On April 20, 2020, Peggy Adams Fischer's spirit climbed to the top of the mountain to be carried off into the heavens. She was 90 years old.

Born and raised in Jenkins, Kentucky, just over the Virginia state line, she attended the University of Kentucky. She studied both TV and Radio Broadcasting and Elementary Education. Peggy did intern work at TV stations in Louisville, KY and Cincinnati, OH, before returning to her hometown to teach fifth grade.

After her marriage to her college sweetheart, George Fischer, she worked to establish a strong, nurturing and loving family for her husband and son in Roanoke, VA. She privately tutored, and prepared special records and reports for federal projects at her husband's business. She was an active band parent during her son's high school years, and a long-time member of Greene Memorial United Methodist Church. She enjoyed square dancing with George for many years, and was a member of the Garden Gate Garden Club. Her biggest joy was being a loving wife, mother and grandmother.

She leaves behind her devoted and faithful husband, George, to whom she was married for almost 66 years. She is also survived by her son, Richard (Martha) and grandchildren Bradley Fischer (Rachel) and Ashleigh Fischer; great grandson Daniel Fischer; step grandchildren Laura Brooke Rich (Kyle Counce) and Kathryn Tapp (Nick) as well as 6 step great grandchildren; sister Lois Adams Miller, niece Nancy Morrow (Bob), nephew John Miller (Sandy) and a host of other family and friends.

Arrangements are being handled by Oakey's Funeral Home. A private graveside service will be held Friday, April 24.

Peggy strongly believed that a friendly hug gave a sense of well being and was a proper greeting to family and friends. In lieu of flowers or donations, her desire would be that you share a friendly and loving hug with someone once the social distancing has ceased.

We truly have lost a very special spirited lady in our world. Peggy was delightful, she always had a kind smile and a bright cheerful conversation to share. I enjoyed her visits to our office and I looked forward to catching up on life events. We both loved home made apple butter and we'd usually talk about all the details of our recipes. I will greatly miss her.... but she will never be forgotten. My heartfelt sympathy to George, Richard, family and friends. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace sweet friend.

It was at Nancy and Bob's wedding reception that I first watched Peg and George in action on the dance floor, after having met them a day or so prior to the wedding. As a musician and extended member of the Miller family, first came the honor of meeting their relatives from Ohio and Kentucky, and then as a musician watching Peg and George dance I experienced both having my breath taken away while realizing that the two of them seemed to effortlessly glide over the floor with smiles of ease. They gave a gift to me to see their response to music, in motion. I was at the time mentally transported back in time to my learning the choral work THE HYMN OF JESUS by Gustav Holst. Its text is based on the New Testament Apocryphal Acts of St. John. One of its sections has a driving rhythm addressing this text: "Fain would I pipe for you; dance, ye all. The heavenly spheres make music for us. The Holy Twelve dance with us. All things join in the dance." Christ speaks here as God in Three Persons, the Holy Trinity, thus the "us" rather than "I." as Moses recorded in Genesis "Let US make man in our image...…" The other side of eternity now gains she whom we lost in the flesh as she joins her Savior and the Holy Twelve, the Virgin Mary, and all the believers in an experience awaiting our joining them. May we continue walking by faith rather than by sight, especially in this time of profound viral difficulty. For the joy Peg shares as she arrives there, all other believers shall ever know, to paraphrase C. Austin Miles' hymn "In the Garden." Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and may light perpetual shine upon her. Amen

Dear Richard and family, We send our thoughts, love and a virtual hug to you as we read the news of your Mother’s passing. Such a lovely picture with her bright smile - and loved reading her story, especially with the reference to band parenting days! We know she will be missed in your world, but also know that you will be comforted with wonderful memories of your Mother’s love and devotion.
Our thoughts to your Dad - and blessings to you today and in the days ahead.
Sincerely, Dana and Peggy Walker
