WyGonda Joy Fisher, age 60, was called home on Tuesday, October 26, 2021 after a courageous battle with breast cancer. WyGonda was born in DeWitt, Arkansas on May 6, 1961 to Glendel and Sarah Ann (Herrmann) Fisher. Her twin sister, LaRonda, arrived a few minutes after. She was a lifelong resident of DeWitt. WyGonda, who was equally called by her middle name, Joy, truly lived up to her name. She radiated joy and love to all who knew her. She was a kind and gentle soul who loved helping and serving others. She adored family and friends, and she showed her love through gifts and acts of kindness. She and her mother were an inseparable team. After the passing of her father in 1997, WyGonda was a constant help and companion to her mother for the remainder of her days. WyGonda graduated from DeWitt High School in May 1979. She also started her walk with Lord Jesus that same month. She was an active member of the General Assembly and Church of the Firstborn, and she was a devoted servant her entire life. WyGonda worked as a custodian for many years, cleaning and caring for the homes of multiple families and the DeWitt Elementary School. She is survived by her mother, Sarah Fisher; siblings, Diane Fisher, Vance (Teresa) Fisher, and Maleta (Dewayne) Schmidt; brother-in-law, Kip Payton; sister-in-law Lynnette (Van) Saunders; nephews, Travis Fisher and Statler Schmidt; nieces, Emily Fisher, Kendra (Brad) Rainey, Bethany (Craig) Ellenberg, Autumn (Connor) Cunningham, Nicole (DJ) Barnes, Haley Fisher, Makalynn Schmidt, and Melissa (Kyle) Luebke; and several great nephews, family members and friends.
