Eliza Fletcher Had a Career as a Kindergarten Teacher
Fletcher worked as a junior kindergarten teacher at St. Mary’s Episcopal School in Memphis. After her passing, the school shared a few words in her honor, tweeting on Sept. 6, “This morning our faculty and staff started the day in chapel. We lit candles to remember Liza who was a bright light in our community. Liza embodied the song that we sing every week in Early Childhood chapel, ‘This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine.'”
Fletcher Was Also a Dedicated Runner for Years
In 2019, Fletcher finished the St. Jude marathon in 22nd place, with a time of 3:26:09, according to Commercial Appeal. The time on record was fast enough for Liza to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
