Pat Ramsey Fisher
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.
