Donna Marie Pinter
10/7/1972 - 11/30/2018
My mom was stricken with cancer in 2008, and after a long struggle with the disease she lost her battle on Friday November 30th, 2018. While Donna may be at peace, the battle still continues on with her family as we struggle to give her the dignified service that she wanted in the end and deserved. At this time any and all donations are greatly appreciated, even as little as a dollar would go a long way. At this season of giving your generosity would not be unnoticed. Our family thanks you sincerely in these times and may your family be blessed by your act of kindness.

Alex DeKarske
10/23/1993 - 11/27/2018
A Memorial Service for Alex DeKarske will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018 in Fisher Funeral Chapel. Visitation will be held from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. (The server that streams www.fisherfunerachapel.com is currently down.)

When someone so young is suddenly gone from our lives, we are shaken to the core. Remember how you felt when you heard that Alex DeKarske had died. You were in shock. How can we possibly imagine how his parents, siblings and grandparents are feeling? There is no way we could even come close to knowing how they are feeling. The most important thing we can do is actually quite simple - just be there for them!

We need to pray for this family. Show them love and support. What they need most is our presence. To be there to hold them and "hush" which means just lend a listening ear. This loss was tremendous and it was unexpected. It has rocked their world. Don't send them flowers - they will die, too. Don't buy knick-knacks that collect dust. Give them a hand up out of the depths of this deep chasm. Maybe you don't even know them - do you have any idea how awesome it is for a grieving family to see anonymous donations made in memory of their son? If each one of us makes a small donation - together we can help restore their faith that there truly is goodness in this world.

6/17/1952 - 12/2/2018
John Savin La Fleur, Jr., 66, of Columbia, slept into the arms of Jesus on Sunday, December 2, 2018, at Boone Hospital Center in Columbia. John Savin La Fleur, Jr. was born on June 17, 1952, in Alexandria, LA to the late John Savin La Fleur, Sr. and Juanita La Fleur. He was the second eldest of 11 children, raised in Detroit, MI, where he attended St. Andrew’s & Benedict School, as well as, schools in the Detroit Public School system. Later, John went on to pursue a career in Auto Mechanical Repair, obtaining his certification, becoming talented in multiple areas of expertise. Eventually, John moved from Detroit, MI to Columbia, MO in the mid 1980’s, making it his permanent home. John’s tremendous love, passion, and thrill of race cars was undeniable to anyone that was blessed to know him. Throughout his career, he demonstrated his creativity and built many notable cars from scratch. However, we all know that two of them, “Goofy” and “Christine” were especially dear to him, being his all time favorites. John had an amazing, charismatic personality with an infectious laugh which touched everyone he met. John’s humor and generosity allowed him to make fast friends with anyone and to develop friendships that endured through time. John spent the majority of his life self- employed, and as a proud owner of multiple auto repair shops in Columbia throughout the years. John’s auto shops were more than a business to him and to countless others; they were a safe place to relax, enjoy his hilarious jokes, to partake in amazing BBQ and endless conversation. Truly, John touched the lives of all that were fortunate enough to know and to love him. John leaves his devoted wife, Marsha Hayes- La Fleur to celebrate and cherish his memories. John’s remarkable compassion and kind heart enabled him to share an unconditional fatherly love by birth or marriage with 7 children: Janel La Fleur of Detroit, MI, Kwame (Felecia) Baines of St. Louis, MO, Reginald (Cherish) Hayes, Damone Hayes both of Columbia, MO, Rahdika (Tristan) Swann of Stafford, VA, Ladonna Redden of San Antonio, TX, Daruis Hayes and his precious baby girl, J’na Hayes both of Columbia, Mo.

Kenneth Zawadzki Sr.
9/24/1950 - 11/26/2018
UPDATE: Money given today has helped us reach the goal! The Zawadzki family would like to thank all of you for your donations - and to those donating in memory of a family member who was also a veteran - your gift was especially meaningful and acknowledged.

Throughout the United States, today is known as "Giving Tuesday." Unlike "Black Friday" or "Cyber Monday" this day was started as an alternative way to celebrate the gift-giving traditions at Christmas time...a way to help worthwhile charities while avoiding the commercialization of the holidays. So in the spirit of the season, listen to Kenneth Zawadzki Sr.'s story. Life had never been easy for Kenneth. One of 22 children, Kenneth grew up in hard times in Chicago. At the age of 19, Kenneth answered the call to duty and served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. Little did he know then that Agent Orange, the herbicide used during the war, would create the cancer that would eventually be his demise. Kenneth came home from the war and started a family. In 1980, his failing eyesight prevented his ability to work and he has been on disability since that time - unfortunately the SSI program he was enrolled in does not provide burial benefits. . To accept trustee assistance, you must give up the right to have any kind of public funeral service - and his family wanted to be able to have a dignified service. The Veterans Administration is providing a free space, opening fees and marker at the Marion National Cemetery - which also saves a space for his widow's burial in the future - a very generous benefit to veterans. The family had saved a small amount of money, Cass County provides $100 for Veterans upon death and Fisher Funeral Chapel extended a Veteran's discount. Now, we are starting a Fund the Funeral account to enable friends and community members to pitch in to honor this Veteran's life. Maybe donate a couple bucks in memory of special Veterans in your life as a way of helping their fellow comrade? Your kindness is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
