Lillian Fisher

Fisher, Lillian, “Muffin”, “Lil” and “Minka” (O’Connor) age 81, formerly of Randolph, MA, Ft. Lauderdale and Tamarack FL passed away Sunday January 5, 2020 with her family by her side. Lillian was the child of the late Lillian and Hanley O’Connor. She worked at the Longwood Hospital as a Labor and Delivery Nurse welcoming newborns into the world with her huge Hollywood smile. She also assisted her husband Tom beginning a family-owned business before working in the Oral Surgery field until pursuing her true passion for dance. Lil became a dancer as well as the Lead Choreographer for The Fabulous Florida Follies, an elite group of retired showgirl dancers who performed throughout the Florida entertainment circuit raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for less-fortunate children. Minka’s greatest thrill was taking her family away for their annual Fisher Family vacations. Being with her kids and grandkids was never a rest for her because she played the hardest among all the kids, much too busy to ever slow down.

Lillian was born in Boston, MA and travelled the world with her husband, Tom, to whom she was married for 64 years. She was blessed by an extensive list of friends and family. Lillian is survived by her husband, Thomas; daughter Jacquelyn and her husband Robert Churchill; son Timothy and his wife Robin Fisher; and daughter-in-law Denise Fisher. She was predeceased by her son Thomas Fisher II. She was blessed to have seven grandchildren; Thomas Fisher III, Gregory Churchill, Jillian (Fisher) Harrington, Alyson Churchill, Jamie Fisher, Kimberly Fisher, and the late Dena Marie Fisher, as well as two great-grandchildren, Addison and Logan Harrington. Dear sister Grace Levesque and Patricia O'Connor.

Visiting hours will be held at the Hurley Funeral Home, 134 So. Main St. (Rt. 28), Randolph on Wednesday January 15th from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm followed by a eulogy ceremony at 7:00 pm. Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend.

My dear Mink,
The last time we spoke I knew it would be the last time. I cried cried and cried but not in vain but because you lived an amazing life and accomplished everything and more that you wanted. You taught me more than you realize and I’m forever grateful to be your grandson. Please tell my sister and father I miss them.
Ta ta for now

Dear, Dear Lillian, she was the epitome of a wonderful lady. I had the honor of calling her my dear friend for 25 years and she will be missed greatly. My trips to the Boston area will never be the same. I always called her once I left the car rental agency at Logan airport. So many happy memories with her and the family both in Massachusetts and here in Florida. My utmost condolences to her dear husband Tom, her beautiful family and the many friends she made over the years, especially in dance. She is now tapping through the streets of Heaven with many following her shouting, "Lead the way Ginger" and she is. I love and will always miss you sweet, sweet, Lillian Fisher, "Muffin" as she was always affectionately called by Tom! xoxoxox <3 <3 <3

We loved her because she loved us unconditionally. Every time we were together there was nothing but laughter and story telling. As Timmy is my brother I also thought of Lillian as family. We will always treasure the memories of escapades from Randolph to Bermuda. Such a beautiful person! I know she will continue to look down on us with her incredible smile!
