Regina A. "Jean" Fisher Obituary

Regina "Jean" A. Fisher of La Luz, N.M., gently passed away, comforted by family members, on June 4, 2016, at Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center in Alamogordo, N.M., after a heart attack the previous day. Jean was 87 years old.

A Memorial Service will be held at St. Jude Parish Catholic Church in Alamogordo, NM on Monday, June 20, at 10 a.m. Interment in the columbarium will follow.

Jean was born in Kearny, N.J., on Oct. 4, 1928, the second daughter of Katherine and Albert Peters. She went to high school at St. Cecilia's in Kearny, N.J., and married her high school sweetheart, George R. Fisher, on Oct. 9, 1948. They were together almost 62 years and made their home first in New Jersey before moving to New Mexico in 1984. Jean loved planning their vacations and they visited the romantic "A-list" of Europe together (i.e. Paris, Rome, Madrid, Amsterdam).

She enjoyed being the organizer and hostess for family holiday gatherings and reunions, and was the go-to person for all the latest family news. She was the much beloved matriarch of our family.

Jean was preceded in death by her husband, George R. Fisher.

Jean is survived by her children, Susan Payne of Santa Ana, Calif., Nanci Ducroc of Las Cruces, N.M., Kathryn Kirk of Fresno, Calif., Robert Fisher of Lake Hiawatha, N.J., and Tom Fisher of La Luz, N.M.; her sister, Madelyn Brown of Hamilton Township, N.J.; her grandchildren, Danielle Smith of Peyton, Colo., Kelly Payne of Philadelphia, Pa., Caity Remsa of Little Ferry, N.J., Jesse Ducroc of N.M., Jessie Jean Kirk of Fresno, Calif., Connor Kirk of Fresno, Calif., and Nicole Fisher of West Orange, N.J.; her great grandchild, Roland Smith of Peyton, Colo.; her cousin Rosemary King of Hamilton Township, N.J.; her nephew Terry Brown of Allentown, N.J., and her niece Karen Headrick of San Jose, Calif.
