Sandra Lynn (Disher) Fischer was born November 24, 1968 to John and Georgine (Lammers) Disher. She grew up in Beemer and attended Beemer Elementary and Beemer High School where she was a student athlete. After graduation, she continued her education at Northeast Community College in Norfolk. Sandy worked for several area businesses which included managing, quality assurance, and customer representation and services. She was united in marriage at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in West Point on May 25, 1996 to David Fischer. In 2000, she landed her dream job at CharterWest Bank in West Point. Sandy enjoyed her work there and considered them her second family. She worked in operations and as a drive-thru teller until succumbing to the side effects of cancer which she fought courageously for 12 years. She loved seeing her many customers and friends.
Sandy was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and Guild. Sandy’s family was the love of her life and she made sure they knew it often. She never missed a chance to see her children’s activities. Sandy loved to play volleyball, walk with her husband, drive around, or just hanging out with her brother and sisters. She especially loved when her children would come over to the house. Cody would bring his not-so-little German Shepherd named “Kiah” with him. Kiah had a special bond with Sandy and would always lay on top of her always freezing cold feet! When Jordan came over, Sandy would always call Jordan her “little buddy.”
Survivors include her loving husband, David of West Point; son, Cody John and his loving dog, Kiah of Omaha; daughter, Jordan of West Point; parents-in-law, John and Arlene Fischer of West Point; sisters, Deb (Steve) Schulz of Bennington, JoAnn Ehrisman of West Point, and Pam (Dale) Holtz of Fremont; brother, Dave (Jodi) Disher of West Point; and many nieces and nephews she loved to see grow up at holiday gatherings. Sandy is preceded in death by her loving parents, John and Georgine Disher and loving grandparents, John and Irene Disher and Fred and Freda Lammers.
