Carole, Mike & Family, Aunt Matts' passing will surely leave an emptiness in your hearts as well as everyone who knew her. Whenever there was a family gathering, it was always evident that Aunt Matts was there. She was such a presence and had a way of making people laugh without even trying. Laughter was just a big part of her personality.... Her journey here may be over, but her eternal journey with God, Uncle George, her family and friends has just begun. Our Love and Deepest Sympathies, Donna, Larry & Tim

Carole, Mike, and Family,
Aunt Matts' passing will surely leave an emptiness in your lives. She was always such a presence at family gatherings...usually making everyone laugh, and that is the part of her we will remember and miss the most. But now she is with "her George", and sharing in God's eternal peace. Our Love, Donna, Larry & Tim

I have such fond memories of your mother. She was such a neat little lady and so much fun! What a blessing she was at your family gatherings. May God's promise of life eternal be a comfort to you all. Linda Beegle

Carole, Mike and family, it is sad to see Aunt Matts pass. I will always appreciate her upbeat, lively, happy personality. One scenario that comes to mind was Kim's baby shower and she was the first to run across the room to greet her but they hadn't even met yet. We all got a huge laugh out of that. Even in her later years, she took joy in conversing with the children. Her positive temperament will be missed! Love Paul, Kim & girls

Sorry to hear about your mother. I recently asked Jeanne if she had seen you and how Miss Madie was. I am sure she just wore out. Aging isn't very kind sometimes.
We still have our good memories of her.

Carole and Mike,
I am so sorry to hear about Aunt Madeline. You know how I feel about her...such a very special person. She was the "spunky" one. I always admired her energy, enthusiasm and love of life! She will be missed.
All my love, Patty Simmons

Carol & family, Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. She was very blessed to have had such a devoted family to love and care for her. I will remember her ornery smile and contagious laugh and the way she lit up as she told stories of "measuring men for suites". Also, her little scream every time we did her brows like it was a surprise. Love, Jeanne Mullins & Kristin
