Fairann Mardele Fisk
May 29, 1970
July 12, 2015

Fairann Mardele Fisk passed away following a lengthy illness. She is preceded in death by her sisters Fleurisa and Felicity, her paternal grandfather Walter Merril, several aunts, uncles, and cousins. She leaves behind her life partner and best friend Julie Baker, her parents Frank and Anita, her brother Frank (Ashley) and nephews Noah and Graham, and her beloved paternal grandmother Adele Fisk Guisti. Fairann was part of a large extended family who cherished her zest for life and her adventurous spirit.

Fairann grew up in small town Nevada, beginning first in Wadsworth before moving to Battle Mountain and then to Lovelock. She graduated from Pershing County High School with the Class of '88. She was an athlete, playing baseball, basketball, soccer, swimming, softball, and rock climbing. She loved the Cleveland Browns, boxing, and tennis. Fairann loved music, especially '80s heavy metal. She played the trapset for her high school band and sang in the choir. Since childhood Fairann was an artist; later, she won tremendous accolades for her art displays for Tower Records. She had aspirations of joining the UNR Pep Band and of publishing her writings. She was always intrigued with tattoos and aspired to become a tattoo artist. Fairann could quote verbatim hundreds of movie passages and identify a song and its singer with the fewest of hints. She had the skills and talent to create beauty and wonder where once stood hatred and fear. Throughout her life she was staunchly loyal and a fierce competitor.

Fairann Fisk was a member of the Te-Moak Shoshone Indian Tribe and remained a strong supporter of equal rights for all people. Her services were held on Saturday, July 18, 2015. In lieu of flowers her family asks that friends and family donate to the Fairann Fisk Scholarship for the Creative Arts through the Wells Fargo bank.
