Karen J. Fisher Memorial 2020

Remembering Karen J. Fisher from Albuquerque, NM. September 11, 2020


Karen Fisher Memorial


Mom had told a few of us that she had written her own obituary to go into the newspaper when she died. We remembered she had said it, but none of us could find what she had written. The deadline came for the newspaper so a replacement was written. The night before the memorial service we found her note. It is too late to go into the newspaper, and the one we wrote was very close, so I will post her note here.


Karen J. Fisher, 74, a resident of Albuquerque since
1962, died Friday, August 21, 2020 in her home of natural
causes. She leaves behind (to honor and celebrate her life) her
two sons, David Fisher (wife Tess) of Portland, OR, Dan Fisher
(wife Melissa) of Albuquerque, seven grandchildren, Wyatt,
Katie, Wade, Nou, Lane, Sarabeth, and Maryann; two sisters
Lois Hughes of Albuquerque, and Marilynn Burke (husband
Henry) of Omaha, NE. Karen was preceded in death by her
parents Earl and Jennie Black. She was born on January 30,
1946 in Green Bay, WI.
Karen worked in Albuquerque and surrounding areas as a
Registered Nurse after her graduation from Highland High
School (‘64) and UNM (‘68). Karen retired from part-time
Nursing in 2017 at UNMH. She especially enjoyed working
with elderly patients and was known for her kind and
compassionate personality. She will be greatly missed as a
mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend to many people.
Karen was a member of Covenant United Methodist Church.
She was loved by so many in her Covenant family and she spent
the last years of her life rejoicing with the church and enjoying
family events. Cremation has taken place, and a Memorial
Service will be held at Covenant United Methodist Church,
located at 8510 Wyoming, NE, Albuquerque, NM 87113 at 11a.m. on Friday, September 11, 2020. For those not able to attend
in person, they can join the service virtually via Facebook Live
at fb.me/kjfisher2020. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions
can be made to Covenant United Methodist Church.
