Janet Lee (Breault) Fisher of Richardson, Texas passed away on December 30, 2022
Jan was born on January 8, 1955 in West Palm Beach, Florida, the daughter of Raymond and Celia (Box) Breault. She was preceded in her death by her parents and brother Jimmy Enriquez. She is survived by husband Kevin, brothers Ronald (Sue her) Enriquez, Raymond Breault Jr. and sister Patricia (Chuck) May, and several grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Jan grew up in an Air Force family and spent her early years in a variety of locations including the Philippines, Montana, Massachusetts and Arizona before settling in Topeka, KS. She graduated from Topeka High in 1973 and remained in Topeka for several years after graduation before moving to Houston, Texas to begin the next chapter in her life. She moved to Dallas, Texas in 1983 and married her husband Kevin in 1986.
Jan held various administrative positions for several years, dealing with contracts, financial reporting and other administrative functions. His most rewarding job was his last job before retiring in 2010, when he worked as a teacher’s assistant at a local elementary school assisting children with special needs in their classrooms.
Jan had many interests and hobbies. She loved growing plants, both indoors and out, and was a long-time member of a local chapter of the African Violet Society. She also enjoyed needlework where she could create things, starting with crochet and expanding to cross stitch and needlepoint. Her most recent venture has been designing and making quilts for the last few years. These were all outlets for Jan to exercise her artistic talents. Jan has made many friends over the years, participating in formal and informal groups with similar interests. She also made many remote friends through online blogs in which she actively participated.
Jan’s other passion was her regular visits to two local thrift stores where she hunted for treasures and any vintage fabrics they might have for her quilts. She enjoyed researching and learning all she could about the antiques she would find.
A celebration of life will be held in honor of Jan. Anyone wishing to make a contribution in Janet’s honor is encouraged to do so with the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge in Houston, Texas; Faith Presbyterian Hospice in Dallas, Texas; or the charity of their choice.
