Ann Elizabeth Mattingly

Ann Elizabeth Mattingly of Boston, Virginia (Culpeper County) died at her residence on June 20, 2020. Ann, daughter of Charles and Agnes Mattingly, was born in Leonardtown, Maryland on August 27, 1923 and would have been 97 on her birthday. She is survived by her siblings: Joan Frances Raley of Avenue, Maryland; Margaret Yowaiski of Leonardtown, Maryland; Ruth Brown of La Luz, New Mexico, and her brother Joe Mattingly (Nancy) of Chaptico, Maryland and a wonderful large family of nieces and nephews. She is also survived by Nancy C. Garrett, of Boston, Virginia, her roommate of 55 years and her caretaker. She was preceded in death by her brothers C. Jenkins (Jenks) and Miles Mattingly and her sisters Mary Jane Mattingly, Betty Potts, and Mary Agnes (Sis) Farrell. Ann was also preceded in death by her long time and wonderful friend/roommate Jessie C. Barton. Ann was retired from the Association of American Railroads where she served for 40 years in the law department library. Before she was taken ill she loved her retirement of life at the farm in Boston. Ann was an avid tennis player and won many trophies as a bowler. It has been said that she must have been born with playing cards in her hands because she was talented bridge player and wicked poker player. Believe it or not Ann also played softball (first base) with a league in Washington, DC (where she met Nancy who played second base.) Ann was the most dedicated Redskin fan even after all of their losing seasons.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday, June 27, 2020 at 10:00 AM in Holy Angels Catholic Church in Avenue, MD with Father Stephen Wyble officiating. Interment will be alongside her parents at St. Aloysius Cemetery in Leonardtown, Maryland. Serving as pallbearers will be Arthur Farrell, Al Raley, Ronnie Farrell, Mike Yowaiski, Richard Potts, and Steve Mattingly.

In lieu of flowers donations in Ann’s honor and memory may be made to Precious Blood Catholic Church, 114 East Edmondson Street Culpeper, VA 22701 (where Ann was an active member for approximately 40 years and right up to her death) or to Hospice of the Piedmont, 675 Peter Jefferson Parkway, Suite 300, Charlottesville, Virginia 22911.
