Springfield, MA- Cheryl Ann Fisher, 59, of Grove Street in Greenfield died peacefully early Sunday morning, January 20, 2019 at Baystate Medical Center following a courageous battle with cancer.
Cheryl was born in Brattleboro on July 30, 1959 the daughter of Ernest and Lois (Shannon) Thompson. She was raised and educated in Brattleboro and was a graduate of Brattleboro Union High School, Class of 1977.
Cheryl lived the life of a true giver, always putting the needs of others first before her own. Loving and welcoming, she treated everyone like family. She served as the Activities Director for the Arbors at Greenfield, a position that she was passionate about and thoroughly enjoyed.
She was an animal lover, always excited to see and hear about all kinds of critters with a particular fondness for dogs, cats and birds. Trips to Disney World were her favorite, a place where she could relax and be a kid for a while. She was a true inspiration and will be sorely missed.
