Margie was a kind, compassionate lady who made everyone around her feel better. There was never a dull moment when around her!! She was blessed to have a wonderful family to support her. R.I.P. Margie-a real lady.

Deanna and family…. Margie was was a beautiful person inside and out. We always marveled at how she played a good game of bridge when most of us couldn’t remember what the trump was! God Bless you all.

Margie was a lovely lady and a hard working flower show judge. I always enjoyed judging with Margie. She will remain in my fond memories of flower shows. Many thanks for her family’s good care!

Betty Jon, Deanna and family…I was saddened to learn of Margie’s passing. Please accept my heartfelt sympathies for your loss. I was privileged to get to know this family during my teen years (and beyond) and you have a special place in my heart. Margie was a beautiful lady, inside and out, who was always kind and gracious to me during my summer visits. Wishing the family God’s peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead, and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts.

My parent’s bought the home that the Fletcher’s built in Midland, NC, and for some time (approximately the mid 1960s) Deanna Fletcher, her daughter, lived next door with her young children, Bo, Josh, and then husband, Olin.

I adored the family, and especially Deanna, weeping when she told me she would be moving to Vero Beach. I hope one day to tell her how much she was admired! Cindy (Helms) Adams, Greensboro NC

So sad to hear of Margie’s passing just now she was a caring Christian woman who lived out her faith- I was friends with her grandson decades ago and her daughters Deanna and Joy. Revelation 5:13

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
