Patricia Parker Fisher

WESTERLO — Patricia “Trish” Parker Fisher of Virginia Beach, Virginia, formerly of Westerlo, “entered into eternal rest at the age of 87 on May 10, 2021, joining her dearly missed husband, Walter M. Fisher Jr., son Robert D. Fisher, and sister Judith Parker Dyndor,” her family wrote in a tribute.

“Patricia’s beautiful spirit lives on in every life she touched,” her family wrote. “Patricia and her husband, Walt, were married for 53 years, raising their two sons, Michael and Bobby, in their Westerlo home, a historic farmhouse, which she so loved.  ,She was a devoted and loving wife and mother, forever going the extra mile.

“Patricia was a wonderful cook and a gracious hostess. She was a true giver in every sense of the word, caring for both her mother and mother-in-law in their home as well as her husband through final days. For the past five years, Patricia resided in Virginia Beach to be with her much loved son Michael and “daughter” Vaunda and to be near her cherished granddaughter Krystal. She was so delighted to be able to share in the life of her new great-grandson, Ryker.

“Patricia was a beautiful person both inside and out. She was always smiling, upbeat, and maintained a positive attitude throughout her life. She was a very strong woman in all ways, and she consistently lent that strength to others in their time of need. Her heart was wide open and always full of love and pride for her loved ones.

“She was that special someone who was forever on your side, and she always saw the best in each of us. Patricia had a natural sparkle and brought great joy to all who were so very fortunate to know and love her. She was a true gem in every possible way and will forever be in our hearts.”
