Violet May Fisher Lusianno, age 88, of Harborcreek Township, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, April 27, 2014. She was born in Union City on August 4, 1925, a daughter of the late Lloyd and Gladys Peterson Fisher.

Violet worked at the former Erie Resistor Corp. and HL Green's. After her retirement, she enjoyed trimming and tying grapes with her "grape girls," who became lifelong friends. She was a collector of many things: ducks, angels, snowmen and wind chimes. She also loved going to yard sales and finding bargains. Violet was a member of the South Harborcreek United Methodist Church, and was also a longtime volunteer with the Emmaus Soup Kitchen.

She married Rocco A. Lusianno on September 12, 1944. They were united in marriage for 55 years, until his passing in 2000.

In addition to her husband and her parents, Violet was preceded in death by five brothers: Lloyd, Samuel, Norman, George and James Fisher.

Survivors include her only son, Gerald Lloyd Lusianno and his wife Blanche Ellen Cook Lusianno; her brother, Thomas Fisher; three sisters: Betty Jean Fisher Elder, Barbara Shirley Fisher Ranson and Loretta Fisher Breeding; three grandchildren: Angela Lusianno Ritz and her husband Gerald, Anthony John Lusianno and Dena Ann Lusianno Theiss and her two great-grandsons, who loved their Mamaw: Anthony John Theiss and Jacob Gerald Ritz.
