BEST DAY EVER!  A hot cup of coffee, a dog on her lap, and a cat in hair!  And likely 4 more cats out of the photo waiting their turn.
Carol Marie Fischer
  • 78 years old
  • Date of birth: Jan 4, 1939
  • Date of passing: Mar 16, 2017
Those we love, don’t go away. They walk beside us everyday. Unseen, unheard, but always near. Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Carol Marie Fischer, 78, died Thursday, March 16, 2017. She passed peacefully at Holly Heights Care Center in Denver, Colorado.

She was born to the late Florence (Glass) Wanner and Paul Glass on January 4th 1939 in St. Louis, MO. Carol graduated from Afton High School.

Carol is survived by 3 children: her daughter Vicki Wegman, son Jeff Fischer and wife Christina, son Todd Fischer and wife Kimberly, and eight grandchildren; Haley, Vance, Ty, Emmalynn, Sydney, Jake, Abby, and Taryn. She is also survived by her ex-husband Roy Fischer of Quinlan, Texas, her brother Melvin Glass of Fenton, MO, her brother Len Wanner and wife Theresa of Fredericktown, MO and her brother Larry Wanner of Dexter, MO.

Carol will be fondly remembered as a best friend to many.
She loved life most when she had a hot cup of coffee, a cat on her lap, a view of flowers growing in the yard and a friend to chat with. She was compassionate and comforting, she had a kind listening ear that one could entrust with all their life’s ups and downs.

Memorial Service and Tributes
Carol requested cremation and for her ashes to be dispersed in a quiet garden, with the ashes of the cats she had loved. A memorial service will be held in Fredericktown, Missouri around early July.

Carol requested that friends and family either plant a garden flower in her memory or make a donation to a local cat rescue organization. She never cared for “funeral lilies”, she said, and she hated watching flowers fade away in a vase…when they could be growing vibrantly in the garden.

"Carol Fischer was not only my grandma, she was an amazing person that influenced my life very much. I wanted to thank her for always looking out for me and always being kind to me when I was down. I never had the chance to tell her I loved her very much and I regret not doing that. She had always brought a smile to my face every time I visited her and she always made me laugh. I miss her very much. She had accomplished so much in life and I am very proud to say that she was a great great person in my life. Sincerely Abby P."

"Carol and I became friends later on in life.  I believe we were both surprised to discover we had so much in common.  We shared many "loves and Likes".  She will always share a piece of me and my heart will be happy as I recall the loves and likes we both appreciated and were thankful for.  These are some of the best and some of the simplest:  8 amazing Grandchildren and their loving parents, friend and family gatherings, the sound of children and pets playing, a good cup of coffee, gooey butter cake and chocolate chip cookies, purple and green, old times,  the tedious chore of shelling pecans, the aroma of earthy flowers growing to display their glorious splendor.  These will always be a reminder of Carol and will continue to remain on and on.  Peace!"

"There isn't enough space to allow for all that Carol was.  She thought of everyone before herself,  always smiled.  Her family was the most important part of her life!   Loved her Choc Full of Nuts coffee which she had a terrible time finding when she left Williamson, NY.  Wednesday's in winter found the three CRAZY GIRLS  (Mother, Jugs, and Speed) skiing at Song Mountain .. Syracuse NY   Carol  (nick named Mother - Dorothy (nick named Speed) and Betty (me- nicknamed Jugs)
When Carol left NY STATE it wasn't the same.  Carol made friends easily, enjoyed being a homebody and always had friends drop in because "her door was always open" and coffee was readily available!  She and Roy owned a  Maine Coon Cat .... sadly the cat needed a new home when she moved to Missouri ... our local TV Station ended up adopting the cat as their office Mascot.  RIP dear friend we traveled many memory miles"

"I will miss Carol she was a great person and animal lover. I will always remember the day we ran around Denver and laughed so much with Demetria and went to a party, Carol was exhausted so the next day we just hung at the house and barbecued. She loved to laugh"
