Mattie married the love of her life, Russell Trantham, in Mexia on October 22, 1955 and they were blessed with two sons, Stephen and Michael. Mattie dearly loved her two sons but when the grandchildren came along, they truly won her heart, she was always so very proud of them. Family was very important to her, however, it extended from her immediate family to church family and beyond – she loved everyone. She also had a very special companion that she thought the world of, Little Bear.
It was evident that Mattie loved the Lord and she was strong in her faith. She was a longtime active member of Northcrest Church of Christ.
