Gloria B. Fletcher

Gloria Burnet Fletcher, 88, passed away on Dec. 27, 2020, at the CVPH Medical Center in Plattsburgh.

Born on June 10, 1932, in Tupper Lake, she was the youngest daughter of the late Liva (Payment) and Fred Burnet.

Gloria married Douglas Fletcher on Sept. 11, 1950. They enjoyed 65 years together before his passing in 2015. Together they enjoyed horseback riding, traveling on vacations and watching their grandchildren play at various sporting events and attending their concerts. Gloria was an active 4-H Leader, teaching girls in Lake Clear and Tupper Lake skills of sewing and knitting. She enjoyed cross-country skiing with family and friends.

Later they moved to Potsdam, where family remained very important to her as she hosted countless family holidays and get-togethers. She was often the last one to leave the table, as she was too busy talking about her grandchildren’s latest accomplishments including how she saw her great-grandchildren singing songs on the iPad.

Survivors include her three children and their spouses, Susan Terrenzio (Tony), Jerry Fletcher (Meg), and Laurie West (Gary); nine grandchildren and their spouses, (Joel Madden, Amy’s widow), Jim Terrenzio (Nixara), Terra Rogers (Greg), Kyle Fletcher (finance Rachael), Beth Fletcher, Jason West (Jessica), Jeff Terrenzio (Gina), Michelle Meyer (John), Sara Steele (finance’ Josh) and Marcie Duschen (Steve); 15 great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

Her husband, siblings, and granddaughter Amy (Terrenzio) Madden preceded her in death.

She will be forever remembered for her infectious laugh, long phone conversations and home-cooked meals (when during hunting season, the men ate first).

The family would like to thank Roseann Brogan and the staff at Saranac Village at Will Rogers for their acts of kindness to Gloria.

Contributions in Gloria’s memory could be donated to the Saranac Lake Voluntary Health Association, 75 Main St., Suite 2, Saranac Lake, NY 12983.
