Funeral Services:

Virgie Paulette Fancher, 67, of Charlotte, a selfless and generous wife and mother, passed away on July 13, 2018 in Charlotte. She was born on December 6, 1950 to Orville and June (Thompson) Hollister in Battle Creek. She graduated in 1969 from Olivet High School. On October 3, 1970 she married Delbert Fancher and together they raised three daughters.

Paulette worked as an injection molder for 21st Century Plastics after her children were grown. She retired in 2014. In her spare time, Paulette loved to go shopping, sew and knit. Many times she was able to make cute gifts such as her version of Care Bears and Pound Puppies for her children at Christmas time. Her family will always cherish Paulette’s great sense of humor, which was demonstrated during time spent with her family and friends.  Paulette was always ready to pull together a gathering of family whether it was for birthdays, holidays, or any other excuse to get together. Her grandchildren will fondly remember the times they spent at Paulette’s house and the special treats they would share. She never missed her grandchildren’s sporting events, plays, etc.
