Marjorie Louise Fletcher


— Marjorie Louise Fletcher, 85, retired secretary, passed away Monday, March 3, 2014. She moved to Muskogee five years ago from Marion, Iowa. She married her long time friend and companion. Marjorie is survived by her husband, Jack A. Fletcher; other family members, Cheryl and Randy Moses, Renee and Jesse Clark, Joni and Randy Moses II; her great grandchildren, Avery, Rylin, Maegan, Brayden, and Trevor; her special friends, Anna and Janet, Peggy and Harold Willard, Randy and Lisa Mullen.

She was preceded in death by her parents, James and Helen First.

Marjorie enjoyed visiting with all her friends at Anna’s Restaurant, Creek Nation Casino, and the Nutrition Center.

Marjorie was a Christian woman who loved cats and birds. Her favorite cat was Cuddles. One thing she wanted her friends and family to understand is why she fed and cared for so many cats, kittens, and birds. When she was a child, she knew what it was like to be hungry and thirsty and she didn't want them to go without. Marjorie always managed to help them survive. They brought her much joy. Neighbors would bring lost kittens to her because they knew she would love and take care of them.

Marjorie wanted you to remember her as your friend, her funny spirit, and a unique person who cared.
