Barbara "Bobbie" Matthews

October 17, 1941 ~ February 14, 2022 (age 80)


Barbara Hall "Bobbie" Matthews, 80, of Lake Toxaway, passed away on Monday, February 14, 2022. A native of Transylvania County, she was the daughter of the late Howard and Lucy Johnson Hall. In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her husband, Elmo Matthews, and her brother, Ray Von Hall.

A simple country girl at heart, Barbara loved life, loved her friends, and loved to laugh. She even loved to bear hunt.  She enjoyed playing jokes on her friends and truly cared for the people in her life.

The great joy of her life, however, was her family. Her daughter, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were the special stars that made her eyes sparkle.

Her loving survivors include her daughter Sherry Owen (Mack); grandchildren Danna Owen and Jason Owen (Amanda); and her great-granddaughter, Makayla Grace Owen; her brother Eddie Hall (Mabel), her sister, Brenda Stamey (Carroll) and her sister-in-law (partner-in-crime) Azilee Hall.

At Barbara’s request, burial will be private. Arrangements for a memorial service to honor her will be announced at a later date.
