Danell Rae Fisher

November 28, 1965 — March 7, 2024


In Loving Memory of Danell Rae Fisher

Danell Fisher, 58, of Glendale, AZ, passed away on March 7th, 2024, at St. Joseph Hospital in Phoenix, AZ, surrounded by her family after a courageous battle with Pancreatic Cancer. She was a beacon of light in the lives of many, leaving behind a legacy of love and cherished memories. Her vibrant spirit and boundless love touched all who had the privilege of knowing her.

Danell, the cherished daughter and third of four siblings of Gale and Peggy Schauerman, came into the world on November 28, 1965, at home in Windsor, CO. Following her graduation from Loveland High School in 1984, she pursued higher education at Bethany College, delving into the study of music theory. 

On April 19th, 1986, Danell married the love of her life, George Fisher, at King of Glory Lutheran Church in Loveland, CO. Together, they welcomed their daughter Kayla Marie into the world on August 13, 1987, in Loveland, CO.

Danell dedicated over 30 years to the block industry, starting at Valley Block in Loveland, CO, as an equipment operator before relocating to Arizona in 1998. She continued this work in Needles, CA, alongside her husband at Oldcastle Superlite, eventually settling in Glendale, AZ. Her roles ranged from production work to training and ultimately transitioning to Accounts Payable in 2019. Throughout her career, she traveled between Phoenix and Tucson, forming lifelong friendships and leaving a lasting impact on those she trained and worked with.

Danell found profound joy in life's simple pleasures, from her childhood love of twirling batons and music to indulging in hobbies such as NASCAR, woodworking with her cherished husband, and solving puzzles. She treasured moments spent shopping and embracing the vibrant atmosphere of events like the Renaissance Faire. Moreover, she found immense delight in building a collection of unique salt and pepper shakers, each holding a cherished memory or a moment of happiness.

Danell's devotion to her family was unwavering, and her presence in their lives was that of a remarkable wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend. To her family, she was a hero, a best friend, and a source of strength. Left to cherish her memory are her beloved husband, George; daughter, Kayla, and her husband, Andrew; along with her grandpets, Zeus, Daniel Tiger, & KitKat. She also leaves behind her devoted mother, Peggy; caring brother, Rick, and his wife, Cindy; and loving sisters, Robin and her husband, Jim, and Kim and her husband, Patrick. While preceded in death by her father Gale and sister-in-law Patty, Danell's memory will forever be cherished by those fortunate enough to have known her.

Danell will be deeply missed by all who knew her, but her legacy of love and strength will live on forever in our hearts. Though she may be physically gone, Danell's spirit lives on in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. Her laughter, kindness, and unwavering love will be cherished always and forever.
