Jessica Dawne Fisher McDonough, 34, passed away January 11, 2019. While Jessica’s death was unexpected, she suffered from alcohol addiction for quite some time and her family feared the consequences would claim her life. She is now at peace and her family is grateful she is no longer suffering.
At Cherry Point, North Carolina, her parents excitedly announced her arrival on February 5, 1984. They watched her charge full steam ahead into adulthood, blazing a path for her siblings. She graduated from Cabool High School, Cabool, Missouri, in 2002 and from Missouri State University in 2004.
Despite her critical self-view, she was accepting of everyone. She was as much an instigator as she was full of compassion. She was known for her creativity, quick wit and sarcasm. She loved to sing, crochet, make gifts, and cook for her family.
Jessica is survived by her parents, James and Jill Fisher of Cabool; husband Tim McDonough; daughters Alexis and Allison; sister Justine Ebert (husband AJ); brother Jonathan Fisher; her maternal grandparents, nieces, cousins, aunts and uncles.
To heal and celebrate the Jessica that was loved, there will be a memorial potluck (she liked to feed people) at the fire station in Houston, Missouri, starting at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 27, for family and friends who wish to attend. Bring a dish and your stories.
