Maggie Fletcher is the wife of Phil Fletcher and the mother of Terry Fletcher. In May 1979, a feud began between Phil and Joe Sugden over money Phil owed. Phil was accidentally shot in the leg when his gun went off and he tried to pin the incident on Joe. Maggie was unsure if Phil was telling the truth so she sought out Donald Hinton's help. Eventually, Terry, who witnessed the shooting, revealed that Joe didn't actually shoot Phil.
