Our beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother passed away on Monday September 14, 2020. Marcia was born on November 21, 1929 to Edward and Louise McConoughey in Kansas City, MO. She moved to Phoenix, AZ when she was 11 years old and attended North High and Arizona State University where she received her Master’s Degree in Education. While living in Phoenix she met and married Peter W. Fisher.
Marcia taught 5th and 6th grade (gifted program) for 35-years in the Osborn School District at Encanto, Clarendon and Grandview Elementary Schools. She enjoyed giving back to the community. She was very active in her sorority alumni associations (Gama Phi Beta).

She enjoyed traveling, golfing and spending summers in San Diego, CA and at the cabin in Munds Park, AZ. She enjoyed playing golf at Moon Valley Country Club and Pinewood Country Club for several years.

Fisher, her sons, David Holland, Thomas Holland and his wife Deborah Holland, Scott Fisher and his wife Nancy Fisher and her grandchildren Zachary Holland and his wife Jeanne Holland, Jennifer Fisher, Dustin Fisher, Lauren Kraushaar and great-grandchildren Edward Holland and Andrew Holland.
She will be missed very much and our hearts are full and content knowing that she is reunited with family and friends in Heaven and enjoying God’s Glory. We thank her for teaching us how to love and enjoy life and that the cup is always half full. Her optimism and love for family, friends and life was truly contagious.
