Joan H. Fischer

Age 93, of Pittsburgh, formerly of Elliott, Sheraden, and Pompano Beach, FL., on Wednesday, August 31, 2022.  Beloved wife of the late Raymond J. Fischer Sr.  Dear mother of Joanie Fischer (Joseph) Meyer, Ramona Fischer, Raymond J.

After raising five children, she was employed by Allegheny County for over 20 years advancing through the ranks of the Property Assessment Office and retired as the Supervisor of Appeals. Also served as the Democratic Party Committee Chairperson for the 28th Ward of Pittsburgh and was a part-time Deputy Constable for the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office. She instilled in her children a passion for learning and demonstrated fierce determination, persistence, and resiliency in pursuit of her personal and professional goals.
