Dear Barb and family,
I am so sorry about Babs’ death. I remember her from Faith Church and she always had a quick smile with just a hint of mischief in it. My love and prayers to you all.

To the family of this memorable, sweet lady. I had the privilege of taking five years of piano lessons from Mrs. Fisher (as I called her) in the late 70s, early 80s. She is where I got my start for the love of piano playing. Even though I hated when she made all of her students go to Guild, and we spent the entire year working on all the pieces that were to be judged (in my case 10-15 pieces), I really learned a lot from her and have never forgotten her. May you all find peace in her passing as you relive your special memories of her.
