Mattie Lean Jackson Fletcher was born December 21, 1937, to the late Rev Alonzo Jackson and Mrs Ilean Hunter Jackson. She departed this life and entered eternal reward on July 11, 2023, surrounded by loved ones. Born in Abbeville South Carolina she later relocated with her family to Huntersville and Davidson North Carolina. She attended Torrence – Lytle School and was actively involved in her church. Her early commitment to Christ was evident in her strong faith and leadership in the music ministry as the choir director at her Father’s church and lead singer. One of her favorite songs was “We are Soldiers in the Army of the Lord.” Mattie enjoyed bingo, reading, crossword puzzles and most importantly attending Bible study. Mattie attended church with her family before joining Reeves Temple AME Zion Church and later connecting with Union Bethel AME Zion Church.
In addition to valuing a relationship with Jesus, Mattie was committed to her family. Her marital union to Lewis Fletcher (who proceeded her in death) produced four children: Frankie Jackson (who preceded her in death), Diane Fletcher and Bobby Fletcher both of Davidson NC and Sandra McDaniel (Wayne) of Charlotte NC. Mattie was known for being a hard-worker and willingly sharing with others. She would frequently open her heart and home to Davidson College’s staff and students. She was recognized for being an intricate part of Davidson’s College history in Shared Stories Vol. One.
Mattie worked at Davidson College Guest House for 36 years. After her retirement she worked part-time in the Charlotte Mecklenburg School System.
