Lottie Louise Mattheus Boedeker (Plainview)

December 19, 1938 — June 12, 2021

Lottie Louise Mattheus Boedeker (Plainview)

Lottie Louise Mattheus Boedeker was born December 19, 1938, to Leonard and Alpha Mattheus in Silverton, Texas. She left this world on a nonstop flight to Heaven June 12, 2021, surrounded by her family and the loving staff at Plainview Health Care Center. Lottie was born and raised on a farm near Silverton where she learned to work hard and cook fantastic food. She attended Silverton schools where she was proudly voted Football Queen in 1956. She married Werner Boedeker on September 20, 1957, and they moved to Plainview in 1974. They divorced in 1990 but not before they welcomed their four children together: the quiet and shy one Patricia, the good looking one Alfred, the favorite one Jimmy, and the spoiled one Regenia. Kids and cooking were Lottie’s life. She opened a home day care in 1975. Cody Teague and Lynx Ann Davis were the first of hundreds of children she helped raise, feed, love, and keep safe over the next forty plus years. Lottie never closed her doors or took a day off. She never refused a child because she knew their parents depended on her. Due to declining health, she closed her daycare in 2017. Will Able was her last baby that she helped raise. What a legacy of love created from Lynx all the way to Will. Lottie made a difference in so many lives. She was known for her cooking and baking. Her house was the lunch spot for the kids, the grandkids, and many of their friends. If you said you liked something, she made sure to make it for you at least twice. She absolutely loved to have the house full and the stomachs even fuller.

After a long-fought battle, Lottie gained her wings to walk and fly with the angels. Leaving behind to carry on her legacy are her four children, Patricia Chambers and husband Jerry Alvin, Alfred Boedeker and Jami, Jimmy Wayne and wife Tobi Boedeker, and Regenia Boedeker and David all of Plainview; her two brothers Ray Mattheus of Arkansas and Tim Mattheus and wife Diana of Silverton, Texas; eight precious grandchildren: Mattheu, Derrik, Colbie, Couper, Kaci, Dusti, Paxstyn, Sissy along with their spouses; a bonus granddaughter, Alexxa Lohn and a God Granddaughter Maranda Tucker. She also left behind 19, yes 19, even better great-grandchildren with number 20 on the way. She adored them and made sure each one was taken care of. Lastly, let us not forget her best friend, Betty Gonzales.

She is preceded in death by her parents and her older brother Delbert Mattheus of Salado, Texas. A very special Christopher Douglas whom she loved through his cancer battle.

A graveside service will be held 10:00 A.M. Friday, June 18, 2021 at Plainview Memorial Park with Rev. Kyle Brock and Steve Olson officiating. A visitation will be held Thursday from 6:00 to 8:00 P.M. at Kornerstone Funeral Directors in Plainview.

The family would like to give a very special thank you to the nurses, CNAs, and all of the staff at Plainview Health Care Center. The love they had for Lottie was undeniable. Any donations can be made to PAW PALS, P.O. Box 596, Hale Center, TX 79041 in honor of Lottie’s treasure of a pup Peanut.
