Gloria Culver Fisher, 86 of Fleming, NY died Monday, July 3,
2017. Born Gloria Lois Beals on Sept. 29, 1930, to Roydon
and Wilhelmina Beals in Buffalo, NY, she lived most of her life
in Southern Cayuga County.
A graduate of King Ferry Central School, Auburn Business
School and Cayuga Community College, she retired her role
as secretary at Auburn Correctional Facility after 23 years of
service. A valued 50+ year member, elder, deacon and choir
member of the Scipioville Presbyterian church, she served
several terms as clerk of session, as well as a term for the
Synod of the Northeast, representing Cayuga Syracuse
Presbytery.
Gloria was one of the first campers at Camp Casper Gregory
in 1941 and later served on the Camp Program Committee. She
worked with the bereaved and as a patient caregiver with Hospice of the Finger Lakes
for many years. She was a member of the board of managers at the Faatz Crofut Home
for Elderly, chairing and preaching Sunday worship services.
Gloria loved gardening and refinishing furniture, but most of all, she loved spending time
with family. She was a friend, caregiver and prayer warrior for many. She loved her farm
life, having worked to renovate the farmhouse, landscaping and woodlots after
retirement. She made herself available whenever family needed help with their
personal, family or farm work.
Gloria is predeceased by Coral A. Culver, the father of her three sons, and
granddaughter, Rebecca Culver. Surviving are her husband of 48 years, John Fisher,
sister Joyce (Harold) Short, brother Dr. Roy/Bub (Kathleen) Beals, sons Craig
(Marlene), Keith (Lorena) and Clair (Ellie) step children Jane (Ron) Walsh, Jeanne

To the family of Gloria Fisher,
You don't know me, but I knew Gloria for over 50 years. I grew up in her church and she is one of the faithful saints who has formed my faith. Gloria was at my confirmation and wedding, sent her prayers and support for my ordination, and maybe she was even there at my baptism (although I don't remember). When I think of Scipioville church, Gloria comes to mind and I wanted to extend my condolences to her family. May God comfort you and give you peace, and continue to remember and celebrate Gloria's legacy.
Blessings,
Rev. Pam Masten
(former Pam White and also Dave and Pat White's daughter)
