On July 13, 1974 Debra married her soulmate, Aubrey Fletcher, and together they raised 3 children; Charles, Jessica and Zoe. Debra’s faith was very important to her, she was a long-standing member of the Victory Church and volunteered for over 31 years in the Victory Church Children’s Ministry. Debra had a passion for all things artistic. She enjoyed painting, crocheting, cross stitching and even took on acting roles in local theatre. When Debra wasn’t enjoying her creative side, she could be found canning her famous pickles as well as other fruits and vegetables from her garden. She also had a special interest in lighthouses and Northern lights. Debra was a wife, mother, nana, sister, aunt and friend and will be greatly missed by many. Friends and family are invited to Celebrate the Life of Debra Fletcher at 1:00 pm on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at the Victory Church Lethbridge at 8-211069 Township Rd 90a, Lethbridge AB.
