After speaking to a family member I didn't realize the passing of aunt Mattie. I'm Clifford granddaughter, Mattie's sister. Sending prayers and condolences to aunt Mattie's sons, husband, family and friends. She was truly and inspirational lady, I'm blessed to have got to talk to her when I could. RIP aunt Mattie, I will truly miss our conversation a. God has an awesome angel and I'm sure you are catching up with your siblings love you.
I'm writing to send my condolences to Dr. Sommerville and his children. I read Mrs.
Somerville's passing exactly three months
ago in The Blade's obituary. She was my
7th grade math teacher at Old West End Jr.
High during the 1982-83 school year. I was
13, now I'm 44. She taught my older siblings, Lisa and Chris at both Glenwood
Elementary and Old West End in the '70s.
Also, her son Barry was a good substitute
teacher. I apologize for signing late.
May she rest in peace.
I will miss Mattie a lot. She was always cheerful and in a good mood, no matter what was going on. JC would call to check on me. We would talk a couple of minutes, and he he would give the phone to Mattie. Mattie and I would talk at least 30 minutes to an hour. She was funny and always made me laugh. When I came to vist her and JC, I was at home. I didn't want to leave. I'm praying and asking God to comfort the family. Love you cousin Mattie.
Joe, I was very sorry to learn of Mattie's passing. She was a wonderful lady, and will be missed by all who had the good fortune to know her. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Linda Murphy
May God wrap his arms around the Sommerville family during this difficult time. Mrs. Sommerville was one of my teachers at Old West End. She and Mrs. J. Scott were my favorite educators and both made a profound impact on my life. I am saddened by her loss, but I know she is with God.
To Dr. Sommerville And The Family Of Mrs. Mattie C. Sommerville: Your Waterside neighbors are sending our heartfelt condolences to the loss of your wife and loved one. We pray that GOD will love, comfort and massage your heart with Peace.

One of my favorite teachers whom I've always thought of throughout the years. She was loving, caring and had a wonderful sense of humor. I'm blessed to have spoken with her many years later as an adult to let her know how special she was to me. She will be deeply missed.

What a wonderful woman she will be truly missed by many especially my grandmother who has been friends with the Sommerville family since I was a tot. My prayer go out to the entire family.
You were a sweetie! 7th grade math at Old West End JHS.
Dear Family members,
We are sorry to hear of your loss and know that God is available to help you all now and later as you miss your love one but you will never forget. Keep the precious memories close to your hearts and remember the lessons she left.
My prayers go out to the Sommerville family. Mrs. Sommerville was my math teacher at Old West End. I loved going to Math class! Two things were guaranteed, we were going to learn and we were going to laugh! At the age of 48, I don't remember clearly of my Middle School days. However, Mrs. Sommerville's voice, and her stance against foolishness in her class are very clear! I'm a better person because of what she deposited into her students.
My Sympathies to the Sommerville family.
Joe, my sympathy to you and your family. I'm so sorry for your loss. You and your family will be in my prayers.
A lovely lady!! I worked with her and played golf with her . I will miss her. Gary v Stewart west palm beach fl.
