Obituary of Mrs. Mary P. Fisher
Mary P. Fisher, 100, of Dagsboro, went home to be with the Lord on April 25, 2019. She was surrounded by her loving family.
Mrs. Fisher was born on January 10, 1919 in Aldan, Pennsylvania to the late John H. and Mary Elizabeth Godfrey Hudson. She received her early childhood education from the Aldan public school system. After the passing of her mother, Mary’s father relocated the family to Delaware where he had support of extended family in raising his only child.
In 1939, Mary married David Roscoe Fisher. Five children were born to this union; John, David, Bruce, Lisa and Patricia. Mary spent her adult years as a housewife; caring for their family and home. She would later become caregiver to her grandchildren while their parents worked. Mary was a member of the Wesleyan Church in Millsboro where she enjoyed fellowship and singing. When she couldn’t make it out to church on Sundays, she’d watch evangelical ministries on the television and/or listen to gospel on the radio. Reading was one of her favorite hobbies, especially reading her Bible.
In addition to her parents, Mary was preceded in death by her husband, David Roscoe Fisher (1992) and daughter, Patricia Kirby (2014), cousins Catherine Mariner and Pauline Godfrey.
