Gloria Matheny

Gloria Jean Matheny, 72, of Hendersonville, Tenn., passed away peacefully in her home on March 20, 2013, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

Her generous heart and caring personality proved to us that her beauty was more than just on the outside. She was an example to all of us on how to live a Christian life with style and grace.

She was born in Mannington, on Feb. 25, 1941. to the late Harry C. and Doris Fluharty. This past June, she celebrated her 50th wedding anniversary with her high school sweetheart and loving husband, John David Matheny.

She is the mother of Scott Allen Matheny (Susan) and Michael Lee Matheny (Leanne); grandchildren, Abby Alex, Anna and Ashley Matheny and Sarah Beth and Emily Hudson; brother, Gary Fluharty (Brenda).

After attending Fairmont State, she and John moved to Tennessee where she taught physical education and coached girls’ basketball at Donelson High School. For many years she also taught at Lakeside and Nannie Berry Elementary until deciding to sell real estate. For almost 30 years she helped many of us in Hendersonville find the perfect home.

She was a member of the GFWC Hendersonville Woman’s Club and enjoyed volunteering for projects that gave back to the community. Gloria loved being with family and friends, spoiling her grandchildren and traveling.

The family would like to thank the supportive staff at Highpoint Hospice who provided comfort during last stages of Gloria’s illness and also the compassionate and dignified care given by Ramona Dickinson.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Greater Foundation of Woman’s Club (GFWC) Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 813, Hendersonville, TN 37075.

A Life Celebration Service was held on Saturday, March 23 in the chapel of Hendersonville Funeral Home, 353 Johnny Cash Parkway, Hendersonville, TN 37075, www.hendersonvillefh .com, 615-824-3855, with Pastor Ken Dye officiating.
