Independent spirit pursued all interests
By Nicole VISSCHEDYK, Special To Sun Media, Sun., March 2, 2008
Born in London in 1919, Frances FLETCHER personified the free spirit of feminism long before that word had entered most vocabularies.
During the Second World War, she moved alone to Ottawa to work as a censor for the federal government.
At 21, newly married, she screened outgoing letters from German prisoners of war in Canada to ensure state secrets weren't leaked to the enemy.
FLETCHER never stopped learning and instilled her love of education in all she met.
When her husband died 25 years ago, her independent nature served her well. She travelled extensively alone, often combining formal study.
"She studied Jane Austen in Britain and she studied on the reserves in South Africa," said her daughter, Frances-Jane FLETCHER of London.
"If she wanted to do something, she went and did it."
FLETCHER died February 15 at 89.
She graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1940 with an honours degree in French and German.
"She came back for every reunion," said her daughter.
In 1953, FLETCHER turned to her daughter and said, "I'm tired of living someone else's life. I want to live my own."
That year, since public schools didn't yet offer early childhood education, she started a kindergarten class out of her basement.
Soon, she and her young family moved to Burlington for her husband's job. She led the languages department at Aldershot high school for more than two decades.
"She was the kind of person who encouraged others to follow their talents," said her granddaughter, Katherine FLETCHER of London.
Frances FLETCHER's sister, Elsinore DIGGORY of Kitchener, said Frances was a happy and popular child.
Her last home was in Grand Bend where she kept a busy schedule. Her optimistic and outgoing personality helped her to earn a certificate of merit for volunteer work with the chamber of commerce.
Her job as a tourism liaison officer brought her in contact with people worldwide. She relished meeting new Friends and learning about their lives, said her daughter.
FLETCHER is survived by her sister, three children and many grandchildren.
