Catherine Marie (Kizer) Fannon, 55, of Jaffrey, NH passed away peacefully at home on February 6, 2022, surrounded by her family after a brief battle with cancer.
She was born on July 9, 1966, in Derry NH, to parents James and Charlotte (Wood) Kizer. She was raised in Derry and attended high school at Pinkerton Academy. She met her husband William while he was working for her father, and they were married on November 19, 1988. Together they had three children, Jessica, William, and Justin.
Catherine was a very proud mom. She stayed at home to raise her children, and, later in life, her grandchildren. She taught them many important life lessons, the most important of which was the value of family. Catherine enjoyed cooking, often throwing in whatever she had on hand to make a delicious dinner for her family. Some of her best creations were by accidentally adding in the wrong ingredient because she refused to cook with recipes. When not cooking with her family, Catherine could be found outside with her husband, planting and tending to their vegetable garden, or mowing the grass on her beloved lawn tractor. Catherine loved her family to the moon and back.
Catherine is predeceased by her father, James Kizer Jr. and her brother, James Kizer III.
She leaves behind her beloved husband of 33 years, William Michael Fannon, her daughter, Jessica Fortier and her husband Joseph and their two children Charlotte and Joseph Jr; her son, William Fannon and his wife Andra, and their daughter Alivia; her son, Justin Fannon and his wife Meghan, and their children Maddison and Justin Jr; her mother, Charlotte Kizer, her 3 brothers, William Kizer and his wife Kathleen of Wolfeboro, NH, John Kizer of Derry, NH, Edward Kizer and his wife Molly of Wells, ME, her 5 sisters Christine Divenuti and her husband Lawrence of Manchester, NH, Judith Kizer of Amherst, NH, Nancy Jefferson and her husband Michael of Bradford, NH, , Jeanette Catton and her husband Craig of Derry, NH, her sister-in-law who was truly a sister to her, Sandy Tombari of Derry, NH, and many nieces and nephews.
