July 25, 1963 - December 26, 2018
Dayla’s Story Her journey began on July 25, 1963. She grew up in Nederland, Texas and graduated from Nederland High School in 1981. Shortly after, she met David who instantly became the love of her life. They married and quickly began their family. Dayla was an exceptional wife but an even more amazing mother to Krystle, Kacie and Kaleb. Her family and heart were complete when she became Mia - her chosen name by her grandson, Kohlton. Her happy place was anywhere and anytime they were all together. Dayla LOVED. She loved her family: blood, married and those chosen. She loved her parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins unconditionally. She adored her sister and brother, Kerry and Kenneth Fisher. The best gifts she ever received were her nieces and nephews; they brought unspeakable joy to her life and she cherished every moment spent with them. Dayla loved “all of God’s children”. She loved being an early childhood teacher. She loved teaching swimming lessons. She loved fresh coffee and diet cokes. She loved Charlie Brown. She loved the zoo. She loved to love! Dayla BELIEVED. She believed in the color pink. She believed in pedicures. She believed in miracles. She believed in the strength provided by family and friendship. She believed in the beach. She believed in back floats and blowing bubbles. She believed in hope, faith, joy, dancing, birthdays and chocolate. She believed in the good. She believed in hugs! She believed in people and their capabilities. She believed in the power of prayer. She believed in God. Dayla loved. Dayla believed. Dayla lived her life with unreasonable passion. Dayla met Jesus on December 26, 2018. Her gift of life was to love; her purpose of life was fulfilled by giving it. Her legacy is the beautiful shining light she shed. Continue to let her shine by being the light! Please join us on Saturday, January 12th from 1pm-4pm for a Celebration of Life in her honor.
