Carol Lee Fletcher

Obituary of Carol Lee Ann Fletcher

My beautiful Momma, Carol Lee Fletcher, was born in Grants Pass, Oregon, on December 9, 1937, to the late Thomas and Leona Fithian. She passed away on February 9, 2023, at the age of 85, after a fall which fractured her spine.

Her family moved from Grants Pass, Oregon to Florence, Oregon, when she was a little girl. She graduated from Siuslaw High School in 1956. Immediately following graduation, she moved to Los Angeles, California, to experience life in the big city. She lived there for a year and worked as a telephone operator and a model.

She relocated to Eugene, Oregon, in 1957 where she met Layton Fletcher. They were married in 1959 and had two children together. They bought a home in Springfield, Oregon, where she lived until 2018. Carol Lee and Layton went their separate ways later in life, but were both supportive and loving parents.

Once her children were a little older, she worked as a teacher assistant, and was an Avon lady who won many awards. She enjoyed singing in several church choirs throughout her life. After retiring, she volunteered a lot of her time to many organizations including Meals on Wheels, and the Willamalane Senior Center.

She will be remembered for her undying faith, her creativity, her ability to remain young at heart, her fun sense of humor, and her willingness to help people from all walks of life.

She leaves to cherish her sweet memories, a daughter, Mona Coursey-Cook, (Anthony Smith); two granddaughters, Chandra (Joseph) Sarkez, and Elizabeth Fletcher; three great grandchildren; her brother, Richard (Linda) Fithian; numerous nieces and nephews, and many friends. She is preceded in death by her son, Mark Fletcher; and her sister, Georgia McMullen.

She will be laid to rest in Springfield Memorial Gardens with a celebration of life planned for a later date.  Arrangements entrusted to Springfield Memorial Funeral Home. Please access the obituary and you are invited to sign the guestbook at
