Cordelia Matilda Fisher

September 19, 1932 — January 21, 2023


Sadly, Cordelia passed peacefully in her sleep on January 21, 2023.

Cordelia was born in Georgetown, Guyana on September 19, 1932. One of five children, dear sister of the late William, Avis, the late Claudine, and Doreen. Loving wife of William Fisher. Cherished mother of Rennie and his wife, Marisa. Devoted grandmother to Daniela and Erica (and husband Graham) and great-grandmother to Lionel and Grant. Sweet sister-in-law to Glenda and her partner Carol.

Cordelia’s career included teaching in a High School in Guyana, time in the UK working at White Hall, and working in various industries in Toronto, the last being financial services. She was her family’s anchor, and a vital support to William as he taught at Father Redmond Catholic Secondary School and Michael Power - St. Joseph High School.

She was a wonderful loving individual, who gave of herself freely, as was reflected by the many compliments she received from William’s fellow teachers and administrators, as well as Rennie’s friends and colleagues.

As her dear Bill says, she lived her life fearlessly, with courage and grace, and never an unkind word for anyone. Cordelia will be dearly missed by her family and to all those blessed to have her in their lives.

Heartfelt thanks to the staff at the Grenadier Retirement Residence, The O’Neill Centre, and Toronto Western Hospital Critical Care Unit.

A celebration of her life will be held at a later date. Should you wish, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Alzheimer Society .
