FISHER, CONSTANCE “CONNIE” PRATT Constance “Connie” Pratt Fisher, of Palm Harbor, Florida died Dec. 26, 2015. She had just celebrated her 90th birthday. Born Evelyn Constance Pratt on Dec. 17, 1925 in St. Paul, Minnesota to Evelyn and George Pratt, she lived most of her life in New England before moving to Florida. She fondly remembers her beloved grandmother who helped raise her in the family home in Walpole, Mass. Sharing her birthday one year apart was her dear brother Ralph Curtis Pratt who pre-deceased her. In her youth she played field hockey, then excelled at tennis. She loved to play piano. Throughout her life though, she enjoyed card games, especially bridge. Connie enjoyed gardening, and loved to entertain. She lived long enough to see her team, the Boston Red Sox, finally win a World Series. She received a bachelor of Science in nursing from Simmons College and had a long career as an RN. She worked for Quinnipiac College and Southern CT State College as head nurse. She went on to earn a Master of Science in Public Health from Yale, in 1973. Connie married Robert Fisher, also of Walpole, Mass, in 1950. They were divorced after 41 years. Both are survived by their 5 children- Curtis Fisher (and his wife Sharon) of Madison, CT, Constance Fisher, Robert Fisher (and his fiancé Ann Van Bramer) and John Fisher (and his fiancé Margie Reynolds), all of North Haven, and Sue Venable (and her husband Steve) of Houston Tex. In addition she leaves many grandchildren who adored her- Jessica, Victoria, Kristen, Kimberly, Elissa, Kaitlyn, Robyn, Robert Jr., John Jr., Evelyn and Ben. Family meant everything to her and she was proud to become a great-grandmother to Madison, Ryan and Damian who was born just two days after she died. Connie took a keen interest in genealogy and traced her ancestry directly to the Mayflower, descended from Richard Warren. In her later years she lived at St. Mark Village in Palm Harbor, FL, where she met the love of her life, Peter Jacques. She said she had a beautiful life and was grateful for her five children. She will be deeply missed. A memorial service will be held at Spring Glen Church, 1825 Whitney Ave, Hamden, on Saturday, Jan. 16, at 11:30 am. There will be a reception following the service.
