Mary Sprott Fisher of Largo, FL, went to be with her Heavenly Father on November 4, 2019.

She was born June 15, 1916, in Auburn, IN, to Mabel W. and Kirby Sprott. She graduated from Auburn High School in 1934. She worked in Auburn and Ft. Wayne until moving to Cincinnati in 1939 where she worked for Globe Wernicke Manufacturing Co.

While in Cincinnati she met and fell in love with Alfred (Bud) Fisher and they were married on August 20, 1942, in Wilmington, NC. She served during World War II with the US Navy Waves in Washington, DC.                                                                                                             

To this union were born three children:  Allen, Kirby and Martha. She also leaves behind 8 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. Also surviving are a beloved niece Susan Pope and nephew Father Bob Sprott.

After the war they resided in Cincinnati until 1979 when they retired to live in Clearwater, FL. They moved to The Oaks of Clearwater in 2001 where her husband passed away in 2006. Mary moved to Princeton Village of Largo in 2018 where they took great care of her. She loved taking care of her family and was a really good cook especially her famous cookies which were delightful.

She was a member of Trinity Presbyterian Church in Clearwater where she was active in ministry and enjoyed the worship with her fellow believers. Heaven is blessed to have her and we were fortunate to call her Mom, Grandma, and Great-grandma. Funeral Services are scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, November 9, in Clearwater at the Chapel of Sylvan Abbey Memorial Park with graveside service following for the family.
