passed away peacefully on June 30th, 2020 in her 87th year after a brave battle with Alzheimer’s. Jean was born to Henry Fredrick Abraham and Leonora Conception Rego on October 6th, 1933 in Georgetown, British Guiana (now Guyana, South America). She is survived by her loving husband of sixty-seven years Julian Fisher whose final parting words to her were “Goodbye my darling.” Jean is pre-deceased by daughter Christine (Ted) Biggs and survived by her daughter Julie (Thomas) Mascarin, and son John (Catherine) Fisher. She is loved and will be missed by her six grandchildren Mikayla, Crystal, Melanie, Justin, Shawn, and Benjamin and five great grandchildren.
Jean will be missed by her sisters Yvonne Fisher, Connie Smith, Eileen Trotter and Pamela Drawbell, and now reunited with her pre-deceased siblings Harold Abraham, Steve Abraham, Richard Abraham, and Dian Moses. Jean will be lovingly remembered by all her nieces and nephews around the world and here in Canada.
Jean will always be remembered for her generous spirit towards everyone including strangers, her infectious laughter and beautiful smile even to the end, her joyous heart, shrill whistle, always classy dressing style, polished nails, and as a wonderful dancer. She was an accomplished seamstress with incredible skills for designing and creating dresses from scratch for every occasion, reupholstering furniture, setting up new homes, and taking on just about any decorating need for family and friends. She embraced any challenge with joyful enthusiasm if it made others happy. She was a truly beautiful person both inside and out.
In honour of Mary Jean Fisher there will be a memorial Mass held at Holy Rosary Catholic Church 139 Martin St. Milton, Ontario on Tuesday, July 7th, 2020 at 11:00 AM. Jean will be interned at Holy Family Catholic Cemetery following the memorial Mass.
