Leola McComic Fletcher, 90, entered into eternal rest on Oct. 24, 2013. Leola was born July 21, 1923 in Fisher and resided in Shreveport for 13 years until the time of her death. Her greatest accomplishments in life were the creation of a loving home for her family and providing care to those who could no longer care for themselves. She retired as a caregiver in 1985. She attended Moss Ridge Assembly of God and Bethel Assembly of God in Many during her residency in Sabine Parish. Her strength and hope were steadfast in Christ, her Lord and Savior. In her final days, her courage, peace and strength were an inspiration to all those around her. There were many times, in her final days on earth, that a twinkle would enter her eye and a smile would light her face. She was at perfect peace knowing that she would soon be without the pain and discomfort that seemed to plague many of her days in the last years of her life. She was insistent that no one detain her from a reunion with her family and loved ones in Heaven, especially her beloved husband of 54 years. Visitation was held at Warren Meadows Funeral Home in Many on Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013 at 11 a.m. with graveside services at Oak Hill Baptist Church Cemetery in Many. The Rev. Brooks Coburn presided as the officiant of the services which celebrated her life. Leola is survived by two sons, Noble Ray Fletcher and wife, Avis, of Natchitoches, and Jimmy Wayne Fletcher of Monroe; daughter, Barbara Parker and husband, Monte, of Bossier City; two sisters, Betty Goss of Florien and Jackie Flynt of Terrell, Texas; 12 grandchildren, including, Diane Fletcher, who she cared for in her home; 12 great-grandchildren and her many friends and loved ones. She was preceded in death by her parents, Walter Green McComic and Lillie Randolph McComic; her husband, Noble Fletcher; daughter, Clydia Faye Funderburk; granddaughter, Sarina Fletcher; brother, Buddy McComic and wife, Neva McComic; sister, Viola Cox and brother-inlaw, Larry Cox; and two brothers-in-laws, Jack Goss and Ed Flynt. Special acknowledgement and appreciation to her family for their love and support through the years, Dr. Robert Hernandez and nurse practitioner, Laura Perkins of Shreveport, Gateway Assembly of God visitation staff of Shreveport, the staff and residents of Heritage Manor Stratmore in Shreveport and the staff of Willis Knighton-Pierremont 6th Tower and 7th Floor in Shreveport. Mama has gone to a place where the roses never fade, where there is no more pain, sorrow or heartache; forever at rest, walking and talking with her best friend Jesus. She wants to meet us all there; she is waiting and looking for us. Thank you Mama for all that you did for us, not only teaching us about Jesus, but living the life before each of us every day.
