Martha Grace Fisher, 87, passed on Saturday, February 18, 2017 in Tampa, FL. "Grace" was born in a humble house in a part of Tampa Florida known as Seminole Heights on August 7, 1929. She was preceded in death by her parents Holmes and Julia Neal Gilbert, her sister Marjorie Hughey, her brothers Malcolm Holmes (Buck) Gilbert and James Lansing Gilbert. She is survived by her children Paula Maier and her husband Carl Maier, Susan Goodman and her partner Richard Pullicin, Thomas Fisher, Nancy Capps and her husband James Capps, Diane Westcott and her husband Mark Westcott, and Roger Fisher and his wife Trina Fisher. 14 grandchildren: Karen, Lisa and Matthew Maier; Jason and Brittney Buchanan; Anthony "Fish" and Melissa Fisher; Bonnie and James Capps; Carly Trowell and Anthony Westcott; Jamie, Allyson and Tyler Fisher and 9 great grandchildren.

Grace was an accomplished hair stylist until she discovered her passion of buying and selling antiques and collectables at local flea markets. She never retired from her real love of selling treasures found at local yard sales and thrift stores. She loved sewing quilts, repairing and designing jewelry and drawing portraits, all of which she shared with her family and friends. She also served as a career military wife where she was able to travel abroad and acquire worldly experiences. She will always be remembered for her love of life, her kindness and generosity, her captivating stories, and a very entertaining soul.
