Gwendolyn JO Fleming

June 9, 1963 — March 29, 2022

Reflection of Life

Gwen was born on June 9, 1963 in Mt. Pleasant Texas to the late
Rufus Fleming and Juanita Wade. She was the youngest out of 3 siblings
Janet ,Donnell, and Odell and . At a very young age she moved to Los
Angeles with her family. Gwen found Christ at a very early age and
confessed the Lord as her personal savior. She graduated Washington
Prep High. Gwendolyn and Darrell Garrett united in holy matrimony on
November 14 1989.

After she married she gave birth to her oldest daughter Gwenisha,
and shortly after gave birth to youngest daughter Andrea. Gwen was a
loving mother and sister. There was no doubt she loved her family and
each name was imbedded in her heart .She was loved by everyone she
has ever come in contact with. Gwen always had a good sense of humor,
was the life of the party, loved to dance and have a good time. Last but
certainly not least she never took no for an answer.

One day things took a turn for Gwen that changed her life forever.
Because of this she relocated to Long Beach at Atlantic Memorial .A
special thanks to the doctors and nurses for an amazing job over the years.
She bought life and love into the facility and to everyone she met. Despite
the circumstance she always continued to smile, laugh and be merry.
Preceding her in death are parents Rufus and Juanita Fleming and
sister Janet Fleming. Remembering to cherish her life are her children
Gwenisha and Andrea. Her brothers O’dell, Donnell and husband Darrell
along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, and friends.
On the morning of March 29 th the heavenly host received order for a
pick up. The order specified that waiting would no longer be necessary for
his Christian solider. For her ticket was purchased long ago.
May Gwendolyn Jo Fleming rest in peace in the arms of her father in heaven.


Andrea's Letter,

Dear Mommy, Writing this has got to be the hardest thing I've had to
do in my entire life. Losing you has been heart breaking to say the least.
You were so many things to me. Not only were you my mother, my best
friend, my twin, my comedian, my pretty lady and most importantly, the
greatest gift that God has given me. I am so blessed that God chose you to
be my mother. You were such an amazing, strong, confident, loving, smart
and phenomenal woman.

No matter what you were going through, you stayed strong and kept
the faith. You were nothing short of anything. Your smile lit up the room.
You always kept it real like no other and didn’t care what people had to say
about you and that's what I loved most about you. I pray that I can be even
twice the woman that you were. There was no one like you and there never
will be.

Nothing and nobody can replace you or this empty broken piece of
me that left when you left to be with your Father God in heaven. I am at
peace knowing that you are no longer in pain and in a better place. You are
home with God now, and all I have is the fun and loving memories to
remember you by. I pray that I can continue to be strong and make you
proud. I'll love you forever and ever. You will always be in my heart my
guardian angel. I love you to the moon and back. I miss you so much. May
you continue to rest in peace.

-Your pretty girl Andrea


To my dearest Mommy, I love you and miss you very much. I even
miss you sometimes giving me a hard time. I miss our good laughs. You
always held a special place in my heart because I gave into whatever you
wanted or asked for. Thank you for your love and great memories while
here on this earth. God said your time was up here on Earth and it was
time to receive your new body and to be with him and family. Say hello to
everyone for me. I know I gained another beautiful guardian angel.

-Love always, your baby girl Gwenisha.


Gwen was faithful to the Lord and dedicated in sharing the gospel with
others. She always talked about making heaven her home.

-Darrell Garrett


Earlene Marbury
To my sister in law you will truly be missed. May you Rest in Peace.

-Earlene Marbury



Don't spend too much
time in mourning.
Tears are for the sad. I left
to be with Jesus, and
this should make you glad.
When I am gone, release me: let me go
I have so many things to see and do
You must not tie yourself to me with tears
Be happy that we had so many years
I gave you my love-You can only guess
How much you gave me happiness
And always remember, I did it my way.
