Mattie Marie Jones Coleman

Posted By Kyle Nikola On September 10, 2021 @ 10:02 am In Obituaries | 1 Comment

Mattie Marie Jones Coleman died on September 8, 2021 after a series of illnesses. Born October 25, 1925 in Bulloch County, she was the eleventh of twelve children born to James and Viola Akins Jones. She attended schools in Bulloch County and graduated from Marvin Pittman Laboratory High School. Shortly thereafter, she married her one love, Loren B. (Pat) Coleman and they shared a fifty-four year marriage.

She was preceded in death by her parents, nine brothers and two sisters, her husband and one son, Linward. She is survived by her son James (Annette) and her daughters, Wanda (William) Parnell and Gayle (Ken) Hughes. In addition she is survived by seven grandchildren, Craig (Jennifer) Coleman, Brad (LaTrelle) Coleman, Aaron (Virginia) Coleman, Lauren (Scott) Bragg, Philip (Samantha) Hughes, Andrew Hughes and Matthew Coleman; eight great-grandchildren, Jaylin Coleman, Hannah Coleman, Morgan Coleman, Megan Coleman, Mason Coleman, Matthew Tyler Coleman, Joshua Bragg, and Rhys Hughes.

She was a member of Upper Mill Creek Primitive Baptist Church but attended churches of several denominations. Her faith never wavered as she encountered one medical adversity after the other. Instead, she trusted in God and lived according to His teachings.

Best known for her work ethic, Mattie retired from three different companies–Bradley Plywood, M&M Stores and Kroger Supermarkets. Each time she retired, she soon reentered the work force and constantly maintained that if she was able, she would like nothing more than to go back to work. She was also known for her baking abilities, developing her own recipe for pound cakes. She turned these out by the hundreds and won praise throughout the country for them.

Special Thanks to Dr. Muhammad Masroor for his excellent care over many years, and to the staff of Tara Nursing Home for the care given to her over the past several years. Very special thanks to her friend, roommate at Thunderbolt Nursing and Rehab and confidant, Sarah Horton.

Visitation will be held at Central Baptist Church at 10 AM on Monday, September 13 with service following at 11 AM, the Reverend Kenny Harrellson officiating. Interment will be at Upper Mill Creek Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery in Bulloch County at 2 PM.

Condolences for the family of “Mattie Marie Jones Coleman”

Condolence from Malyssa Ashbaugh on September 10th, 2021 5:00 pm

So much love for this special lady. I enjoyed every moment that I got to spend with Ms. Mattie. She was a spitfire, one-of-a-kind, the type of lady you want on your side. I didn’t get to meet her, until late in her life (just a few years ago), but I am thankful for the time we had. Watching her precious relationship with her great-grandson, Joshua, was like nothing I have ever seen. She was best friends with her daughter, Wanda, and her grand-daughter, Lauren. I loved seeing them together. Making an unbreakable bond, a best friend, “at the end of the road”, with Sarah Horton, was also a blessing to witness. What a wonderful lady, with so many people who loved her dearly. What a wonderful family who stayed by her side, every step of the way. What a wonderful legacy for so many to be proud of.
