Mary was predeceased by her beloved husband and dance partner of sixty-seven years, George W. Matascik, her sister Madeline (Mills) Prescott, her brothers Charles L. and Neal C. Mills and her son-in-law William Metzler. Mary’s family expresses their gratitude to Michelle, Christine and all the staff at Autumn Lake of Cromwell who gave from their hearts exceptional and loving care.

Sandy, Nancy, Bruce, Matthew, Louise and family,
I am so sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. Mary was my next door neighbor since I was five years old. Her family and home were her pride and joy. She was out working in the yard everyday. You will be missed. RIP.

We are so saddened to hear the news of Mrs Matascik's passing. She was our neighbor across the street for many years. She was the nicest, sweetest women ever. Always smiling! My dad, Bill Pearce enjoyed her and George's company so much!
Our condolences to the Family, she sure was a treasure.
