Funeral arrangements by
Leyden's Funeral Home (Calgary)

Rita Agnes Fisher (nee Kelly), passed away January 30, 2005 at the Intercare Brentwood Care Centre, after many years of failing health.

In her younger years, although being forced to leave school early due to illness, she spent several years running her own hair salon. Rita was married to Bruce Fisher and raised three children. The marriage ended in divorce in 1971. Rita worked at various jobs until the effects of several strokes forced her to move in the Chinook Care Centre. Rita is survived by her brother James and family, daughters Maureen (Ron) of Medicine Hat and Colleen (Geoff) and son Wayne (Wendy), both of Calgary. She is also survived by five grandchildren: Kelli, Heather, Annette, Breanne and Coleton, as well as several great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her parents, James and Agnes Kelly and her brother Robert. The family wishes to thank the staff of both the Chinook and Brentwood Care Centres for the care given to their mother over the years. Their care and thoughtfulness was appreciated. Although sadness prevails, Mom is finally free of the shackles that poor health brought. Funeral Service will be held on Friday, February 4, 2005 at 1:30 p.m. at St. Anthony’s Roman Catholic Church (5340 – 4 St. SW).
