Obituary for Marie Martha Mathews (Sieger)

Print
Fraser resident Marie Martha (Sieger) Mathews died Monday, Oct. 15, with her family at her bedside. She was born Feb. 11, 1923, the youngest of three children of Arthur F. and Martha (Ahrens) Sieger. She attended the Cady Corners School and Fraser High School, graduating in 1941 as the class valedictorian.

She met her future husband, Navy Corpsman Charles William (Bill) Mathews of Cumberland, MD, on the steps of the US Capitol while she was on her high school class trip to Washington DC. They corresponded while he was deployed on hospital ships to the Pacific theater during World War II and married in Fraser Jan. 17, 1946, a month after his Navy discharge.

She was employed as a bookkeeper with Detroit Bank and Trust Co. in downtown Detroit, residing first in the Gratiot/7 Mile area, and later moving to Clinton Township before the family's move into Fraser in 1952. She also worked for many years as bookkeeper for Children's Aid and Family Services of Macomb County (Child and Family Services) in Mount Clemens and Clinton Township.

A life-long member of St. John Lutheran Church of Fraser, she was a member of its Ladies Society and assisted at society rummage sales and with the group's special event meal services. She was named the society's Woman of the Year in the early 2000s. She and Bill enjoyed traveling throughout the US and to Europe and the Middle East with tour groups. Gardening and family get-togethers also kept her busy in retirement.

She is survived by children Nancy Mathews, Charles William Mathews Jr. (Mona), Judy Lapak (Jim) and Tracey Fish (Brian).

Her husband Bill; one daughter, Jill Miller; granddaughter Jennifer Kless; siblings Hulda Kleino and Henry Sieger and her parents preceded her in death.

Survivors also include 9 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren; two nieces and nine nephews.

In lieu of flowers, please honor Marie’s love of dogs with a contribution in her name to Friends of Detroit Animal Care and Control (DACC), Attn. Renena McCaskill, 7401 Chrysler Drive, Detroit, MI 48211 or see their PayPal link at https:/www.friendsofdacc.org or to St. John Branching Out Building Campaign.
