Fisher, Bobbie Lee "Bob"  
BOBBIE LEE FISHER October 28, 1928 ~ January 5, 2017 "If a person can be measured by the love they leave behind, there is no doubt that Bob Fisher was a great man." Bobbie "Bob" Lee Fisher, 88, passed away at the Ray Hickey House in Vancouver, WA, Thurs., Jan. 5, 2017 of natural causes. He was born in Nevada, MO on Oct. 28, 1928 to Nellie Homey and was an only child. He spent his childhood growing up in Missouri. Upon graduating, Bob moved to California and spent the next 20 years with the Air Force (including time in the reserves). It was during his 10 years with the Glendale Police Department that he met the love of his life, Harriett, who he married on Aug. 17, 1957 at The Little Church of the West in Las Vegas, NV. Two daughters, many side jobs painting houses to help support his family, and the desire for a better life, brought him to Washington state in 1963; finally settling in Vancouver in 1970. Bob loved fishing, camping, boating and travel, all with his family. His love of travel grew after retiring from a 20-year career with Grange Insurance Co. He began volunteering with the Luepke Senior Center, taking groups on tours as grand as Scotland and as simple as the local casinos. With his wife by his side, her running the show while he told his stories, they would take the close knit groups (friends) on many adventures. This was the best job he ever had, a true passion. Bob was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend. Bob is survived by his wife, Harriett Fisher of Vancouver; daughters, Cindy (husband Frank) Coombs and Karen (husband Scott) Sauer; grandchildren, Chris (wife Jennifer) Blanchette, Justin (wife Liz) Coombs, Megan (husband Zach) Etter, Joshua (wife Kathryn) Sauer; and 8 great- grandchildren. Bob will be best remembered for his love of life, his laughter, and his stories. He will be missed by many. Please sign his guest book at: www.columbian.com/obits .

Kennedy, Dorothy M.  
DOROTHY M. KENNEDY February 12, 1923 ~ January 9, 2017 Dorothy M. Kennedy passed away January 9, 2017, just one month shy of her 94th birthday. Born February 12, 1923 to Stewart and Ada Drew, she grew up in the Vancouver, WA area with siblings, Lorett and Elden. In 1942, Dorothy married Marion E. Kennedy. Shortly after their marriage, Marion was drafted into the US Army. Dorothy accompanied him to various training camps in the United States until he was deployed to the European conflict of WWII, where he served as an engineer under General George Patton. Dorothy kept many mementos of his service years. Upon Marion's return from active military duty, they purchased a dairy farm in the Lakeshore area. They had 4 children-Ed, Anne, Jean and Chris. In 1959, they relocated to the Manor area where Marion managed a large dairy operation and farmed 1500 acres of land. The current campus of WSU Vancouver is part of the land that they farmed. Dorothy was a devoted wife and mother, working hard supporting her family in all pursuits including her children's school activities, sports, 4-H and youth activities. She sewed clothing, gardened, canned fruits and vegetables and was always present during any performances or presentations that her children were involved in. Marion and Dorothy were both involved in the local and state Holstein Association, the local and state Dairy Federation, the Clark County Fair, Dairy Wives booth and showing Holstein cattle at various events. In 1966, Marion and Dorothy hosted a Japanese Agricultural exchange worker as part of a pilot program giving young Japanese men an opportunity to learn American farming methods. They continued hosting these workers for a number of years. Many of these young men became lifelong friends. Dorothy traveled to Japan for the 20th anniversary of the exchange program, affording her the opportunity to see several of her boys and their families. Marion passed away in 1980 with Dorothy remaining active in the dairy farming effort, which included cooking meals and caring for her grandchildren during harvest time. She was treasured by all 7 of her grandchildren whom she loved without measure. Dorothy was a marvelous cook, but her pies were magical-they once brought high dollar donation at a benefit auction. All her life Dorothy loved cats, flowers and birds. She always had a least one cat, usually two and would care for any outliers that seemed to have no family. She was a kind and loving person, devoted to her family, loved and honored the United States and remained interested in politics all her life. She was an active member of the Christian Science church, serving in various capacities during her adult life. Upon injuring her back in 2014, after a short convalescence period, she relocated to the Hampton at Salmon Creek for assisted living. She remained an independent spirit until her passing. Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband, Marion in 1980; and her daughter, Jean Voorhees in 2011. She is survived by children, Ed Kennedy, Jr., Anne Schultz, Chris Watters; 7 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; sisters-in-law, Welles Pederson and Jane Kennedy; plus many special nieces and nephews. A Celebration of Life memorial service will be held January 29, 2017 at 3p.m. at Evergreen Memorial Chapel. Please sign her guest book at: www.columbian.com/obits .
