A Loving Tribute

Terri Lynn Fletcher

November 23, 1963 – April 29, 2024
Submitted by Mollie Bolsinger


Ms. Terri Lynn Fletcher made her debut on November 23, 1963, born to James D. and Maxine Fletcher in Washington DC. She left us after battling cancer fearlessly and peacefully on April 29, 2024. 

Terri spent her life with family and mostly resided on the Western slope. It is difficult and not realistic to believe we are even writing this because life without Terri cannot be imagined. She had a light sense of humor at all the family events and made everyone laugh hysterically for hours to the point of no turning back. Terri was a mother, daughter, sister, and friend. Her glowing beauty could be seen with brightness and uniqueness. She loved hairspray, makeup, and all the girly things; she was even a model for a portion of her life. Terri loved her cats, children, family, nieces, nephews, and most of all the small things. Her style was to stroll in casually, let loose, and have fun! Why can’t we all live that way, there would be no worries at all!

As Terri’s illness progressed, she continued to fight many physical and silent battles. She never gave up. She is survived by her mother Maxine Fletcher, sister Debbie, brothers JJ and Keith, sons Jeremiah Harris and Jordan Ortego, multiple nieces, nephews, and cousins. As Marilyn Monroe would say, “We are all of us stars”, and we deserve to twinkle. Terri, you deserve to twinkle and until we meet again your legacy will live through and shine on!

 A celebration of life will occur at New Covenant Baptist Church on May 18th, at 11:30 am service and lunch to follow.
