    Everytime I saw Matilde, she was laughing and happy. She had a contagious laugh and vey independent ans strong woman
    She lived for Jesus and her family. I will always remember her smile and charisma. May she rest in the arms of our savior and we all hope to see you in eternity. God bless the family.

    I met Mati 25 years ago we have been friends since then, but Mati was more then a friend she became my spiritual mother. God put her in my path when I needed a friend the most. Her faith made her a strong and a wise woman. No matter when I called her she always had something positive to share to encourage me. This is not goodbye but a farewell I will see you again in heaven. I miss you

    I remember Mati’s spirit and love for the Lord. I believe she will live on through Lydia, Maggie, Leslie, and Meagan until we all meet again in heaven. I also remember she always had the perfect all natural remedy for any sickness or ailment. Praying for the entire family. May the Lord wrap His loving arms around you all.

    When I first met Mati at my wedding to her step daughter, Helen Oliviieri, I so appreciated her infectious laugh and smile. Then I found out what a love she had for her Savior and that she was an awesome prayer warrior. We knew that we were being prayed for daily. When my mother passed on Mati became my new earthly mother. She will be missed as we celebrate her new birth in Heaven with Jesus.
