Mary Eilert Mathews

May 23, 1926 — June 22, 2022

Mary Mathews, Grandma-Great to those who loved her best, went home to her lord, June 22 2022. She was 96.

Mary was the Daughter of Sylvia and Herbert Eilert. She was the proud graduate of Arsenal Technical High School in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Vernon Mathews was the love of Mary’s life. She was married to him for 56 years but loved him for 76 years. They are together again in paradise.

A Hoosier by birth, she lived in Indianapolis from 1946-1981. Mary moved with Vernon to New Smyrna Beach, Florida in 1982. In 2003 she moved to Mint Hill, North Carolina and finally settled in Monroe, North Carolina. Mary and Vernon travel the world, and she is prominently featured, much to her chagrin, in amazing slides from some of the world’s most famous landmarks.

Mary was a domestic goddess. She was an amazing cook, well known for her fried sea food, cookies, and candies. She was a party host extraordinaire, and the maker of Christmas crafts for everyone. She was the second in command of the USS Never Sailed, a proud part time shrimping boat. She would always be found tied by a rope to the captain, Vern Mathews, the only one in the boat that could swim. Like every good Hoosier, in March, she could be found watching basketball.

Mary was baptized into the Baptist church, in the river near the Mathews’ family homestead, in Buddha, Indiana. She was a doer and nothing was too hard for her. She was always involved with the nursery and children’s church. Her mission was to lead the little ones to Jesus. She dedicated her life to service, and was sure and certain of the rapture to come.

Mary is survived by her daughter, Becky Birdsell and her daughter-in-law, Jan Mathews. She has six grand-children and their spouses: Derick and Amy Birdsell, Chris and Mary Birdsell, Stacey and Jeff Klein, Kari and Chuck Ricks, Cory and Becky Mathews, and Kyle and Stephanie Mathews. She has 10 great-grandchildren.

A graveside service will be held at 1:00pm on Thursday, June 30, 2022 at the White River Baptist Church in Bedford.

In lieu of flowers, Mary’s family requests donations be made to Servants Quarters Fellowship. A church dear to Mary’s heart. The address is 1429 Sabal Palm Drive, Edgewater, Florida 32132.

Local arrangements are by the Ferguson-Lee Chapel of Thorne-George Family Funeral Homes in Bedford.

Nana Jo (Deputy) Jones

Oct. 11, 1956 — June 19, 2022

Nana Jo (Deputy) Jones, an amazing mother, grandmother, wife, and friend died peacefully at her home in Mitchell on 19 June 2022 after a courageous battle against cancer at the age of 65.

Nana was born on 11 October 1956 to James and Kathleen “Katie” (Cooper) Deputy in Bedford, Indiana.

She was a free-spirited force of nature who always lit up any room she entered. Nana loved her family and friends fiercely and was a dedicated U.S. Army mom who traveled the world to support her daughter, son-law and granddaughter. She never met a stranger (much to the chagrin of her daughter), would give the shirt off her back to anyone in need, and loved her four-legged fur kids (and all animals) with a passion. She had an infectious laugh similar to a witch’s cackle and could cuss like a sailor, but she was an incredible human being with a heart of gold that will be sorely missed.

Nana is survived by her husband of 29 years Joseph Jones, her daughter Lieutenant Colonel Amanda Akers-Vornholt (U.S. Army Retired), her son-in-law Lieutenant Colonel Wayne Vornholt (U.S. Army Retired), her granddaughter Chloe Vornholt, and her incredible Goddaughter, Kattie (Hughes) Bond and her beautiful children Logan, Audi, and Dallis-Lynn and her niece, Lily, who affectionately called her OG (Old Girl).

The family will hold a private celebration to honor a truly remarkable woman. In lieu of flowers please send donations in her name to the White River Humane Society of Lawrence County.

Cresthaven Funeral Home is entrusted with her care.
