Helen Fischer died peacefully Tuesday morning just shy of her 98th birthday.
Helen was predeceased by her loving husband, William Fischer of 42 years, siblings, Jack, Mary, Anna and Charles.
Helen lived a full life as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and great aunt. She was dearly loved by her son, Tom Okopski, his wife Jenny Okopski, stepson, Tom Fischer and his wife Rita Fischer, grandchildren, Lyn (Brett), Ann, Leon (Cynthia), great grandchildren, Marissa (Eddie), Lucas and Logan.
Helen retired from the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company where she was a Comptometer Operator of 33 years. Helen had a love for sports. She was an avid Detroit Tigers fan. Her animated passion for the game kept her young! She also loved bowling and she loved to play golf. If it weren't for knee surgery, she would've died with a golf club in her hand!
She will be dearly missed by all who knew her. May she be at peace as she reunites with her beloved husband in the presence of our Lord and Savior.
"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal."
Her family will have a private Celebration of Life for Helen and ask that condolences be sent below. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Helen Fischer can be made to the Kidney or Heart Foundation.
