Mattie was born in Lake City, South Carolina.

Family and God were her top priorities. She loved reading the Bible and raised her children to believe in God. Mattie will be remembered as a loving and kind mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. The warmth of her hugs, depth of her hearty laugh, and her limitless love is felt by her family everyday. She is survived by a host of family members and many friends.
