MERIDIAN —     UNION - Services for Pauline Germany Matthews will be held today, at 2 p.m., at Bluff Springs Church of God, 14990 Road 210, Union, with Rev. Paul Ninemire and Rev. Jeff Hancock officiating. Burial will be in Union City Cemetery with Stephens Funeral Home of Union in charge of arrangements.

    Mrs. Matthews, 103, died in Union, on Saturday, June 8, 2013, at her home. Pauline, the daughter of the late Josie Ozborn and Sam Germany, was born in Neshoba County, on March 28, 1910.

    Mrs. Matthews lived in Neshoba County and the Town of Union her entire life. From the beginning, she attended Bluff Springs Church of God, her mother having taken her there as an infant. Therefore, her family chose to return to this church for her funeral service while knowing her soul departed at the time of her death to enter the Church Triumphant.

    Survivors include her daughter, Polly Matthews Gordon and her husband Marcus Gordon of Union; one son, Milton “Bud” Matthews of Pearl; four grandchildren: Craig Gordon and his wife Brenda Lamb Gordon of Oxford, Teresa Gordon Parker of Louisville, Darin Gordon and his wife Polly Wilkins Gordon of Corinth, Texas, and Brian Gordon of Union; two great-grandchildren: Lanna Parker and Lara Kelle Parker; and, a number of nieces, nephews, and cousins.

    She was preceded in death by her husband of 46 years, Hugh Matthews; and, her six siblings, four of whom reached adulthood.
