On July 8th 2023, on what would have been her 72nd birthday, a celebration of her life and a sharing of memories of Madeline Marie Fisher Hoyle took place at 1:30 PM at Lakeview Cemetery in Broomfield, Colorado. Sixteen of her immediate family members were present as her physical remains were interred close to other members of the Hoyle family.
Marie passed into new life on Wednesday, May 17th, 2023 at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Lafayette, Colorado with immediate family, close friends, and Pastor Blackwood by her side. She was admitted to the ICU in late April with pain and increased difficulty breathing. Her condition worsened during the first week of May leading to increased life support. Acute on chronic respiratory failure, flare of pulmonary fibrosis, and pneumonia led to her passing.
On Saturday, May 20th, 2023, honoring Marie's request, a family viewing followed by a formal memorial service was held at the United Church of Broomfield, CO. The service was attended by family and friends and conducted by the Reverend Michael Blackwood. A reception was hosted by the spiritual care committee following the services.
Marie was born on July 8th, 1951 in Ironton, Ohio just across the Kentucky line from her childhood home of Flatwoods, Kentucky. She was the oldest of four surviving children of Ruby (Nolan) Fisher and William "Bill" Fisher. They grew up surrounded by a large and loving extended family on both the Fisher and Nolan sides that, for the most part, lived close by in Kentucky, Ohio, and West Virginia.
Marie graduated from Russell County High School in 1969. Her long time passion was to write and sing country music which she pursued through her mid-twenties singing in bands and solo engagements in KY, Ohio, and OK.
Marie and Robert "Bob" Hoyle met in 1976 while both were employed at American National Bank of Denver. They lived in Colorado (Westminster, Thornton, Louisville, and Broomfield) during their 46 years of marriage raising two sons, Jason and Joshua. No one was more committed to loving, supporting, and advocating for her sons and grandchildren.
Marie struggled with respiratory and spinal pain issues for most of the past twenty years that limited her ability to be as active as she would have liked. She focused on drawing and painting mountain scenery and left us many examples of her ever improving talent. She maintained her membership in the United Church of Christ in Broomfield, where she and Bob were married, but her health challenges kept her from being as active as she was before she was placed on oxygen in the late 1990s.
Marie was preceded in death by her parents, William and Ruby Fisher of Flatwoods, KY; two younger brothers: Willard "Butch" and John Fisher of Flatwoods, KY; her in-laws: Ira Kenneth "Ken" and Virginia Hoyle of Broomfield, CO; and an older brother-in-law, Gary L. Hoyle of Walsh, CO.
Marie is survived by her husband: Robert K. "Bob" Hoyle of Broomfield; two sons: Jason W. Hoyle of Fort Collins and Joshua N. Hoyle of Colorado Springs; three surviving grandchildren: Logan Hoyle, Elizabeth Hoyle, KateLynn Hoyle, and their mother, Shandra Hoyle, all of Colorado Springs, CO; a younger brother, Gary Wayne Fisher, of Flatwoods, KY; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law: Elizabeth Fisher of Flatwoods, KY; Richard Hoyle and Lisa Iverson Hoyle of Bellingham, WA; Rebecca R. (Hoyle) Razo and Tom Razo of Boulder, CO; several aunts, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews, and grand nieces and nephews on both sides of the family.
The family extends our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for the many condolences as well as tributes to Marie by family members, friends, and neighbors, the DeMolay and Masonic Family, members of Rotary, the staff at In Memoriam, and Pastor Michael Blackwood along with the members and staff of the United Church of Broomfield. So many reached out, comforted us, sent cards, flowers, and anonymous banana bread and brownies.
Our sincerest thanks as well to the staff at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Lafayette, especially the ICU staff, which tended to Marie's needs and gave her all the support, attention, and expertise we could have asked for.
She is missed and grieved by all that knew and loved her.
