You were a wonderful aunt to many as well as a wife, mother, daughter, and grandmother. You wore many hats. You were a gentle soul, a Christian and a compassionate woman. You had a zest for living. Forever reunited with your beloved husband and son, your work is done here on earth; may you Rest In Peace.

Sweet Aunt Mattie you were a beautiful Angel here on earth, treating others with compassion, love and understanding like our father in heaven. I have heard many stories about you from my mom, Gail (Willie-Gail) Brown - Senchak-Russell,as well as many from you. I was so happy to have found you again and chatted with you during this past year. I will miss those conversation but I will also cherish them . Even though I never got to meet you in person here on Earth we will meet in our Lords Kingdom and rejoice together. Heaven has gained a beautiful Angel to watch over all of us until we meet again. Love you sweetie.
