Marjorie Imaizumi Fletcher was an energetic, quick-witted, fun-loving woman. Her passing on July 2, 2023, in Salt Lake City, Utah at the age of 94 was a milestone in itself. Marjorie was born to Eiji and Mito (Furutachi) Imaizumi in Gardena, California. She spent her formative years farming with her parents and five older siblings in Southern California. WWII led to the relocation of the family to Idaho, eventually leading to life in Utah. She graduated from Davis High School in Utah.
Marjorie’s 41 year civil service career took her to Colorado, New Jersey, Korea, Washington, D.C. and then San Francisco. Her accomplishments and eventual position as the Director of Information Systems for HUD were unprecedented. She was overseeing the computer operators for many western states including Hawaii. She was truly a trail blazer.
Her retirement from HUD led her to a second career with the Japanese Community Cultural Center of Northern California (JCCCNC). Marjorie, as the Executive Administrative Assistant became an integral part of the Center, its programs and service to the Japanese American community. She retired after 30 plus years at The Center to move closer to her family in Utah.
Marjorie was the last surviving sibling and is survived by her son, Stephen Oda, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, cousin, nieces and nephews in California, Texas and Colorado.
