OBITUARY ~ ROXIE KAYE (SMITH) FLETCHER
March 08, 1954 ~ March 18, 2016

Roxie Kaye Fletcher, daughter of Cecil Joseph & Vesta Maxine (Keller) Smith, was born at home near Diagonal, Iowa on March 8, 1954. Roxie graduated from Diagonal High School in 1972.

Roxie married Charles Phillip Fletcher on July 21, 1976. They made Diagonal their home where they raised their three children; Robert, Charlotte, and Danny.

Roxie loved being a mother and she was home for them as they were growing up. Roxie worked at the Cap Factory for a few years and later she worked at Jerry’s Texaco & Sinclair. Roxie worked at Midwest Opportunities in Creston and she was a cook at the Diagonal schools, the Diagonal café, Fireside Bar & Grill and most recently Back 40 Bar & Grill in Diagonal. Roxie was a member of the Diagonal First Responders. In addition to being a loving homemaker, Roxie was Charlie’s right-hand man with the farm work.

Roxie loved her family and she loved taking her children and grandchildren fishing and camping. Spending time with them was important. Her love for the kids carried outside her home and into the community when she became a Brownie leader; she decorated the Diagonal city park at Christmas time and hid Easter eggs at Fogle lake for the annual Easter egg hunt. Roxie loved to be outside visiting and was most happy when the front porch was full of people sitting and visiting.

Roxie fought a brave fight with cancer and she passed from this life on March 18, 2016.

She was preceded in death by her parents; siblings Cecil Edward Smith, Richard Wayne Smith, twin brothers Lee & Dee Smith; parents-in-law Everett & Alice Fletcher; in-laws Myron Schnackenberg, Bud Ayres, John Fletcher, David Fletcher, Edward Fletcher.

Those left to cherish her memory include her husband Charlie of Diagonal; children Robert Fletcher of Diagonal, Charlotte (Casey Barber) Fletcher of Creston, and Danny (Heather) Fletcher of Corning; grandchildren Brenton Barber of Creston, Hanna Hartman of Creston, Baylee Fletcher of Corning, Megan Reese of Corning, and Jezzi Wynn of Corning; siblings Betty Jean Schnackenberg of Diagonal, Irene Ayres of Mount Ayr, Phyllis (Dale) Cregeen of Rockford, IL, Jock (Robin) Smith of Utica, MO, Barb (Bob) Strange of Mount Ayr, Gary (Brenda) Smith of Diagonal, John Smith of Arizona; in-laws Dorothy Smith of Clearfield, Peggy (Ted) Olson of Mitchellville, Richard Fletcher of Corning, Karen (Dale) Magee of Creston, Bonnie Fletcher of Diagonal, Tom Fletcher of Diagonal, Larry Fletcher of Creston, Steve (significant other Jolene) Fletcher of Mount Ayr, Patti (Ronnie) Bird of Creston; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Honorary Pallbearers were Brenton Barber, Hanna Hartman, Baylee Fletcher, Megan Reese and Jezzi Wynn.

A memorial fund has been established in her name.
