Mary V. Fisher died on November 2, 2021. Born in Rochester in 1942, the daughter of the Rev. Frank and Janet Fisher, Mary lived a life of loving service. She was devoted to the causes of social justice, community development, the care and protection of the earth and all creatures great and small. Mary’s faithfulness to these causes was expressed most passionately in her commitment to protecting the vulnerable. When principles were at stake, Mary was an unyielding advocate; where relationships were concerned she was generous, devoted, and understanding. Mary was a graduate of Goucher College and Cornell Law School and had a Master’s Degree from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. She was an esteemed estate and tax attorney most recently with the firm Bond, Schoeneck and King.
Mary is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Deborah and Alan Lattime, her nephews, Jeffrey (Suzanne Niedzwiecki), Mark, and her niece Anne (Scott Kanzelmeyer) Lattime as well as six grand-nephews, nieces and several cousins.
