Michael Rowlands confirmed her death news through a Facebook post and wrote in his statement:
“ Linda Fletcher, What words could characterize your kindness, smile, and the way your energy filled a room? Linda persuaded me to apply to Pasadena after I had a terrible first year of education at Fort Bend and advocated on my behalf. A genuine LEADERSHIP. She would listen to me, hear me, and argue for me (as she did for the rest of us in the Fine Arts). She was my district director, my mentor, a confidante, and a great soul on this planet.
She even came to see me in the ICU in January when my life looked to be falling apart. I regret not taking a photograph of us that day. She made me feel important, appreciated, and cared for. Pasadena has lost a magnificent woman, and no one can take her place. I will definitely be playing Bassoon in the orchestra for her funeral, and organ if they need it.. Linda, may God bless you. Rest in peace, my friend.”
Linda left behind her loved ones in grief and loss; social media have been poured with sympathies and prayer on the news of her sudden demise. Thoughts and Condolences to her family, her husband and close companions. Her funeral services have not been announced publicly.
As per reports, it would be an understatement to say that this woman, the renowned Director of Fine Arts of Pasadena ISD, was a powerhouse in music instruction. She set high standards for Pasadena’s music education and was demanding in terms of expectations, standards, and quality.
Linda made it happen whatever the Fine Arts teachers needed to do to help us get better. She ensured that Fine Arts was on the district’s improvement plan for everything!
In a Facebook post, one of her mates, Sharnelle Jones wrote, “Linda first pushed me to act as more of a mentor for other directors in May of this year, and I resisted! The word “NO” has no significance to Linda if you know her. LOL.”
Linda was a person with a strong enthusiasm and abilities; her loved ones cherished her. Linda will never forget in the heart of her husband of 45 years, daughter, grandchildren and all who dearly loved her. Prayers for her; Rest in Peace, Linda Fletcher.
