Monday, March 11, 2019Filled with Goshen memories, I offer my heartfelt condolences to the Matta family as they mourn the loss of their beloved mother. Mention in the obituary of Mrs. Matta in 1962 driving the "sporty Ford Galaxie 500" brings back a wonderful memory of riding in the back seat of it when I was eight years-old with a bunch of popsicle-eating kids only to discover that as we held up our melting pops in the moving convertible, we had sprayed the outside of the car with a sugary mess. Mrs. Matta could not have been more gracious and kind! Marie Matta will always be remembered as one of the great Goshen women/mothers during my childhood. May she rest in eternal peace.

Sunday, March 10, 2019Such a beautiful obituary of Aunt Marie. I always knew of her many talents and involvement in all chapters of her life. Aunt Marie always made one feel loved. Her warmth and special smile will be missed. My thought and prayers are with my Goshen cousins. Kathy

Sunday, March 10, 2019Aunt Marie Matta was one of kind . She and Uncle Johnny will not miss any event for their nieces and nephews. Many of us have beautiful blankets, pillows sets, doll clothes,sweaters When my first grand daughter was born she did a beautiful doll quilt.for her. When Uncle Johnny and Aunt Marie were dating down at the shore my grandmother made them take us to the boardwalk for rides and games, she was really hard on Aunt Marie boyfriends. But they did okay the wedding was beautiful .Aunt Marie made her dress out of pictures from Magnizes it was beautiful. She was a wonderful mother and loved Uncle Johnny, her children and all her extended family. Now they are back together. Love them .

Sunday, March 10, 2019Cecilia really captured the full story of Aunt Marie here in this Obituary. We remember many of the anecdotes especially winning the car and becoming bank manager. Our own mother shared many other stories about her, mainly multi-tasking all these roles but never losing sight of being a great parent. Hope your memories sustain you in the days and weeks ahead as you know she's now in a great place. Tom

Saturday, March 9, 2019Mrs. Matta was one of those unique women who managed to have 1 foot in the traditional homemaker box and the other in the newly liberated working woman box. She seemed to manage it all effortlessly. She seemed to like nothing better than her children coming home from college bringing the occasional stray roommate. I looked forward to those visits because of the sincere feelings of happiness in that home. Rest in peace Marie, knowing that your children will take it from here and I have no doubt that they will carry on just as you have.
