Rosie Fisher

November 19, 1937 - March 10, 2019

Rosie Fisher Rosie Fisher, age 81 of Batesville, died Sunday, March 10, 2019, at her home. Born November 19, 1937, in Batesville, she is the daughter of Elizabeth (Nee: Schroeder) and Joseph "Jack" Zimmerman. She married William Fisher September 6, 1958, at St. Louis Church. She would become the parish secretary for the church, retiring in 2002 after nearly 30 years.

Bill and Rosie enjoyed traveling. While a trip to Alaska was memorable, they looked forward to the yearly family vacation where kids and grandkids would join them at a destination that was usually a beach location. Although Rosie began married life as "a horrible cook" according to Bill, he was quick to point out that she became self taught and developed into an excellent one whose lasagna and beef stroganoff will be sorely missed. She was always willing to volunteer her time and was a long time member of a monthly card club made up of her childhood friends. Her beloved dog Snuggles will miss her as will her grandchildren, who she dearly loved having around.

Rosie is survived by her husband Bill; daughters Sandra Greenwell of Tucson, Arizona, Amy Jennings of Ft. Wayne, Indiana; son Timothy Fisher of Morrow, Ohio; sister Louise Wells of Cincinnati; brother Joseph Zimmerman of Batesville; and four grandchildren. In addition to her parents, she is also preceded in death by sisters Jean Goodwin, Betty Reisinger and brother Harry (Slim) Zimmerman.

Visitation is Friday, March 15th, from 4 - 7 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home with a rosary service at 4 p.m. Funeral services are 10 a.m. Saturday March 16th, at St. Louis Church followed by burial in the church cemetery. The family requests memorials to the Srs. of St. Francis Convent in Oldenburg or Margaret Mary Health Foundation Hospice Fund.

Sending my deepest sympathy to you, Bill, in your time of loss. I know my parents have thoroughly enjoyed being your neighbors and consider you guys such dear friends. I think Mom and Rosie’s card club was a staple for decades. May you be comforted by family and friends at this time and relish the memories until you meet Rosie again. God bless you.
