A Blessing to Everyone

Canton- Peace will come when we hardly notice, like the first star in the evening sky. Peace will come as the quiet morning light dawns and as purely as the water trickles from a hidden mountain brook. Peace comes to us softly and whispers in the quiet of night. All is well, our beloved Patricia “Pat” Kaye Ramsey Fisher, age 76, entered into her place of Heavenly peace on Monday, October 5, 2020.

Pat’s life journey began on August 28, 1944. She was the first child born to the late Wayne Ramsey and the late Kathryn Keifer Ramsey and she was surrounded with love and affection and wonderful memories that brought her great joy all throughout her lifetime. She was a member of the 1962 graduating class of Canton High School and Pat’s delightful personality blessed her with multitudes of friends who will never ever forget her. At the young age of 19, Pat began her career as a beautician and for 57 years she has faithfully practiced her natural talent of taking care of each client with her personal touch and making everyone feel special and simply beautiful!  It seemed as if Pat never ran out of energy. She served on the Town of Canton Beautification Committee for several years, striving to make her hometown look beautiful at each season and special holidays.  She loved to dance and one could always count on seeing Pat hit the dance floor when the band began to play at Pickin’ in the Park or at Pickin’ in the Armory on Friday evenings in Canton. Pat often frequented estate and yard sales seeming to always find the perfect treasure. She also enjoyed going to car shows and the happy memories of her delightful ocean cruise vacations always brought a smile to Pat’s beautiful face and a twinkle to her eye. Her heart runneth over with love for everyone and if she knew that someone needed a helping hand-  she was always there. She was a member of Rockwood United Methodist Church and had attended Plains United Methodist Church in Canton. Patricia Ramsey Fisher has been a blessing to so many and she will never ever be forgotten. She was a loving mother and the great pride and joy she held for her son, Todd, was immeasurable.  She was also a wonderful daughter, an amazing sister, and a friend to everyone. Our hearts are heavy with sadness but we know that peace has come to our beautiful beloved Pat.  All is well.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Wendell Fisher.

She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Todd and Lisa Fisher of Canton; grandchildren, Chelsea Riddle,  Heath Riddle, and Dylan Sutton and his wife, Lauren; also those who she loved just as her own grandchildren, Jamie Davis, Daniel Davis, Ethan Davis, and Savannah West; her sisters, Sandra Anderson, and  Debra Ramsey both of Cincinnati, Ohio and her brother, Donald Ramsey of Asheville; the love of her life and someone that filled Pat’s life with great happiness, Ronnie Bailey of Canton; her special little shorkie dog, “Babe”; and multitudes of dear friends.

In keeping with the COVID-19 concerns and regulations, the Fisher family will be holding a private family graveside service at Locust Field Cemetery in Canton. Pastor Steve Miller will be officiating. A celebration of life service to honor and remember Pat’s wonderful life will be announced and held at later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Pat’s memory, to Haywood Christian Ministries, 150 Branner Avenue, Waynesville, NC 28786.

Crawford / Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service is honored to be caring for the Fisher family.

What more can I say. The obituary described Pat very well. She has been a special friend as well as my beautician for 45-50 years. We loved to talk about our problems, spouses, family and children knowing that this conversation would not go any further. We loved talking about Todd as he was the joy of her life and always wanted what was best for him. She and Ronnie were so good for one another and going to yard sales Pat was always looking for someone else including me. Prayers and sympathy to the family.

Todd, I have been thinking about you and your family; as you know Pat and I were friends for years; we saw each other thru some troubled times but we were always there for each other; Your Mom was a true friend and a loving person; Pat was also a loving Mom her joy being you; I don't think we ever talked unless she mentioned you. I know that the past few years have been a delight for Pat after she met Ronnie; I really don't know what else to say, I am not good at saying things at times like this; but I want you to know that I and others will miss your Mom and her smiles; love you, Stella

My deepest sympathy to all of Pat's loved ones. She was my beautician for many years and a good friend. She and Ronnie attended Pickin in Armory all the time and enjoyed dancing and meeting friends there. She will be missed by a larger community of people who were her friends over the years.
Juanita Dixon
I am so sorry that Pat has passed. I have never seen her without that friendly smile. The joy that she found in being with her family was evident, as she would fill a pew in the church, and just light up when they were there with her. Todd, I know that your heart is broken, and I hope that the wonderful memories you have of your mom will help to sustain you. May God bless all of you.

Pat was such a good person. You never had to guess what she was thinking because she would sure tell you! And I loved that about her. She was a genuine person who loved life and lived it to the fullest. I always enjoyed seeing her at Pickin' in the Armory on Friday nights when I was working there. She always had a good time. Always a smile on her face. She was a very important part of the Canton Beautification Committee before it was discontinued. She gave many hours to the town and we are forever grateful. My condolences to the family and especially to Ronnie. I know she will be missed. Rest in peace my friend.

I remember the first time I met Pat as we began 7th grade. I thought then that this was someone I would enjoy having as a friend. For the next 6 years and until now, I have known that I would get a great smile and friendly words anytime we met. Our school reunions were always blessed by her presence and we will all remember her with affection. Let light perpetual shine upon her O Lord.

Todd, I was so sorry to hear about Patricia. She was a wonderful lady, always willing to help when ever needed. She would come to her cousins house Doris Duvall and do her hair for years just to help her out. What a blessing she was. She was also so proud of you and your family Todd. Every time I seen her she was telling me something about you guy. Love and prayers for each and everyone of you.

So sorry to hear of Pat's passing. She was a wonderful, caring, selfless lady who helped take care of so many people including my late mother.

Special prayers and condolences to all in the Ramsey & Fisher families and friends on the unfortunate loss of Pat. She was very special to my late mom, Elva, in perfectly beautifying her hair.

I miss the sister and friend Pat always was and will be forever. She helped me through a lot of struggles and celebrations. She was always present when our parents were in failing health and through their deaths. I miss her stories and fun. She always helped people in the community, people she didn’t even know. She gave me money to buy someone groceries when they had nothing. During covid and I lost my job she sent money to me because she wanted to help out when times were hard. She is continuing her gifts to Christian Ministry by donations that will continue to help others as she always was happy to give. I love my dear sister and I will miss her phone calls just to make sure I am alright. Rest In Peace dear sister.
Deb Ramsey
