MATHIES, Carla Ann (nee Schaus) – Obituary – Guelph
After a brief and valiant fight, Carla passed away on December 12, 2022, in her 82nd year. Carla is survived by her beloved husband of 25 years, Bob Matthies. The two made an incredible team, wherever one was, you were sure to see the other following closely behind.
Carla will be dearly missed by her three best friends, her daughters, Kim (Pete) Burgess, Cheryl (Mike) Carlo & Susan (Ralph) Hogg.
Stepmother to Lori & Kelly.
She will be forever remembered and loved by her three grandchildren, Robbie (Victoria) Carlo, Brett (Sarah) Carlo and Brianne (Cody) Brown (nee Hogg).
Carla had begun her journey as Great Grandma or GG as we called her, these little ones brought so much light and joy into the last few years of her life. GG will live on in the eyes of her three cherished great grandchildren, Thatcher Brown, Adelaide & Grayson Carlo.
Although Carla’s passing has left hearts broken down here on earth, her family finds peace in knowing she has been reunited in Heaven with her late grandson Bryce Hogg (2013) and her parents Jeanette & Carl Schaus.
Carla’s family would like to thank all the kind and compassionate nurses, staff & doctors who cared for her throughout her stay at Guelph General Hospital. A special thanks to Dr. Kotalik, Dr. hood and dr Hoey for working so hard to keep her comfortable.
To honor Carla’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A private family & friends beach service will be held in Grand Bend at a later date.
As expressions of sympathy, the family would greatly appreciate donations be made to a charity near and dear to Carla’s heart, Guelph-Wellington Women In Crisis. Arrangements entrusted to the Graham A. Giddy Funeral Home.
