Hello-Bonjour from France.
Sorry for your loss.

I just found out about Renee's passing or I definitely would have been at her memorial service. She was one of a kind. She was my directing teacher when I interned in 1970 and always remained my friend, mentor and sometimes surrogate mother. Although we hadn't seen each other in awhile, we were still close friends and stayed in touch. I loved her and will miss her terribly. I want to express my condolences to Buddy, Chip, Ross, Marc and the rest of the family.

Renee Fisher was my French teacher at Plant HS from 1962-64. Her energy, dynamic personality, and commitment to her students made her one of my most beloved teachers. She pushed us all to excel, a lesson that served us well in life as well as in French class.

Renee was my French teacher at Plant High School in 1960-64. I remember her well and will always thank her for being a role model and important person to me in my teenage years. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Mom - You taught Chip, Ross and I so much about life and showed us how to be respectful gentlemen. Dad, your sons, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and neice are forever grateful for the time we spent with you. You touched the lives of so many wonderful people; you helped us all see the good in people and the great things that come from continuous education and improvement. You will forever be in our hearts and never be forgotton - I promise. You had such eloquent style; anyone who knew you enjoyed your company and advice. You did such wonderful things for so many people during WWII - you put your life on the line to save others. Mom, there's no greater honor than that and you did it. Your zest for life was formidable. The sharing of your life experiences made an impact on all who knew you. So much can be said about the Lady of my life, and I know you'd rather have us press-on than to stop and celebrate all the unconditional acts of bravery and kindness you so much enjoyed doing for others. I will honor you daily and look forward to the day we meet again. I'm so proud I can say that Renee Fisher is my mom. I will always love. cherish and respect you. J'taime beaucoup, et merci bien pour son travail pour l'advancement de la langue Francaise. Beaucoup des persons aimee voue, et, vous passe un vie increable! Rest in peace Madame, you deserve all the glory Heaven can give. I will look for you tout-suite when I arrive to join you. Rest assured, we will take good care of Poppy, your loving grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Your legacy will continue at Plant H.S. and the Univ. Of Tampa through language scholarships in your Honor. Adieu Madame, adieu. I'm so lucky to be your son, and promise to stand-up straight, keep my shirt-tail tucked-in and smile through all of life's ups and downs - just like you did. You set an example that I'm not sure I'll ever be able to match, but, I promise to keep in mind your hard-work ethic and joie de vie. I'll always love and adore you mom - you're in my heart daily. Truly, you are a Renaissance Woman. To the greatest Lady I've ever known, I bid adieu et bon chance. Je vous aime beaucoup, beaucoup. Marc

I know it will storm tomorrow cause all the angels in heaven will be dressed in their French Maid Outfits singing "elle recoule recoule recoule" Shaking up the heavens.
Buddy, Marc, Chip and Ross so sorry for your loss but she is just starting a whole new deal upstairs.
Ah dear Renee the times we had. She taught me how to smoke cigarettes (well kinda)I wanted to smoke Kent cigarettes just like her. We went to Europe in'65 I think it was. I jumped off clifts in Amalfi, snuck out with a bunch of French kids in a Citroen etc. She taught us so much French and I can still remember every poem, every song, every word of French she taught us. She would yell at me and I would yell back but it was a total riot. What a great woman and teacher she was. She taught us "Vouloir c'est pouvoir." Where there's a will, there's a way. I lived by that motto and it took and takes me far. She really influenced all of our lives. Fun, full of life woman. I feel bad that time and geography separated all of us but anyone that had her as a teacher will always say what a great teacher and person she was. Thanks Renee keep on truckin!!

Wish I had known the heroic stature of your mother when I was a student at PHS in the early 60's - I would have taken French just to be exposed to the character of such a woman! Her contributions to mankind never seemed to stop flowing as her life unfolded.
She was a giant among women - and men.
What an honor it is to have this common institutional bond with such a the guise of HB Plant High.

Marc, Ross and Chip,
I am so sorry for your loss. You will be in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve the loss of your precious mother. Your mom made an impact on so many lives. May God send to you His comforter and His peace in the days and weeks ahead.
With a hug and blessings,

I knew Renee Fisher from my years at Plant H.S. as a very cultured & sophisticated woman who took students to Europe in the summers. I knew nothing of her heroism in WWII nor of her many other honors & accomplishments. My sympathy is with her family, especially with Chip, whom I knew from his friendship with my brother. You are all in my thoughts & prayers.

I am so sad to hear of Madame Fisher's passing. 40 years ago, I was one of the lucky ones to be taken to Europe in one of her groups. Marc came too. I think he was about 12 years old, at the time and probably thought we were all crazy girls. And we were. How she maintained her sanity those six weeks is beyond me. Having taken Spanish, I had never been in Mrs. Fisher's class and did not know her well. I had also never flown on a plane or even been away from Tampa. That all changed the summer of '72 with Mrs. Fisher. She opened up the world to me and opened up my eyes to other people and how they live, beyond my little corner of the world. I grew up that summer with Mrs. Fisher. A few weeks ago, I returned to Europe for the first time, since that summer 40 years ago. I found myself thinking of her often and regaling my friends in Italy with Rene Fisher stories that she had shared with us, that summer, so long ago. Mrs. Fisher had that effect on everyone. You never forgot the lessons she taught you, whether it be in the classroom or on the other side of the world. You never forgot her. Marc, Ross, Chip, you had an extraordinary mother, but I suspect you already knew that. Her courage and intelligence left an indelible imprint on all who had the good fortune to know her.
