Obituary for Katherine Fisher

October 14, 2000 - November 23, 2018
Alamo Heights, Texas | Age 18

Kate's infectious smile presented a deep kindness and acceptance of everyone.


Kate Fisher lived a beautiful life. Kate was loved beyond measure and she loved so many. Kate's parents, brothers, family, extended Saint Mary's Hall community, and friends around the world are incredibly proud of Kate and the young woman she had become. Sadly, on November 22nd, Kate passed from this life. While this is a tremendous tragedy and an incredible loss, we know that Kate lives on in all of us and now with God.

Kate's infectious smile presented a deep kindness and acceptance of everyone. Kate was a strong, independent, brilliant young woman who excelled in whatever she pursued. Her academic awards, a multitude of leadership roles, extracurricular activities, varsity tennis, and national recognitions in speech & debate are impressive, yet what she will be remembered most for is her ability to inspire others to reach their potential, to teach, to listen, to persist, and to be a compassionate friend to every one of us.

We can remember Kate through a few of her favorite quotes:
• "If you're always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be." Maya Angelou.
• "If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader." Dolly Parton
• "Women face inordinate amounts of pressure to conform to societal standards." Kate Fisher
• "We are proving that our voices will always be heard." Kate Fisher

Kate is survived by her loving parents, Lauren and Eric Fisher; her brothers, Jack and Andrew; her grandparents, Dr. Walter Dyck of Temple, Texas, Lana Dyck of Belton, Texas, Joyce and Larry Fisher of Columbus, Indiana, and Linda and Allan Gorton of Fair Oaks Ranch, Texas; along with seven aunts and uncles and ten cousins.

Services will be held at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 at Saint Luke's Episcopal Church, located at 11 St. Luke's Lane, Alamo Heights, Texas 78209.

In lieu of flowers the family requests contributions be made to Haven for Hope, San Antonio's comprehensive resource for our community homeless and their children. Kate volunteered frequently at Haven for Hope in the children's day care center. Donations can be made in Kate's honor online at:
