Frances P. Fisher, age 97 of Grandville, walked without pain, into the arms of Jesus early on October 3, 2020. Fran was a very happy and social person. She was an active member of St. Pius X church. She loved being a greeter on Sundays and was a part of everything social at church. She played cards and dice with family and friends and continued winning even at 97 years old. She belonged to Red Hats and enjoyed each get together and the friends she met. She loved to travel, tend to her beautiful flowers, and entertain family and friends. She spent most of her time in her kitchen making the Italian foods she grew up with. No one ever left Frannie’s house hungry. She was able to work for 30 years at General Motors while raising three daughters.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Clayton Fisher, and her beloved daughter, Sharon Reinertson. Left here to miss her everyday are her daughters Kathy (Jack) Barber, and Suzi (Rich) Hubbard. Fran was blessed with seven grandchildren. Their visits and phone calls meant so much to her.

Many memories of Franny
My mom and her met when Suzi,Kathy and Sharon were little. We played together . I loved her cooking and laughter and her 2 carrot story. Her flowers in her garden on Cleveland Street were amazing.
Going to Bingo with my mom and meeting at Big Boys was a routine. I especially loved going to the farm, milking a cow and eating with a huge Italian family of love
Her sisters and brother made us family
Her parents must be so happy to have her with them in the Light
Bless you sweet Franny. I’m glad I bought your coat! Thanks for the song and all your love here on Earth.

How very sorry to hear about your passing Fran. My deepest condolences to the family. I will always remember our visits together especially at Christmas and taking home those delicious cookies. Even though we lived miles apart, you were one of the people I missed the most. Anyone whose ever met you would know the love and compassion you expressed from your heart. Continue your loving work in heaven because I know you could be no where else. Until we meet again keep smiling.
With Love,

To Kathy, Jack, Sue and Rich and families, Jim and I want to send our most sincere sympathy. Fran was such a jolly person and so much fun to be around. She loved to play cards and we spent many nights at the cottage all playing together. Kathy's mom Fran and my mom Fran came up with Kathy one weekend to see our new home before my mom passed in 1999. Big Italian get together! So much fun and such sweet memories! After my mom died I told Kath to enjoy every call from her mom because one day she would miss those calls. Now your conversations are silent, but never stop talking to her as she still hears you, I'm sure! Our love to everyone in the family!

So many great memories staying at what we called the Frances Fisher Hotel! Anytime we had a travel basketball tournament in the area we had the best lodging in town filled with great food, card and dice games!
