Karen Sue “Susie” Godfrey Matheny, 71, of Pine Bluff, passed away in her sleep at home on October 5th, 2019. She was born in Flemington, WV on August 15, 1948, a daughter of the late Junior Burl Godfrey and Geraldine Mae (Jenkins) Godfrey.
She was also preceded in death by sister, Tracey Bailey of Lumberport; brother, Mark Godfrey of Conway, Ark; and grandson, Michael Lee Matheny.
Susie is survived by her husband of 53 years, Patrick Lee Matheny whom she married April 17, 1966; son Patrick Lee Matheny II and wife Patty of Wyatt; and a daughter, Kimberly Mae Matheny and companion Butch Drain of Fredericksburg, VA.
She is also survived by two grandsons, Phillip Creamer and companion Kelly Scyoc of Wallace and Shane and Lindsay Matheny of Wyatt; one granddaughter, Santana (Creamer) Hardy and husband Andrew of Haywood Junction; two great-granddaughters, Aubrey and Freya Matheny; six sisters, Carel Case of Tyler, TX; Debra Godfrey of Clarksburg; Bernadine Godfrey of Fairmont; Windy Williams and husband Delrico of Adamston; Candy Godfrey of Clarksburg; and Ginger Nestor and husband Hayden of Stonewood; three brothers, Richard Godfrey of Clarksburg; David Godfrey and companion Brad Cunningham of Newburg, OR and Brent Godfrey and wife Kelly of Bridgeport.
Susie was a member of the Pine Bluff Treasured Memories Club (Formally CEOS) with a 50 year pin. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother and enjoyed people. She would light up a room when she walked in and could walk in any circle, young or old, rich or poor, and fit right in. If you had ever met her, you’ll never forget her. Also, she had the distinction of having a Huey helicopter named after her in Vietnam. She has left a big void in the world, especially for this scribe. She will be deeply missed by family, friends, and all who knew her.
Family and friends are welcome to call from 2 pm to 8 pm, Wednesday, October 9, 2019 at the Perine Funeral Home, 1348 S. Pike St. Shinnston. A funeral service will be held at 11:00 am, Thursday, October 10, 2019 at the funeral home with Pastor Harry Holbert officiating. Interment will follow at the Pine Bluff Cemetery. Online condolences can be extended to the family at
The Perine Funeral Home is honored to serve the Matheny family.
