Mathews, Louella

Louella Mathews, 86, of Rio Rancho, left this earth to join her Lord and Savior on June 6, 2017.

Born in Nebraska during the early years of the Great Depression, she developed a strong work ethic that she instilled in her family. She eventually settled and raised three children, primarily on her own, in Hobbs, NM. After moving to Albuquerque in 1974, Louella worked for and retired from the US Department of Energy.

Louella was an avid reader, bridge player, gardener and church member. Her greatest devotion in life was her never-wavering love of the Lord.

Louella was preceded in death by her parents Myrtle and Dallas Stonebraker and her siblings Elmyrna Dean and Wilfred Stonebraker.

She is survived by daughter Cheryl and husband Fred Lete of Rio Rancho, son David (Dave) Mathews of Albuquerque, daughter Louanne and husband Demetrius Gianopoulos of Castle Rock, CO, five grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and countless friends.

A celebration of life will held on Thursday, June 15th, at 10:30 a.m., Calvary Chapel of Rio Rancho, 138 Frontage Rd NE, Rio Rancho, NM.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Calvary Chapel of Rio Rancho.
