Rosemary  Mattick
Rosemary Mattick, 90, took her last earthly breath at home, on October 13, 2019. She was born on January 3, 1929, to Benjamin and Mary V. Jones in Bridgeton, IN.
Rosemary married Joseph Mattick on July 26, 1947, and together they raised four sons.
Rosemary taught Sunday school at Lyford Bible Church for many years, where she encouraged her students to memorize the 23rd Psalm. She was also known at church for her role as the "Pocket Lady."
Rosemary could always find beauty in simple things and loved to collect items that fascinated her. Many wedding and birthday cakes were decorated by her for family and friends. She loved all animals but was especially fond of cats. Rosemary was also an avid gardener and crafter.
She is survived by her brother Robert (Maryanne) Jones of Rockville, her sons Larry (Joyce), Doug, Kenneth (Virginia/Dolly) and James; grandchildren, Carolyn (Zach) Mattick-Hughes, Joe (Beth) Mattick, Jennifer (Justin) Clutter, Donna (Rob) Grizzle, Stephen (Maria) Mattick, T.J. (Tomi) Mattick, LeeAnne (Paul) Bamberg, Jim Mattick, Justin (Karly) Mattick, Heidi Mattick, and Hayden Mattick; and 15 great-grandchildren. Her brothers, William, Omar, Joseph, Mordecai and Benjamin Jr. preceded her in death; as did her sisters, Florence Kite, Evanell Taylor and Martha Downing.
The funeral will be at Frist Funeral Home in Clinton, IN. The service will be at 11 a.m. Friday morning with a viewing from 4 to 8 on Thursday night and 10 to 11 Friday morning. Pastor David Rockhill will be officiating.
The family would like to thank Heart to Heart Hospice, her longtime physician Dr. Mardini, and her caregivers Eunice Stroot and Jeanie Marshall for all the care and support they have provided.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Heart to Heart Hospice or Alzheimer's Association.
