Mattie Griffin Corn, 89, of Hendersonville, passed peacefully into her new life in Heaven to join precious loved ones waiting for her early Tuesday morning, June 28, 2011 after a brief illness. She was a resident of Pine Park Retirement Inn. She was born in Travelers Rest, SC to the late Isaac Bogan and Angie Ward Griffin. She was also preceded in death by her daughter, Judith Lynn Moore; sisters, Edna McLean and Geneva Tankersley; brothers, Earl, Carl, and J. T. Griffin.

She was a loving and faithful wife to her devoted husband of 70 wonderful years, Arthur Corn. Her surviving daughters, Sherrill Elaine Wunderlich of Hendersonville and Patricia Ann Goins of Flat Rock are now commending her care to their sweet, waiting sister. Her adoring grandchildren, who will miss her so dearly, are Terry Wunderlich, Greg Wunderlich, Jenny Wunderlich-Prada, Arthur Calloway, Scott Matthews and Angela Byrd. Her great-grandchildren, who so filled her with delight and joy, are Lydia, Penelope, Ellie, Will, Shawn, Taylor and Kelsea. Also surviving are her in-laws, Walter and Kitty Corn of Arden, and Jewel Brooks of Hendersonville whose endless support is so appreciated by the entire family. She will also be sorely missed by her many nieces and nephews.

A celebration of her life and legacy of sweetness will be at 2:00pm on Saturday, July 2, 2011 at Forest Lawn Funeral Home Chapel with the Reverend Harold McKinnish officiating. The family will receive friends 12:30-2:00pm in the chapel. Memorial contributions may be made to Four Seasons Compassion for Life, 571 S. Allen Rd., Flat Rock, NC 28731.

Mr Corn and Pat,

Although I only knew Ms Corn for a short time, the gentleness of her spirit was clear. Even stressed by illness, she maintained a sweet dignity. She was a truly great lady.

The days ahead will be difficult for you both. Please know you are in my prayers.

Dear Pat and Family,

Our thoughts and prayers have been with you. In our short time of knowing Ms Mattie she touched it with laughter, humor, caring and respect. I could not have had a better roommate. Now praise the Lord she is roommates with Him. I have missed her every day I have been away from there.

Art you must be the sweetest husband God has ever created. Your love, devotion, and care for your sweet wife was more geniune than I have ever seen before. Take care all of you that I met and didn’t meet. I do love you all and especially Ms Mattie.

Mr. Corn, Sherry, and Pat, Tom and I tried to come to Mrs. Corn’s service today. We got tied up in a traffic jam on I-26 for several hrs. I am so sorry for your loss. The Corns were such a special part of my teenage years and I think of you often.

Pat, Sherry and Art,

Many years have passed but I still have very fond memories of Mattie and the entire family. She always made everyone feel special and there was nothing she loved more than doing things for her family. Everyone in heaven will have a new basket. A beautiful lady.

With Deepest Sympathy, John
