Catherine Lucille Mattingly, 93, our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother and matriarch of the Mattingly family, passed away April 3, 2019 at Signature Health Care in Taylorsville.
She was Catholic in faith. She was a homemaker until the death of her husband. She then went to work for the state of Kentucky Human Resources Department in Lebanon, where she retired after 13 years. She was a leader in her community, a Kentucky Colonel and loved to dance and travel. Mom loved and lived life to the fullest, always willing to give and help anyone in need. Her greatest joy was her family where she was the driving force, steadfast, strong and driven. She raised, taught, loved and supported family to be healthy, happy and loving members of their own families and communities.
She was preceded in death by: her loving husband of 42 years, John Marion (Keg) Mattingly; her parents, Mary Bernadette Mattingly and John Robert Mattingly; a sister, Geraldine Milby; brothers Melvin, J.C., Spencer, and Paul Mattingly; daughters-in-law, Rowena, Fay, Charlotte, and Karen Mattingly; son-in-law, Leslie Newton; grandsons Jim Jim Mattingly and Leonard Clark; granddaughters, Christy Mattingly and Kathy Joe Kidwell.

She is the last of an era gone forever. We are all lucky and blessed to have been touched by her love and kindness! The footprints this lady left on our hearts is immeasurable! She will be truly missed by all.
