Mary Jean “Jeannie” Fletcher
She was born Feb. 16, 1940, to Selvestri and Fortunata Bacolad in Paia, Maui, Hawaii. She grew up in Hawaii and, on Jan. 28, 1961, she married the love of her life, Robert L. “Bob” Fletcher in Honolulu, Hawaii. On April 1, 1976, they moved to Idaho to be near Robert’s family. Jeannie loved Idaho; she enjoyed ceramics, camping with the Good Sam’s Club, snowmobiling, Sunday Bingo at the Moose Lodge and was a member of the Ladies Red Hat Society. She was also a major football fan who never missed a Boise State game, and she could cheer with the best of them. Jeannie made many lasting friendships, including her calico cat, Runner. Before her retirement, Jeannie worked picking beans at the Kimberly Green Seeds. Known to many by her nickname, “Pineapple,” her beautiful smile and laughter will be missed by many. Jeannie was an incredible wife, aunt, sister and sister-in-law.
Her parents preceded her in death. Surviving Jeannie is her loving husband of 52 years, Robert L. Fletcher; her brothers, Mark and Joseph of Hawaii; and her sister, Patricia; as well as many nieces and nephews.
