Obituary for Eugenia Fisher
Eugenia May Fisher, 77, of Manassas, passed away November 29, 2017 at the Adler Center following a lengthy illness.
Eugenia was a loving example of kindness, peace, generosity, patience and grace. She was born in Coopersville, MI in 1940. She had one older sibling, Rev. Edward George Eng and one younger, Margaret Elise May. She met her husband, Dr. Maurice David Fisher, at University of Virginia where she received her EdD. They married in 1971. They lived in Mountain View, California and Durham, NC then moved to Northern Virginia in 1977 where they raised two children, Steven Daniel and Sarah May. She ran a reading tutoring business in Manassas, VA for four years and taught hundreds of kids with reading disabilities. After closing the business, she continued to tutor kids in her basement.
She was very involved in community activities until very recently and had a wide circle of friends. She worked at the Friends of the Library in Manassas where she wrote their newsletter and helped coordinate many book drive fundraising efforts. She was so passionate about knitting and met some of her closest friends at the Prince William Purlers Knitting Guild. She became a member of multiple knitting circles and taught knitting classes. Her talent for knitting was well-known; everyone who saw her creations raved about them. Most of her knitting creations were for friends, family, or to give away for charity projects.
She was also a baseball fanatic - the Washington Nationals were her favorite team and she watched all their games.
