Asuncion C. Fisher, surrounded by her family, passed away on March 2, 2019, at the age of 87. She was born in the Bronx on December 25, 1931 and lived in Cuba until she came back in her late teens where she eventually met and married the late John P. Fisher on September 3, 1955. They lived in the Bronx, Yorktown Heights but then settled in Pleasantville where she then lived for over 30 years. Asuncion leaves to cherish her memory, her loving daughters and son, Marianne Aponte, Carolyn Saluto and John Fisher; son-in-laws, Rich Aponte and John Saluto. Six grandchildren also survive her: Danielle (her husband Mike Callaci), Alexander, Nicole, Marisa, Anna and Samantha. She was predeceased by her loving husband in 1998 and her son, Paul in 2018.
Asuncion, known to many as “Cookie”, was a beautiful and generous person inside and out. She was the sparkle in her husband’s eye and the light of her family’s life.
