Elizabeth Erin Fisher

November 17, 1962 – December 10, 2016

 

It was with great sadness that family and friends said goodbye to Erin Fisher at a memorial service at St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Abbotsford, B.C., Friday, December 30, 2016.

Family members and friends, many from the Fraser Valley Poets Society, shared memories and stories of Erin’s life.

It’s hard to believe that our friend and colleague, with whom we celebrated a book launch just short months ago, is gone. Erin, we will miss you!

Obituary:

Erin Fisher, 54, passed away suddenly, December 10, 2016, in Abbotsford BC.

Erin loved life and lived it with an indomitable spirit and passion. She was a poet, a writer, an artist, a drummer, a karate black belt, a philosopher, a tarot card reader. She loved the arts, music, movies, anything to enrich her life and soul and she truly enriched ours.

Erin will be forever loved and sadly missed by her father Dennis, mother Maureen (nee Tuite), brother Michael (Eileen), niece Bronwen, nephew Riley and many, many more extended family and friends. May she rest in peace.

A Funeral Mass will be held on Friday, December 30, 2016 at 11:00 am at St. Ann’s Roman Catholic Church at 33333 Mayfair Avenue, Abbotsford, BC.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
