Dorothy Celeste Wolfe Fisher was born to Merritt Houston and Allie Mae Hughes Wolfe on May 23, 1930, in Louisville, Kentucky. Most people know her as "Sissie."
On March 3, 1950, she married a handsome young man named Robert Lee Fisher, Jr., who was an avid golfer. They shared sixty fantastic years together and had three daughters: Beverly Jean Fisher Hill, Robyn Celeste "Robby" Fisher, and Linda Gayle Fisher Conway. Sissie has two sons-in-law: Stanley Wayne Hill, and Douglas Linwood Conway.
Sissie became a grandmother for the first time in 1976, when Robert Stanley "Bert" Hill was born. Second grandson Jacob Reid Conway was born in 1984, and Shea Douglas Conway arrived in 1988. On March 8, 2014, she was blessed with a great-grandson, Hudson Lee Conway.
