Nanette Hunt Fisher, 84, passed
away June 28th near her home in
Morongo Valley, California. Born
July 20th, 1934 in Redfield, South
Dakota, Mrs. Fisher was the eldest
of five children born to Fred Oliver
Hunt and Pearl Christine Levans.
The daughter of a Methodist
minister, she moved six times
before college and attended five
different schools in Oregon and
In 1956, she earned her Bachelor of Arts
from Seattle Pacific College, where she met
her future husband of 60 years, Donald Fisher.
Upon graduation, Mrs. Fisher began her career
as a Home Economics teacher at her alma
mater Monroe High School in Washington.
After marrying in 1957, the newlyweds
ventured to New York City, where in 1963
Mrs. Fisher completed her Master of Science
in Education at Hunter College. She continued
teaching amidst moves to Massachusetts, New
Jersey, and Washington, and amidst the births of
three children. Defying the strict dictates at the
time forbidding pregnant women from teaching
or attending school, Mrs. Fisher did both.
In 1964, the family relocated to southern
California, where she taught Home Economics
at El Segundo High School. She also taught
Consumer Education, and English,
and ultimately served as school
librarian. One highlight was spearheading
a student-run restaurant
known as the “Eagle Feeder.”
In 1968, Mrs. Fisher became a
licensed Marriage and Family
Counselor, which she practiced
alongside teaching. In 1986, she
also became a licensed realtor, and
in 1990 a broker when she and
Don founded Park Place Realty in
Wrightwood, California. In 1995, after a 39-year
teaching career, Mrs. Fisher retired from ESHS,
and for the next 15 years she ran Park Place
Realty before retiring to Morongo Valley.
Her interests included literature, theatre, film,
art, and music. She shared her delight in cooking,
dress-making, ice cream, flowers, and games
with those close to her. She loved traveling, and
some of her favorite destinations were Switzerland,
South Africa, the Caribbean, the Panama Canal,
the Holy Land, the Amazon, Greece and Italy.
She is survived by loving siblings John,
Charlotte, Christine, and Fred, beloved children
Daniel, Tamara, and Kim, and cherished
grandchildren Jessica, Nelson, and Laura. A
memorial service will be held in Manhattan
Beach this Saturday, July 20 at 2:00. If interested
