Ana Mattos, 75, “A Gift


God” passed suddenly Sunday, Feb. 4, 2007, at



surrounded by all of her children and many close relatives.

As an active member of the community she brought a smile to everyone’s face, serving coffee and cookies to travelers, and giving a helping hand to any in need.

She enjoyed cooking for any who entered her home, gardening, sewing and playing dominos.

This tender and beautiful woman touched all who met her. She taught us to love freely and to laugh without restraint, how to be generous of spirit, to be truthful no matter the consequences, to be hospitable to all and to have a humble heart. She was loved by all who knew her and will be missed beyond expression.

She is survived by her husband and true love, Bill Mattos; her three sons, Steven, Stanley and Stewart Mattos; her daughter, Sandee Baker; along with many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her mother, Guadalupe Martinez; five brothers; five sisters; and numerous nieces and nephews

A memorial service and celebration of her life will be held Sunday, Feb. 18, 2007, beginning at 11 a.m. at the Cinebar Community Club.

This devoted wife, mother, and friend will live in our hearts and memories forever.
