She was a charter member of Faith Free Will Baptist Church, where she sang in the choir and served as the Sunday school director for 44 years in the children's primary department. Mrs. Fleming was an avid gardener, but her greatest love was God, family, children and friends.

Mrs. Fleming is survived by her loving husband of almost 54 years, Robert Lindsay Fleming; her devoted daughters, Wanda Fleming Parker and husband, Larry, of Hendersonville, Tenn., and Leah Fleming Perry and husband, Macon, of Bahama; and her precious grandchildren, Brianne Parker, Nathaniel Parker and Laci Perry. She is also survived by her brother, Paul Bartlett of Pikeville; her sisters, Shirley Bedford of Goldsboro, Esther Rose Gardner of Pikeville and Evelyn Hines of LaGrange; her brother-in-law, Archie Rose of Wilson and her sister-in-law, Pat Bartlett of Milwaukee, Wis.
