Text size

Mrs. Mary K. Mathews, of The Woodlands, TX, passed away peacefully on Friday, September 1, 2017 at the age of 89. Mary was born to parents Henry Oblander and Katie Kraft Oblander on November 30, 1927 in Shattuck, OK. She was the youngest of 3 daughters. She married the love of her life, JD Mathews, on February 15, 1951 and spent 52 wonderful years with him. The couple had two children, Bob and Dennis. Mary was a talented seamstress and crocheter. She worked in a bank. She enjoyed gardening, puzzles, card and domino games, and visiting with her friends. She loved growing old with JD and raising their sons together; she was very proud of both of them and wouldn't hesitate to tell anyone who would listen. She got immense pleasure interacting with her 5 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren as they grew. Mary is survived by her son, Dennis Mathews and wife Becky; her grandchildren, Brandie Gillette and husband Robert, Brigette Thoma and husband Chris, Jessica Dorchak and husband Matt, Jennifer Danek and her husband Chad, and Joshua Mathews; and great grandchildren, Elexa and Paxton Gillette, Kian and Kyler Thoma, Payton and Bryleigh Dorchak, and William and Abram Danek. She is preceded in death by her husband, JD Mathews; her son, Bob Mathews; and her parents, Henry and Katie. Mary was a devoted wife, a doting mother and grandmother, and a good friend to many. We count ourselves lucky to have spent many years learning from her. A private memorial has taken place. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to American Heart Association or a charity of choice in Mary's name.
