  1. My Great Aunt Mattie was a wonderful lady. The nephew and nieces referred to in the obituary were my dad and my aunts. I was only 13 when she died, but I do remember some trips she made to visit it us in Wisconsin, which I remember really enjoying. During one trip, she brought me a beautiful handmade quilt that I still treasure today. The obituary sounds like she had a very small, dwindling family, but if she were alive today, she would boast of six grand-nieces, five grand-nephews; 17 great-grandnieces and nephews, and six great-great grandnieces and nephews. She would be glad to know that we have lived well and prospered.
