Brenda Sue Fisher, 67, of Indianapolis, passed away on July 13, 2009, after a long battle with cancer.
Brenda was born June 22, 1942, in Paducah, Ky., to James L. and Martha Sue (Stubblefield) Batts. They moved to Bloomington, IL, when she was a young girl.
A 1960 graduate of Bloomington (IL) High School, Brenda studied art at Illinois State University at Bloomington. She later became an administrator for the Illinois Central Gulf Railroad, where she worked for more than 10 years.
On July 7, 1978, Brenda married David W. Fisher at First Christian Church at Bloomington, of which she was a lifelong member. They shared 31 happy years together.
As the wife of an airman, Brenda worked for the USAF Base Exchange in various capacities, including that of purchasing manager, at both Grand Forks (ND) Air Force Base and Grissom Air Force Base at Peru, IN.
In 1994, they relocated to Ocean Springs, MS. There, Brenda served as the costume manager for the Beau Rivage Casino at Biloxi. They enjoyed many years living near the beach and made many wonderful friendships. However, in 2001, they moved back to Indiana to be closer to family.
She is survived by her husband, David; a son, Eric (Amy) McKenzie, of McCordsville; a daughter, Brandy Fisher, of Indianapolis; three grandchildren, Ethan McKenzie and Jake McKenzie, of McCordsville, and Dakota Sue Fisher, of Indianapolis; and cousins, Glenn Stubblefield, of LeRoy, IL, and Ann (Larry) Walker, of Colorado Springs, CO.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her beloved grandmother, Jewell Stubblefield.
Brenda was happiest when she could cook a large meal for her extended family and the many friends she made throughout her life. She was an avid gardener and a very talented artist. Many of her pieces of work adorn the homes of family and friends. She had a keen sense of humor and an infectious laugh.
A memorial will be held July 20, at the Harry W. Moore Family Mortuary in Indianapolis. Donations may be made to American Cancer Society.
