Eliza Fletcher had a career as a kindergarten teacher
Fletcher worked as a kindergarten teacher at St. Mary’s Episcopal School in Memphis. After her passing, the school shared a few words in her honor, tweeting on September 6, “This morning our faculty and staff began the day in the chapel. We lit candles to remember Liza, who was a shining light in our community. Liza embodied the song we sing every week in the chapel at Early Childhood, ‘This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine.'”
Fletcher was also a dedicated racer 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 recorded time was fast enough for Liza to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
