September 7, 1958 - November 12, 2021
Cynthia Ann Yamamoto Fletcher was born in Turlock, California, on September 7, 1958, to Peter and Irene Yamamoto. As a child, Cyndi lived in Cortez, California. She attended Ballico Elementary School, Livingston High School, and Merced Junior College. In 1978, Cyndi transferred to San Diego State University where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies, and a Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential. Having returned to Cortez in 1981, she enrolled at Stanislaus State University, pursuing a Special Education Credential. That is where she met her future husband and the love of her life, Rick Fletcher. Cyndi worked as a teacher for the Stanislaus Union School District for 38 years in many different assignments. Her greatest teaching passion, however, was teaching remedial reading to under privileged students. Cyndi had an enormous array of interests including playing tennis, golf, volleyball, and softball. Cyndi loved hiking and boating at Pinecrest Lake, near her family cabin. She was an avid reader, and a wonderful pianist. Cyndi loved vacationing on the North coast of California, attending Dodger games, and relaxing and socializing with friends at her Long Barn cabin. But what was most important to her was her friends and family. She loved to entertain at home, and did so effortlessly. So loyal, and ready to help, she could always be counted on. Words cannot describe how much she will be missed. She is survived by her husband of 38 years, Rick Fletcher, daughters Lauren Fletcher Hou (Eric) and Kristy Fletcher, mother Irene Yamamoto, sister Julie Chan (Mark), and brothers Michael Yamamoto (Gail) and Gregg Yamamoto (Kathy). She was preceded in death by her father Peter Yamamoto. A Celebration of Life will be conducted at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, November 29, 2021, at Turlock Funeral Home, 425 N. Soderquist Rd., Turlock. A reception will follow at the Japanese American Citizens League Hall in Cortez, California. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the American Cancer Society at donate3.cancer.org.
