Seareatha Matetich

Cook Walden - Funerals & Cremations

Seareatha Carson Matetich This magnificent woman, born June 25, 1939, left this world suddenly and unexpectedly Saturday, February 18, 2006, while visiting Austin Texas. Her gracious and beautifully glamorous appearance is paled only by the radiance of her compassionate, joyful soul. All who met her remember the positive mark she left. She was preceded in death by her parents, Anna Sporn Carson and Nathan Carson, and her beloved sister Zynda Stein. Though we know she's in a better place, many will grieve her absence. Among those who relied so deeply on her wisdom, humor, and companionship are her husband, Louis Michael Matetich, Jr. their children Trudy Rowsey (Chuck), Monte Warden (Brandi), "Cash" Matetich (Crystal), Joe Matetich(Kirsten); their grandsons who called her Nonnie, Thomas, Van, Walker, Michael, Sam, Brooks, and Nathaniel. Her heart was filled with love for/from many relatives and friends she considered family. She gave to the world with every breath. She was even more wonderful in private than she was in public. She may not have been perfect, but no one has ever tried harder to achieve a perfect soul. Her only concern was the happiness of others. Our special thanks to DPS troopers, Veronica Guajardo and Sam Quinn for their tenderness and understanding. The family will receive friends from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., Tuesday, February 21, 2006 at Cook-Walden Funeral Home, 6100 North Lamar. Graveside services will be held at 3:00 p.m., Wednesday, February 22, 2006 at Beth Yeshurun Cemetery in Houston, Texas. In lieu of flowers, please show someone you love them.

Seareatha was a lovely, gracious, kind and energetic person - full of love and life. I will miss her smile and her laugh and most of all, her positive and upbeat outlook on life. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

Seareatha was a special person and we are so sad to hear of her death. In the late 1970's, when I was a freshman at UT, all alone in new city, it was wonderful to have a relative in town. All of the Oklahoma City cousins still remember how, many years ago, she hopped in the car with her grandsons and brought them to Galveston to visit us while we were on vacation. Our love to Trudy, Monte and Mike

I didn't know Seareatha well, but one of my most poignant memories of our 30th high school reunion was getting reacquainted with her. I thought, not only was she fun to be around, but that she had blossomed into the most beautiful woman in the room. Seareatha was such a joy. She will be so missed.

I had the chance to meet Seareatha a couple of times and I really enjoy her joie de vivre and kindness. She had many stories to tell and shined as a very positive and loving woman.
May she rest in peace.

Another friend just sent this notice to those of us who went to high school with Seareatha. When I saw the subject, I did not want to open the email message. I can't imagine that bubbly, happy, funny spirit gone from this earth. We are having our 50th high school reunion this April, and the one person I was looking forward to seeing especially was Seareatha. I had hoped that all the ROTC sponsors, and yes, she was one, could have our picture taken together. Seareatha did attend one of our reunions in the past, and I did get to visit with her and share old times.
I am glad to read that she had such a loving family and those wonderful grandsons. I know she added joy to all your lives and she will live in my memory and make me laugh still.

Love to all of you and God bless you in this time of grief and loss.

I knew Seareatha in high school. She was a vibrant, vivacious person and transferred her energy to everyone around her. She will be missed.

Trudy & Monte,
We will all miss you mother, she was a wonderful and special person. One of a kind. This is truly unreal, for an accident of this nature to happen to her. We will keep you both in our prayers. We love you,and remember, you are family.

Seareatha and I go a long way back. We were ROTC sponsors together and members of the Girls Booster Club at Milby High School. (Go, Buffs!) She was a ball of fire back then, just as she was later in life. She had so much enthusiasm and optimism. She could jitterbug as well as any girl in our school.

Our friendship continued at Sam Houston State. After all, we shared the same birthday (June 25), though she was a year younger. After graduation and marriage, we both ended up living relatively close to each other in southwest Austin. Our children were about the same ages, and we joined the Austin Newcomers together. Later we both divorced and remarried and drifted apart.

I remember Seareatha as a beautiful, caring woman, and not one to sit around and twiddle her thumbs. She was the first to step up to a need, and never willing to settle for status quo. Ferocious when it came to loving and caring for her kids. She left a mark on my world — a Buffalo gal in every sense of the word.

Seareatha was a kind and generous woman who loved her family above all. Even after moving to Europe, she went to extraordinary lengths to spend time with her children and grandchildren and I know they will miss her very much and treasure her memory. She was always very kind to our family and treated us as her family as well.

Mike, Trudy, Monte, Cash, & Joe, I am very sorry for your incredible loss. I know you and your children will always remember how much she loved you all.

Hugs, Susan (aka Aunt Tootoos to Van & Sam), Bill & Kate

Seareatha was a blessing to us all. We mourn your loss, but rejoice because the world is a much better place because she lived. Our hearts are breaking, but we are grateful that we had the opportunity to love and be loved by such an amazing woman. May God bless and comfort each and everyone of you, always.
Love,

My Mother was a really neat lady. I miss and love her very much but I am so grateful for her and the gift of the last time I saw her.
