A visitation is planned for Monday, April 29, from 6 – 8 p.m. and a funeral service for Tuesday, April 30 at 11 a.m. at Coble Ward-Smith, Oleander Chapel with interment will follow at Wayne Memorial Park in Goldsboro, N.C. for  Brenda Matthews, 58, of Wilmington, who passed away on Friday, April 26.

She lived everyday for the purpose of spreading Jesus’ love to others. When she wasn't ministering in the women's prisons through Reaching Hearts Women's Ministry, or planning an upcoming outreach, she loved spending time with her family and going to lunch with friends.

Matthews was born May 15, 1954 in Goldsboro, N.C. to Otis and Mavis Jones. She is survived by her husband, Allan Matthews; daughter, Hannah and husband Ryan Chitwood of Wilmington; her mother Mavis Jones; brother Otis and wife Yvonne Jones; nephew Scott and wife Vanessa Jones, and niece Lisa Jones of Knoxville, Tenn. She also leaves behind her precious Maltese, Charley.

She told her family when the time came that she left this world for another that she wanted her funeral to be a celebration of her life. In honor of her, please forgo all black and wear brightly colored attire. In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to Reaching Hearts Women's Outreach at 5006 Carleton Drive, Unit 92, Wilmington, N.C. 28403.
