Fisher, Carol Ann

Carol Ann Fisher, 72, my beloved wife and soulmate of 50 years, passed away Thursday, March 12, 2020 after a courageous battle against leukemia. Carol was born May 27, 1947 in Canton, to Elton and Annabelle (Miller) Kinsley – their first child. She resided in and around Hartville most of her younger years before moving to Medina in March of 1969.

We met in August of 1969 while she was employed at the Red Barn Restaurant and have been together ever since. Carol and I were married on June 12, 1972 by Judge Carroll B. McClure.

Carol always had a smile and kind word for everyone she met, even strangers. She had a beautiful smile, musical laugh, warm brown eyes and a loving personality. She was very spiritual with a loving soul and she studied and taught Astrology, Numerology and other Metaphysical sciences and enjoyed setting up at Psychic Fairs, where she was known as the Angel Card Lady.

Carol enjoyed spending our time together, vacationing in Florida, spending time with her family, crocheting, enjoying our cats, reading, watching TV, playing online solitaire and life in general. She believed in living each day to the utmost.

Cindie is survived by her husband of 40 years, Berndt; her son, Michael; her daughter, Hayley; her grandchildren, Franklin and Clara; and her father, Pat.  She is reunited in death with her mother, Shirley and her brothers, Thomas, Christopher, and David.

Cindie’s life can be defined by service to her family and community.  She was a devoted wife (“George”), mother, grandmother (“Nonnie”), daughter, sister, aunt, and friend.  Cindie was selfless, and putting others first was the only way she knew.  Cindie’s favorite times were when family and friends could “gather” and enjoy each other’s company.  She was also particularly proud of her role as “Nonnie” as she had a tremendous impact on her grandchildren’s lives in a short amount of time.

Cindie served her community by her involvement in various local non-profit organizations.  Notably, she spent 17 years as the Executive Director of the HANDS Foundation where she led countless fundraisers that helped the lives of 1000’s of senior citizens in Medina County.  After leaving HANDS, she focused her attention on a new passion:  raising awareness of addiction and the stigma attached to mental health issues.

Cindie would welcome anyone and everyone to “gather” for a celebration of her life on Sunday March 8 at The Barn at Mapleside Farms at 1:00 p.m.  The Barn is located at 294 Pearl Road, Brunswick, OH 44212.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Cathy’s House at www.cathyshouse.net.
