Eleanor Fay (Adcock) Fisher

1946 ~ 2022 (age 75)


   Eleanor Fay (Adcock) Fisher, age 75, of Scottsville, passed away and was welcomed by the Heavenly Angels Choir on Tuesday, January 4, 2022 at Martha Jefferson Hospital.

   She was born on August 5, 1946 in Charlottesville, a daughter of the late Buford Stinson and Dorothy Mae (Ragland) Adcock.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her former husband, Cecil William Fisher, Sr.; and a brother, Buford S. Adcock, Jr.

   Fay retired from the University of Virginia, where she worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant at the former Blue Ridge Hospital. She attended Sharon Baptist Church and loved visiting nursing homes in the area where she sang, read the Bible, and prayed with residents.  She often visited the elderly and shut-ins, checking on and preparing meals for them, and attended the Scottsville Senior Center and Mulberry Grove Baptist Church Senior Group. 

   Survivors include her son, Randall “Randy” Fisher (Kathy) of Howardsville; a sister-in-law, Julia Adcock of NC; two stepchildren, Ryan and Destiny; and a number of extended family, too numerous to mention; as well as special friends.

   A funeral service will be held at Thacker Brothers Funeral Home, Scottsville at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, January 11, 2022. A family graveside committal will be held, earlier in the day, at 11 a.m. at Holly Memorial Gardens, Charlottesville.  Services officiated by Reverend Perry Clore.

  In honor of Fay and in lieu of flowers, pay a kindness forward. Visit a nursing home, call and check on friends and family or bring a meal to a shut-in, as Fay would have done. 

   Thacker Brothers Funeral Home, Scottsville Location is handling the arrangements.  Family and friends may share memories and photos at
