Obituary for Anne Matthews

Anne Matthews, 94, of La Porte, passed away peacefully at 4:59 p.m., Thursday, November 29, 2018 at La Porte Hospital with her family by her side.

She was born May 20, 1924, in London, England, to Frederick and Alice (Jordan) Eaton.

Anne was a homemaker who lovingly cared for her family. She and her husband, David, owned and operated Little Bohemia Restaurant in New Buffalo, MI from 1970 – 1980. Anne had a beautiful smile and voice. She was the “life of the party” and enjoyed singing and dancing. Anne was a loving, kind and compassionate person who would never hurt anyone and would always try to cheer everyone up. She was deeply religious and a true Proverbs 31 Woman. “We lost a beautiful soul on earth and God gained an angel. She was our cuddly teddy bear.”

On September 26, 1944, she married the love of her life, David Burns Matthews, who preceded her in death on August 8, 2004.

Also preceding in death were one daughter, Patricia E. Nichols; and numerous siblings.

Surviving are her children, David R. Matthews of South Bend, Sandra A. (Wilbur J., Jr.) Wickham of Woodstock, IL and Michelle Matthews of La Porte; four grandchildren, Anthony Malysiak, Catherine Fossler, Michael Nichols and Kimberly Nemmers; and four great grandchildren, Cody Fossler, Taylor Fossler, Claire Nemmers and Leah Nemmers.

A celebration of life will be held at 3 p.m., Saturday, December 15, 2018 at St. John’s United Church of Christ Chapel, 101 St. John’s Rd., Michigan City, IN 46360 with Pastor Bill Fine officiating. Lakeview Funeral Home and Crematory, La Porte (219) 362-3100 is caring for the arrangements.
