Nina Mathis, 93, passed away peacefully on Sunday March 26, 2023, at the Wetumpka Health and Rehabilitation Center.
Born in Weoka, Alabama in 1929, Nina was the daughter of William and Mary Lamberth. Early in her adult life she moved to Union Springs, Alabama where she and her husband, Frank Law (deceased), raised four children.
After she raised her children she went back to school at Troy University and earned her LPN degree.
Later she moved to the Montgomery area where she lived until she entered the Wetumpka Health and Rehabilitation center for more intensive nursing care.
Nina became a Christian early in her life and had a part in bringing other members of her family to the truth. Wherever she resided she associated herself with a local congregation of the Church of Christ and attended faithfully to the extent that her health allowed. She dedicated herself to living a life of service. She loved to cook and very few visiting preachers in those early days can say they did not enjoy a good southern meal at her table. Some would say her cornbread was legendary. Even as she became limited by age, she still eagerly sought to be of help to others in any way that she could.
Nina is survived by her children, Edward Law, Charles Law, Berta Jordan, and Rachel Cunningham, her sisters, Opal Sullivan, Mary Glenn, and Ruth Bennett. She was preceded in death by one sister, Dot Hines. In addition, Nina is survived by five grandchildren and several great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. She left indelible imprints as a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother on the lives of family members, both close and extended. Also, she will be lovingly remembered by her friends, those she helped, and by her church family.
A memorial service will be held on April 1, 2023, at Gassett Funeral Home, 204 East Charles Ave. Wetumpka, Alabama. Family visit will be at 12:30 pm, open visitation for family and friends at 1pm and the funeral at 2pm followed by a graveside service.
Pallbearers will be Bart Jordan, Charles Inge, Brandon Jordan, George Lasher, Jamie Parker, and Noah Patterson. Honorary pallbearers will be Jennifer Patterson, Shannon Parker, and Betsy Parker.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to your favorite charity.
