Martha P. Fletcher

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Martha P. Fletcher, 92, passed away Monday, Dec. 10, 2012, at home after a period of declining health. She was born May 14, 1920, in Camden, Ill., to LuLu and Orren Gillenwater.

Martha married Harry Fletcher, and they remained together until his death on Nov. 4, 1980. While her husband was serving active duty in WWII, Martha volunteered to work his position with the Pennsylvania Railroad.

She will be remembered as a lovely, understanding wife, daughter, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother and friend to many.

She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, four brothers Gayle, Oras, Orren and King, four sisters Elleone Donnelly, Mary Welty, Delphine Learned and Wava Zednick. She has also lost two loving grandchildren Marcie Boysen and Jonathon McDonald.

Martha will be missed very much and will always be held close at heart by family and friends.

May she find peace and happiness with her Lord.

Survivors include one son Roger Fletcher, one daughter Sheila McDonald, grandchildren Roger K. Fletcher, Leslie Duniphan, Brooke Osborn, Marti Michelle Trout and Matthew McDonald, several great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

The family wishes to thank her caregivers at Southern Care Hospice and those at Cloverleaf Healthcare. They also wish to thank her doctor, Dr. Craig Johnson, for his care and concern. His dedication of service provided family with much needed support.

A graveside service will take place Friday at 2 p.m., at the Clearview Cemetery in Brazil. Memorial contributions may be made to the Senior Citizens of Clay County or the charity of your choice. Online condolences may be expressed at www.moorefuneralhomes.com.
