Marvella Clawson Fletcher, 74, of Greenville, Ohio, passed away Jan. 11, 2021, at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton due to complications with COVID-19. She was born August 28, 1946 in Anderson, Indiana and grew up in Muncie. She was a member of Muncie Southside High School's class of 1964, finishing at the top of her graduating class, and attended Ball State University on an academic scholarship. She is survived by her husband of 54 years, Tom, her daughter Annmarie (Scott) Jenkins of Plainfield IL, her son Thomas II, of Columbus OH and her granddaughters Olivia and Anna Jenkins. Marvella was proceeded in death by her parents, Paul and Ella (Beeman) Clawson and her sister Marlene Kaufman.

Marvella retired in 2008 after serving as Vice President of Finance at Wayne Hospital for ten years. She also served as the Compliance Officer and chaired numerous internal committees. She was active in the Ohio Hospital Association (OHA) and served as Wayne Hospital’s Advocacy Representative for the OHA. Prior to joining Wayne Hospital, Marvella served as Greenville City Auditor and Clerk of Council for eighteen years. She served as President of the Ohio Municipal League and served on the boards of the Ohio Municipal Finance Officers Association and the Ohio Municipal Clerks Association.

Marvella was very active in the community and was a member of numerous boards and organizations. She was appointed to the Board of Trustees for Edison State Community College in 2013, most recently serving as Vice Chairman and was to be in the incoming Chairman.

Marvella’s greatest love was her family, especially her granddaughters. She loved nothing more than watching them play soccer and basketball as well as playing Shanghai Rum and Yahtzee with them. She also traveled to Las Vegas where she enjoyed playing video poker and winning jackpots. She often used her winnings to buy a new Louis Vuitton purse or to shop at Chico's.

Marvella mentored countless young women through the years. She was known for helping others any way that she could and she shared her vast knowledge of benefits and insurance as well as many life lessons with anyone who could benefit from her wisdom. As her granddaughter Olivia said, "Grandma had the answer for everything" and she did. She will be missed deeply by her family and by everyone whose life she touched.

My dear, dear friend, it does not seem possible that I cannot give you a hug, a kind word or laugh together at our class reunions over the silliest things. Your friendship and our family's friendship lasted over so many years. Your Tom is so special to me, only the three of us knew how much. We will be together in heaven one day. Love and hugs to you. Our love from both of us. Beth and Tom Bugg
