Obituary for Ella Wynn Matthews

Mrs. Ella Louise Wynn Matthews, 92, passed away on Sunday, May 17, 2020, at Springbrook Rehabilitation and Nursing Home in Clayton.

Ella was a native of Martin County. She and her family lived in Kinston, NC for 25 years. She later lived in Fayetteville, NC and was a member of Cedar Falls Baptist Church. In 1999 she moved to Clayton to be closer to family and to care for her husband. She was a member of the Amelia Christian Church Family. She loved to cook and to spend time and share treats with the sick and shut-ins.

Ella's family was her greatest love. She never turned down an opportunity to be with her family and extended family. Time with her Grandbabies and her Great Grandbabies was time that she truly cherished. She remained in her home until 2019 with care from a special group of angels. They loved and cared for “Miss” Ella.

Mrs. Matthews was preceded in death by her husband, Lanier Earl Matthews, her parents, Joe and Effie Wynn and four brothers, George, Louis, Ben and Billy Wynn.

She is survived by her daughters, Priscilla Prevette and husband, Richard, and Kathy Edwards and husband, Mac, all of Clayton; grandchildren, Courtney Cabe and husband, Scott of Pittsboro, NC, Brandon Prevette of Memphis, TN, Britni Grimes and husband , Brian of Raleigh, NC, Nicole Zimmerman and husband, Paul of Carrboro, NC and Ashley Natad and husband, Mario of Palo Alto, CA; great grandchildren, Brayden Cabe, Jackson Prevette, Emma and Chloe Zimmerman and Lia Natad; brother, Joseph D. Wynn of Everetts; a large loving family of nieces and nephews and their families; and dedicated and loving caregivers Vivan White, Chaneta White, Deborah Altman, and Barbara Eason.

A private graveside service will be held at Martin Memorial Gardens, Williamston, NC with scripture and memories shared by a special great nephew, Noah Wynn. The family will plan a Celebration of Life at a later date and will notify family and friends.
