1930 - 2014 | Obituary Condolences
JACQUELINE FISHER Jacqueline "Jaci" Ordelle Fisher, 84, passed away peacefully Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014, surrounded by loved ones, in St George, Utah. She was born March 6, 1930, in Longmont, Colo., where her father was a National Park employee. She was the eldest child of Harry Glen Deeter and Ordelle Bernice Breffle. Her father was transferred to Death Valley in the late 1950's so he would have year-round work. She continued her schooling and eventually met her husband, Lawrence Gene Fisher. Gene and Jaci moved to Las Vegas, where they raised four children. She worked for the Las Vegas sheriff's department as a dispatcher for a couple of years. Around 1968, she was introduced to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She took the missionary discussions and was the first in her family to accept the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and, at the time of her passing, was the Matriarch of her Family of somewhere around 60 Latter-day Saints. Keeping track of her family and their growth and development was one of the great joys in her later years. She always wanted the best for her family, and always had the best advice for them on being successful. She had many struggles in her life and always felt she was a stronger person because of them. She will take with her to Paradise a great knowledge, and much love from her family and friends. She enjoyed traveling, painting, journaling and crocheting, among other things. In her later life, she prided herself with being an "independent domestic goddess." In the last 20 years, she has lived in Mesquite, Quartzite, Ariz., Las Vegas, Central Point, Ore. and St. George. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Gene; her daughter, Terri Lee; and her sisters, Mary and Dolly. She is survived by three of her four children, David (Bobbie) Fisher, Susan (Matt) Mixer and Steven (Karena) Fisher; 17 grandchildren; 40 great-grandchildren; two of her four siblings, Paul and Bill Deeter; and many beloved friends. Viewing will be at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 22, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Morningside 6th Ward, 900 S. Morningside Drive, St George, UT 84790. Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 23, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 6051 Dorrell Lane, Las Vegas, NV 89131. Viewing will be at 10 a.m. prior to services.
