In Loving Memory of Mattie Easter Tracy Lewis
December 3, 1913 - September 4, 2003

Mattie Easter Tracy was born in Farmers Branch in 1913. She married Garnia McNab Lewis in 1930. These two sixteen year olds had tremendous faith and determination. Together they raised 5 children, but Mattie was like a mother to many others during her lifetime. She and Garnia lived in Farmers Branch where they were active for many years in the First Baptist church and other Baptist churches. In 1971, they moved to Little Elm and became active in the First Baptist Church there. Mattie taught Sunday School for most of her adult life. She read the Bible religiously and maintained a strong faith in God.

Special memories of Mattie--Mama--Granny--come to mind:
- a warm and loving smile
- a generous hug and kiss
- an understanding listener
- her beautiful white hair
- quoting scripture and Bible passages
- the best fruit cobblers and fruitcake
- saying "Come on in and stay a while."
- knowing just what you needed
- vegetables, yummy with bacon grease
And the list could go on and on. Mattie gently guided and led family and friends, and she always provided a "safe harbor" in any storm.
Mattie was loved by many. Even though she will be missed greatly, she will live on in our hearts and minds.
