She was raised in Gary, Indiana where she attended local schools and graduated from Emerson High School. She moved with her family to Delhi, California in the late 1940’s. She met the love of her life, Samuel Matson, and they were married and moved to Turlock in 1951. They enjoyed many happy years together supporting their family and community until Sam’s death in 1993. She lived independently in Turlock, and recently moved to Paramount Court, also in Turlock.
Anne Matson was dedicated to her church family; she truly enjoyed the women’s Bible study classes, and sharing time with friends there. Another passion of Anne’s was entertaining her family and friends.
