Doris left this earth on Wednesday, November 27, 2019. She was born February 17, 1931, in La Monte, MO to the late Harry and Ethel Eichholz. Doris graduated from La Monte High School in 1949 and attended Sedalia Business College. She met the love of her life, Elwood Fisher, married him and proceeded to have four wonderful children, James, Daniel, Cherie, and Yvette.
Doris's first occupational priority was a homemaker and mother. She was a gentle patient, kind mother, full of grace who knew how to make her children feel special. She never had a bad word to say about anyone. She was an accomplished seamstress and avid crafter. She could make something fun, cute, or useful out of almost anything she touched. She loved to garden, sew, and read. Doris was treasured by her family.
Having professed her faith in Christ, Doris was a long-time member of the Lamar Baptist Church. She led Vacation Bible School, taught Sunday School, participated in the choir, played the piano, lead Acteens, and volunteered many hours of her time. She volunteered for Meals on Wheels and several other charitable organizations. She had a deep and abiding faith in God, which she shared and passed down to her children. Doris was a devoted wife to her adoring husband and a dedicated loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was the finest example of what a mother should be to her children. She will be forever honored in the hearts of those who loved her. Doris was cherished by her family and many others whose lives she touched and will be greatly missed. There was no finer of a person full of grace and love than Doris.
Doris is survived by her husband, Elwood Fisher; sons, James (Jocelyn) Fisher and Daniel (Susan) Fisher; daughters, Cherie (Paul) Rondinelli and Yvette (David) Webb; a brother, Robert Eichholz; nine grandchildren, Richard Fisher, Forest Fisher, Cristin Webb, Brian Webb, Jeremy Webb, Timothy Fisher, Naomi Fisher, Benjamin Fisher and Lydia Hubbard; and eight great-grandchildren.
