FISHER, Holly
December 1994 - August 2018
Image 1
In December 2017, Holly received the devastating news that the cancer she had once beaten, had returned and this time, it had spread. Her doctors at the Odette Cancer Center, Dr. MacKay and Dr. Huynh and Dean Waters from Sunnybrook did all that they could but in the end, it was Holly’s decision to live what life she had left, to the fullest. With nursing support from CCAC, in specific Patricia and Roderick, Holly was able to take a much needed vacation to the Dominican and to attend her sister’s wedding. In between, there were trips to the cottage and family gatherings. Holly never complained, never asked 'why me’, never felt sorry for herself. She was strong and faced her cancer head on, working hard to stay as self sufficient as possible, right to the end. On Friday August 10, 2018, Holly passed away at home, surrounded by her family who are deeply heartbroken at the loss of such a loving, caring, strong soul. There is some resolve knowing that she is no longer suffering, no longer in pain but our hearts are broken just the same. Arrangements have been made at PAUL O'CONNOR FUNERAL HOME, 1939 Lawrence Ave. E, Scarborough, ON (between Warden and Pharmacy). In keeping with Holly’s modest and no "churchy" wishes, a viewing will be held on Wednesday August 15, 2018 starting at 5:30pm with a small service in the chapel at 6:30pm. A reception will be held following the service. All are welcome to attend. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.
