Betty Jean Fisch

November 19, 1932June 4, 2021

Betty Jean Green Fisch, 88, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and aunt, crossed through the heavenly gates on June 4. She spent her last days surrounded by her family at her home.

Born in Hartsfield, Georgia, to Herman and Lillian Green, she met Will Fisch, the handsome Air Force officer who would become her husband, while he was stationed at Spence Field. After Will completed his tour of duty at Craig Air Force Base in Selma, Alabama, they made their home in Moultrie, Georgia. Betty left a career in banking to devote herself to her family, which eventually included a son, Steve, and two daughters, Lauren (Pelham) and Lee Ann. When Will retired, they moved to Tallahassee, Florida, to be with their grandchildren, who were her adoring playmates and the lights of her life: Joey, Jessica, and Casey Fisch, Zoey Oropallo, and Zach and Sam Pelham.

An active member of Hartsfield United Methodist Church and later Killearn United Methodist Church, Betty built her life on a foundation of faith, love and service. She always had a kind word for everyone and could light up a room with her smile. She especially had a soft spot for little ones, who were drawn to her wherever she went.

Memories of Betty will be treasured by her husband, children and grandchildren, as well as by her son-in-law, Trent Pelham, and daughter-in-law, Kelley Fisch; a host of nieces and nephews; and many others who were fortunate enough to count her as friend.

A celebration of a life well lived will be held at the Tallahassee National Cemetery on Wednesday, June 9, at 2 PM. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in her honor to Big Bend Hospice or Killearn United Methodist Church Missions.
