Frances Shirley Aussicker
ALBANY — A woman who loved to help others, at her business or in her family, Frances Shirley Aussicker, died on Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2011, after a long battle with breast cancer. She was 63.
“Frances loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, and observing all wildlife, especially birds,” her family wrote in a tribute. “She had a creative talent for arranging flowers and plants, and for interior decorating, having many people ask for her advice.
“Frances had her own school bus transportation business, and enjoyed the relationships she had with the children and their parents. She also worked for many years at a residential facility in Schenectady, The Eddy, and as a waitress for Grandma’s Restaurant in Albany, where she thoroughly loved the people she met there
“Frances will be missed by many, many friends and family. She always had a smile for whomever she met and tried always to assist and support those she knew and loved.”
The tribute concludes, “Franny will remain in the hearts of her loved ones forever.”
She was the beloved daughter of the late Frances Fox Tice, and was married to the late Irving Fisher of Albany.
She is survived by her husband, Donald Aussicker, of Albany; her children, two sons, Eric Fisher and his wife, Tamara, of East Berne, and Joshua Fisher and his wife, Mitzi, of Arizona, and one daughter, Sarah Fisher, of Albany.
