Daphne Fletcher


aged 92, of Highgate Park, St. Michael, formerly of Lodge Hill, St. Michael, moved to her heavenly home on July 11, 2021.

Maggie Fletcher was born in Barbados, August 24th, 1929, the 4th of 7 children born to Lucien and Meta (nee Goodridge) Fletcher. Her siblings are Arthur, Robbie, Willie, Ben, Olive and Dudley Fletcher. She started work at DaCosta’s (now Massy) at the age of 17 and worked there for 43 years in various accounting roles, retiring from the position of Assistant Accountant at the age of 60. Not one to ever be idle, she took a course in elder care, and served in that role for several years.

Auntie Mags, as she was known by all our generation, whether related by blood or not, was a Christian missionary at heart. To be a witness for her Lord and Saviour was her most important calling. When we were children, every Friday afternoon she bundled about 6 or 8 of us and our friends into her Fiat van and took us to a Bible Class taught by Miss Laird, a Berean Missionary. She also visited many who were sick or in need. For a period of time, she was involved with a Bible Class for children in Martin’s Bay, and travelled to Dominica with a missionary from Ireland. She once told us that she had made a promise to God to share His message of Salvation with at least one person each day.

Her message to all who read this notice is that her God and Saviour …” desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 2:4-5 NKJV

We, her nieces and nephews, want to thank those in Barbados who have cared for our Auntie Mags so well, while we all have lived off-island. Close friends; leaders and members of the Ebenezer Gospel Hall and other related Gospel Halls; and most specially the staff of Age Assist Retreat, Highgate Park, where she has lived for the past several years. Your love for our Auntie Mags, and your respect for her, has blessed her – especially in these past few years.

Thank you.
The Fletcher and Emtage nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.

Our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Sis. Fletcher. I remember all those good days of socializing with her and Robbie at their home. She was a caring, beautiful and lovely person. Blessings.

Paul & I were very blessed to have been able to spend some time with Auntie Mags a few years ago while in Barbados. It was such an honour and pleasure to get to know her. She was such a wonderful lady. We send our sincerest condolences to all of the family. The ones we love are never gone, they live within our hearts. Sending prayers and hugs to all.
