She will be laid to rest at Hillcrest Cemetery in Louisa, VA, beside her beloved husband Robert “Bob” John Fisher (1932-2009), to whom she was married for 57 years.
Carole loved everyone–her family, friends, and animals most of all. She loved all moments that brought people together: home cooked meals she lovingly prepared, football games, Christmas time, family gatherings, and summer and winter breaks when her granddaughters would come to stay. She had several lifelong friends, never met a stranger, and brightened up a room with her caring nature. Carole was a true lover of music and especially appreciated the emotional depths of opera and classical music. She will be dearly missed.
