Kitty began singing at the age of five in her Aunt Betty Trettel Heuer’s church choir in Middletown, Ohio. She also was a soloist and sang in the choir at First Lutheran Church in Washington, PA where she has lived her entire life. Kitty received a Bachelor of Music Degree from West Virginia University and did graduate work at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Maryland. In 2012 she retired from the Music Department at McGuffey School District where she directed their choral program. She continues to be a vocal soloist and participates in area music programs.
In 2006 Kitty became the director of Choirs at Faith Church. “We have an Adult Choir and Youth choir here at Faith that is wonderful to work with. There are a lot of dedicated Christians in our choirs”, Fischer says. “Typically we sing from September to the end of May and it is not a requirement to read music. The only requirement is the love of singing.”
Kitty is married the Rev. Dr. Roger Raymond Fischer and has three married children: Roger 2nd (Marcia), Steven (Heather), and Katy Herold (John), and five grandchildren: Abby, Jack, Max, Eli and Zeke.
