Obituary for Peggy Andrews O'Bryan Fletcher
Peggy Sue Andrews O'Bryan Fletcher, 78, of Quincy, passed away on October 6, 2015, in Tallahassee, Florida. She fought an impressive long and hard battle this past year, but finally succumbed to cancer with complications from COPD with her son by her side. She is at peace now. She was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, on February 11, 1937. She was preceded in death by her father, Arnold Duke Andrews, Shreveport, LA., and her mother and step-father, Pauline and S. M. "Wimpy" Henton, Tallahassee, FL. Peggy graduated from Florida High School and lived and worked in the Tallahassee area, most notably with Ragans and Roberts Tire Company, for many years before settling in Quincy. She found her true calling there working with antiques and second hand furniture and memorabilia. She will be remembered for her artistic abilities, and her meticulous work repairing and refinishing antiques in and around the Quincy area. She is survived by her husband of 35 years, Jimmy Fletcher, who resides at Heritage Health Care in Tallahassee; her son, John A. O'Bryan (Jennifer Marion), and four grandchildren, Devon, Kyle, Gavin and Tyler O'Bryan, all of Davie, Florida; her sister, Sandra H. Myers of Tallahassee; two nieces Hollie M. Elhilow of West Palm Beach, Florida, and Lisa M. Canup of Tallahassee; one nephew, Bartow M. Myers, of Crestview, Florida, and a host of cousins in Louisiana. The family would like to thank special friends of the deceased, Tina Brandon and Fannie and Bob Smith of Quincy, for always being there for her. Also the compassionate and caring doctors, nurses and caregivers at Heritage Health Care and Covenant Hospice. We are extremely grateful for their support during this time. Pursuant to her wishes there will be a private family spreading of ashes. No services are planned. Charles McClellan Funeral Home, Quincy, is assisting the family. For friends who wish, the family suggests donations in her memory to Covenant Hospice, 1921 Capital Circle NE, Tallahassee, Florida 32308. When I come to the end of my journey, and I travel my last weary mile, just forget if you can that I ever frowned, and remember only the smile. Forget unkind words I have spoken; remember some good I have done. Forget that I ever had heartache, and remember I've had loads of fun. Forget that I have stumbled and blundered, and sometimes fell by the way. Remember I have fought some hard battles, and won, ere the close of the day. Then forget to grieve for my going, I would not have you sad for a day.
