Graca Fern Fleischer was born October 10, 1940 in Butler, Missouri to Abram “Abe” Henry and Edith Fern Ehart Berry. She graduated from Butler High School in May of 1958. 

Graca was united in marriage to Howard Dennis Fleischer on June 3, 1960. To this union three girls were born, Gayle Ann, Vicky Jo, and Judy Kay.

Graca worked over 40 years in insurance, greeting customers with a smile on her face everyday. First with Farm Bureau Insurance, then G. J. Six Insurance, Krinn-Cook Insurance and finally at Cook Insurance until her retirement in 2005. 

In retirement Graca enjoyed volunteering at the Community Food Pantry of Butler through 2012, then volunteering at the Pantry Thrift Store from 2013 to 2020.

She was a life-long Butler resident and she and Howard spent 43 years in their home on Fort Scott Street. She loved decorating her home for the holidays, hosting family dinners, gardening, planting and tending to her flowers every summer. She was an Elvis fan, enjoyed traveling, made excellent peanut clusters, and popcorn, but her greatest pleasure in life was to spend time with her daughters and grandsons.
