Margot Rose Fletcher – Las Vegas, Nev.

Margot Rose Fletcher, 65, formerly of Hinesburg, left this Earth on May 28, 2015, to walk in Heavenly light after a long illness. Margot was born on March 3, 1950, in Washington, D.C., the daughter of Gordon and Marion (Wade) Fletcher. Margot grew up in Hinesburg on her parent’s dairy farm with her six siblings. After graduating from CVU, she attended the University of Vermont where she received a degree in Nursing. Margot was employed several years as a nurse before moving to California and later Nevada. She was a lifelong student of complementary medicine, preferring natural methods as much as possible. Margot was a lover of all animals, especially as she and her partner, John, had what her family called “a private humane society” to numerous cats found homeless and in need of love. She is survived by her longtime partner, John Yarbrough of Las Vegas; her mother, Marion, of Jeffersonville, Vt.; sisters, Dale (Cota) Fields of Jeffersonville, Vt., and Melissa Fletcher of Phoenix, Ariz.; brothers, Ronald Fletcher of Fairfield, Vt., Mark Fletcher (and wife, Sarah Phillips) of Fairfax, Vt., John Fletcher of Missoula, Mont., and Eric Fletcher of Brandon, Fla.; as well as numerous nieces and nephews around the country. She was predeceased by a sister-in-law, Nancy; nephew, Alex; as well as her father, Gordon, who will welcome her with open arms. Margot loved, and was loved, deeply. Though she was far from her family, she always kept her family close in her heart and asked about each with compassion. She will always be in our hearts as she takes her final journey of transition to a place of peace and comfort. There will be no services at this time; a memorial gathering will be held by family at a later date where her ashes will be disbursed. Special thanks are given to the staff at Infinity Hospice in Las Vegas, Nev.
