Fletcher, Tressie Eva Williams

Monday, November 6, 2017
Tressie Eva Williams Fletcher, 87, of Fort Oglethorpe, died on Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017 at her residence.  Tressie was born Sept. 29, 1930 in Chattanooga to the late Paul and Gladys Williams.  A charter member of First Baptist Church of Fort Oglethorpe, Tressie was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was preceded in death by her parents and husband, Mark Fletcher; son, Mark Kenneth Fletcher III; brother, Sterling Williams; and sister, Dorothy Hannah.

Survivors are her daughter Patrice (Hank) Humphrey; son, Jeff (Michelle) Fletcher; grandchildren, Fletcher, Corley, Brynna, and Sarah Beth Humphrey; sister, Joyce (Sonny) Hegwood; sisters-in law, Louise and Robbie Fletcher; brothers-in-law, Ronald and Harold Pierce; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

During her adult life, Tressie worked for several organizations including Olan Mills, Lakeview-Ft. Oglethorpe High School and TVA, but she always felt her calling was that of a loving wife to her childhood sweetheart and devoted mother/grandmother to her beloved children and grandchildren. She was a selfless servant, gifted teacher and avid reader.

The family would like to especially thank Gail Lewis of North Georgia Home Health and Missy Goodlett and Sharon Hughes of Tapestry Hospice for their kindness and excellent care.
