Ms. Rudean A. Mathis, age 86, of Forsyth County passed away Thursday, May 5, 2016, at Northside Hospital-Forsyth. Born in Forsyth County, Feb. 9, 1930, she was the daughter of the late Lelia Mae Bagley and John Howard Anderson.
Ms. Mathis was a member of Sharon Baptist Church, but in later years attended Brookwood Baptist Church until bad health prevented her from being with the church family she loved. She was a skillful housewife who diligently grew food in the garden for canning to last through the winter months, and a compassionate care provider who took care of her elderly mother-in-law and daughter, who had brain damage from a car accident.
She is preceded in death by her daughter, Martha Jean Hastings; along with seven brothers and sisters.
Survivors include her loving husband of almost 69 years on June 14, Lenon Gershon Mathis; four children, Danny Charles Mathis (Janis Mathis), Teresa Ann McLaughlin (Patrick McLaughlin), Marilyn Daine Cheek (Greg Cheek), Sharon Lynn Parker (Steve Parker); nine grandchildren, Kristie Kilgore, Michelle Wilson, Misty Small, Cherie Brannon, Doug Mathis, Gregory Dexter Cheek Jr., Barry Parker, Cindy Austin, and Dane Blake Cheek; nine great-grandchildren, Tyler, Cole and Gracie Wilson, Jacob and Kendal Mathis; Daniel and Danica Brannon; Presley and William Cheek; along with many other loving friends and relatives.
Services were held Tuesday, May 10, at 11 a.m., in the chapel of Ingram Funeral Home with Pastors Donnie Nix and Danny Brannon officiating. Interment followed at Cross Plains Baptist Church Cemetery.
The family will receive friends at the funeral home Tuesday, from 9 a.m., until the hour of service.
Serving as active pallbearers were Dexter Cheek, Doug Mathis, Jamie McLaughlin, Barry Parker, Brian Austin and Blake Cheek.
