Obituary: Tammi Fisher

The mother and wife leaves a legacy of kindness and generosity.

We are profoundly devastated that our beloved Tammi Fisher left us on Monday, Sept. 18, 2017.

She was 54 years young and will be remembered as an amazing woman, mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend. Tammi was truly selfless and lived her life never having uttered an unkind word about anyone or anything. She was almost a myth. Giving 100 percent of herself to family and friends and never asking for anything in return, she leaves behind a legacy of love, kindness and generosity.

Born Oct. 23, 1962, in Minneapolis, Tammi lived in Beachwood, Ohio, Mountain Brook, Ala., and Lexington, Ky., before graduating from Indiana University. After graduation, Tammi relocated to Atlanta, where she would spend her adult life cultivating a legacy of which she was unaware: Her warmth, goodness, laughter and friendship made us better human beings.

Tammi was preceded in death by her father, Jerry Zuckman. She is survived by her loving husband and best friend, Curtis Fisher; her children, Andrew and Lyndsi, who were the center of her universe; her mother, Toby Zuckman; her siblings, Cari and Michael Spangler and Bobby and Laura Zuckman; her in-laws, Diane and Martin Fisher, Jay and Jan Fisher, and Elyse Fisher; and her extended, loving family of nephews Evan and Daniel and nieces Addison and Rachel. She will truly be remembered by an entire community of family and friends, who are heartbroken.

Anyone who knew Tammi knew that her family meant everything to her and she to them; she treated her friends like part of her family. Her courage and strength over the past four years were inspiring. We will forever be endowed with her grace and determination, and it has been a privilege to know and love Tammi.
