived by her sister, Judy Platt (Chuck); her brother, Jeffrey Schaeffer; her four sons, Gregory (Celia), William, Michael and Robert (Shelly); grandchildren, Laura, Kimberly, Christopher, Shara, Rachel, Tia, and Stephen; as well as great grandchildren. The family will receive friends on Monday, January 24th from 1pm to 3pm at Nelsen Funeral Home, 3785 Strawberry Plains Rd., Williamsburg. In lieu of flowers, donations in Kathleen’s memory may be made to Heritage Humane Society, 430 Waller Mill Rd., Williamsburg, VA 23185 ( Online condolences may be shared at Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Fischer family.
