Arlene Plennert Fisher

Estero, Florida


                Arlene Plennert Fisher, 72, of Estero, Fla. and Harwich Port, passed away on Saturday, March 9, 2019. She had been a resident of Estero since 2016 and Harwich Port since 2007. Arlene was born December 6, 1946 in Chicago, Ill., the daughter of the late Frank Joseph and Marion (Koshiol) Plennert and sister of the late James Frank Plennert. Arlene was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She touched the lives of so many with her kindness, positivity and adventurous spirit.


                Arlene received her Master’s Degree from Providence College in Providence, R.I. She taught elementary education in Barrington, R.I. and Westford.  She finished her career as a Reading Resource Facilitator in the Westford school systems.


                Arlene perceived beauty all around her, in each and every day that she lived. Arlene walked the beach at the end of their street every evening toward sunset. Whether rain or shine, winter or summer, sick or in good health, alone or in the company of family, friends or even side by side with the occasional stranger, she would walk.  Arlene claimed she never grew tired of walking her beach, explaining (that) “depending on the lighting, the weather - all circumstances - I see something new and different each time.  No two days I walk are the same.” 


                Mrs. Fisher is survived by her loving husband of 47 years, David Bruce Fisher; her three beloved daughters, Lauren Elizabeth and her husband Michael Posmoga of Pensacola, Fla., Kristen Meridith and her husband Kevin Murphy of Merrimack, N.H. and Katherine Elaine and her fiancé Toby Sicangco of Harrison, N.J.; and two cherished grandchildren, Colin and Megan Murphy.


                A Memorial Service will be held at the First Congregational Church, 697 Main Street, Harwich, MA on May 18th at 2:00 pm. Please wear bright colors, as Arlene always loved to.


                In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial contributions be made to Dana Farber Cancer Research, Boston, MA or Hope Hospice/Joanne’s House, Bonita Springs, FL.
