    Lucille "Link" P. Mathewson  March 18, 1932 - January 22, 2014
    Link Mathewson truly lived. Her life was blessed and she blessed her friends, family and community with her generous loving spirit. She passed away in her home surrounded by those she loved and who loved her. Link was a woman of considerable talents and drive. Her passion for art and beauty and her love for family and friends were the major forces in her life. Her home—always open to those who knew her and to strays of both the feline and human varieties—was infused with the humble beauty, simple elegance and warmth that was uniquely Link. Not self-indulgent, she devoted herself to creating beauty to be shared: a carefully crafted table on Christmas Eve, a gorgeous hand-written note or a gourmet meal. She knew how to make a moment special.
