Obituary of Nancy Joan Fisk Maze

Nancy Joan Fisk Maze passed away February 20, 2024, in Rainier, Washington, with her loved ones surrounding her with love in the Turbeville residence. She succumbed to cholangiocarcinoma, a rare bile duct cancer that is aggressive. She was 71 years young.


Nancy was born to Francis Wayland Fisk and Barbara Bernice Stapleton Fisk in Utica, New York. At the age of three-and-a-half, she and her family moved to Oxnard, California. She also lived in Marysville, California; Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands; Yuba City, California; Chico, California; Oroville, California; and El Mirage, Arizona.  She graduated from Marysville High School with the Class of 1970 and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Chico State University.


She had many interests and passions. Her favorite one was being a mother and grandmother. Nancy absolutely loved bragging about her three daughters and seven grandchildren to anyone who would listen. Any time she saw them, she beamed with joy and happiness. Nancy was always spoiling them with candy or gifts. She also had many friends and was well loved at her job at Kohls, which brought her so many friends.  Nancy was kind, loving, caring, funny and nurturing.


Nancy’s passion was painting. Any type of art Nancy did, people just loved. She added buttons and such to all her paintings and even painted on windows and walls for people. She spent many of her years creating and making art. She loved teaching people how to paint. Genealogy was another big part of her life. Any family she was around, she would always tell us some sort of genealogy about our family line. She would love for whomever is reading this to get out there and paint. She loved going antiquing with her friends and family.


Nancy will be deeply missed and dearly remembered by those she leaves behind.  She is survived by her daughters, Carissa Ann Baker, Julie Marie Turbeville, and Sarah Beth Barrera; grandchildren, Mikayla Harrington, Hayden Barrera, Emily Turbeville, Amber Barrera, Ian Barrera, Jimmy Turbeville Jr., Garrett Barrera; brother, James Eric Fisk; and sister, Patricia Ann Fisk.
