Virginia “Jenny” Fischer, 75, of Mountain Grove, Missouri, passed away on Sunday, December 5, 2021, at Ozarks Healthcare in West Plains, Missouri.
She was born on February 17, 1946, the daughter of Roy and Rethel Clark.
Jenny raised three children and when the need arose, she raised her granddaughter, Tammy, from a toddler to the age of 18 and then again sacrificed to finish raising her grandson, Isaac, from middle school through high school. She had an infectious smile and a compliment for everyone she saw while out and about. Above all, Jenny loved her family fiercely and nothing made her happier than the arrival of a new baby into the family.
Jenny lived in Mountain Grove the majority of her life, on South Street then Doris and finally the Mountain Grove Apartments. She was a longtime and faithful member of First Church of God in Mountain Grove. After suffering a series of strokes, she spent the last year at Kabul Nursing Home in Cabool, Missouri, where the staff loved and cared for her.
Jenny was preceded in death by her parents; a brother, Roy William “Billy” Clark; a sister, Dottie Reel; and her daughter, Kimberly Ivie Blanchette.
She is survived by her sons, Billy Joe Clark and Robert Hutsell and wife Vickie; grandchildren, Tammy Clark, Adam Richardson and wife Erin, Isaac Collins and fiancé Ariel McGinnis, Allison Crewse and husband Riley, Tanner Hutsell and wife Ashlie, Jordan Hutsell, and Samantha Hutsell; great-grandchildren, Gracie, Hallie, MacKenzie, Luke and Cody Richardson, Aden and Matthew Rutz, Brady and Baiya Crewse, baby Calvin Crewse, who is on the way, and Eli McGinnis; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends who will miss her very much.
Memorial visitation was held on Thursday, December 9, 2021, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the funeral chapel. Interment will be in Green Mountain Cemetery at a late date. Arrangements were under the direction of Elliott-Gentry-Carder Funeral Home of Cabool. Online condolences may be made at www.egcfuneralhome.com.
