Below you will find a listing of people whose Lifetime was touched by the great Pauline Matthews. She was a devoted housewife and a mother of eleven children, who coincidentally, was very open and honest about how much she didn't know when she was first married and she used her shortcoming and triumphs as teaching tools and we are eternally grateful.Husband: Emmett Matthews Children: Emmett " Bucky" Matthews, Thelma Buck, Darlene Johnson, Paul (Janice) Matthews , Elaine Byrd, Michael, Ilene Matthews ,Charles, Lawrence "Snake", Imogene Matthews and Terry Matthews.

Very sorry to hear of the death of your Mother. Ms. Matthews was a very sweet lady. She was always a happy and jovial person whenever we would meet. She always called me "Little Gracie". I know that all of you will miss her dearly as I an certain that others who had the privilege of meeting and knowing her will miss her as well So to the Matthews Family I will say unto you "Just hold on to Gods unchanging hand and let not your heart be troubled.
