Emerita Pletcher
On February 12, 2021, Emerita Pletcher died peacefully at age 86, surrounded by her family. Emerita was born in Houston on March 26, 1934 as the youngest of eight children. She graduated from University of St. Thomas where she met the love of her life, Thomas. They married on November 28, 1957 and raised their children in Channelview, Texas where there was always an abundance of food in their kitchen and no one was a stranger.
Em enjoyed spending time with her family at her home in Huffman, reading, solving the crossword puzzle, and keeping us all up to date on current events, recipes, and other newspaper topics that she felt we needed to know.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Thomas Clement Pletcher, her eldest children, Mary Elizabeth Pletcher and Mark Thomas Pletcher, parents Arthur and Eugenia Stell, and great grandson Micah Thomas Batson.
She is survived by her Sons: John Pletcher (Debbie), Brian Pletcher (Jennifer), and Roger Pletcher; Daughter: Theresa Thompson (Bill); Sister: Dorothy Stasky (Ronald); 14 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.
There will be a celebration of Emerita's life on Saturday, February 27, 2021 at 1:00pm at Armenta's Mexican Restaurant at 823 Sheldon Rd, Channelview, TX 77530.

Emerita was a beautiful person, a wonderful wife, and a mother 24/7. She raised a special family with their values of both their parents. My heart goes out to her family as her loss will be felt yet the memories will be cherished in their heart. God bless each of you and comfort you as well in this difficult time.
