Obituary

Mrs. Carole Fisher (née Finn) died peacefully at home, surrounded by her family on June 27, 2021, in Simsbury, CT at the age of 80.

Carole is survived by her daughter, Katherine (Fisher), and son-in-law, Davin Kiesewetter; grandsons Jacob and Evan Kiesewetter all of Simsbury, CT; and her sister Susan Smith (Finn) of Middletown, WI. She is preceded in death by her beloved husband of 46 years, David A. Fisher Jr., of Canton, CT; and her parents.

Carole was born on November 25, 1940, in Washington D.C. to Bernice and William Finn. At age 5, the whole family relocated to Paris, France. Her father was involved in diplomatic efforts to reestablish agriculture throughout post-world-war II Europe. The myriad global travel experiences were a source of vivid and fond memories. She adored sharing tales of cultural and international adventures, experiences, and the occasional foibles or faux pas.

She is eternally grateful for the educational foundation provided by the American School of Paris in her early education. She earned her undergraduate degree from Cornell University in 1962 and later a Master’s degree from Pennsylvania State University in 1963. She began teaching in Schenectady, NY, where she married her beloved husband, David, in 1966.

Carole and David resided in Canton throughout their marriage and shared life. Carole taught for 38 years at Conard High School, in West Hartford, CT. She was an accomplished and respected teacher and loved to watch students of all ages explore and learn.

Following her retirement in 2009, Carole cherished spending time with friends and family, and entertaining at her home in Canada Lake, NY. She enjoyed all manner of activities including gardening, kayaking, and watching her beloved hummingbirds. She was a dedicated member of several church committees and missions projects through the First Congregational Church of Canton Center. She was an active board member for the Caroga Historical Association Museum, in upstate NY, where she enjoyed organizing fundraising events, musical performances, art exhibitions, and artisan craft fairs.

Carole loved her loyal canine companions deeply and basked in their companionship. In lieu of flowers, please send memorial donations to ECAD (Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities) at PO Box 831, Torrington, CT. The family would like to thank Mclean Hospice for their compassionate care and support.

Calling hours are set for Thursday, July 1, 2021 between 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM at the Vincent Funeral Home, 120 Albany Turnpike, Canton, CT. All are welcome to attend and reminisce on Carole’s dynamic and impactful life. To share online messages of condolence, stories, photos and /or memories please visit www.vincentfuneralhome.com to view or add to Carole’s “Book of Memories”.

A memorial service will be planned for later in the summer at the First Congregational Church of Canton Center.

A number of years ago when I came by boat close to her dock on Canada Lake to show friends the house my grandfather built, Carole was on the dock and graciously asked us in to see the house. Since first my mother and then my brothers and I spent our summers growing up in that house, I had lots of stories to share with Carole. We quickly became friends, and every summer Carole would come over to our house on the golf course. Also my wife, Linda, and I cohosted with Carole dinners for the Caroga Arts musicians, and we all served together on the the Board of the Caroga Museum. With all these various connections we became close, and Linda and I will miss that friendship and working with her very much. Our conversations together with her, whether over dinner or while working on a Caroga Museum or Caroga Arts project, were always deep and lively. Linda and I send our condolences to Kate and the rest of Carole's family.

Carole and I shared many pleasant times during 20+ years at Conard H.S.. We served on committees together and spent many Saturday mornings administering SAT testing at the school. She was a consummate professional and she always brought a positive aura to whatever task she undertook. Thank you, Carole, for being you. My sincere sympathies to Carole’s family.

I had Mrs. Fisher as a teacher for a few classes at Conard during the early 80's. She taught me so much included empathy and kindness. Through out the years since I have often thought of her and wished I could have told her how much she meant to me. My deepest condolences to her entire family.

Carole was such a supportive and loving person that was always looking out for others. I had the honor of serving with her on the Missions Committee at church where she was always a patient and compassionate presence. She helped me in so many ways...by understanding the nuances of being a teacher, always encouraging us to host and travel internationally and explore new possibilities. Most of all, she was a strong supporter when we permanently took in our cousin into our home. Katie and family, our deepest condolences to you.
