Mother Mattie Caples was born June 17, 1931 in Scott County, Mississippi, to Otha and Stella Amos. She was the second child born to their union, she was preceded in death by her parents, brothers George, Gene, GC, & Otha Jr. Amos, Sisters Gloria, Eula Amos, & Lula (Brownie) Phillips, Sons Edward Jr & Theoda (Ted) Grandson Ronald Calvert.
Mother was a loving soul and always helped anyone she could. She loved the Most High and her church family dearly until the end. She was a hard worker all her life as she shared her life with us. She and her older brother worked in the fields of Mississippi at a very young age and worked until she retired. She worked for several years as a welder at Wirecraft in Chicago until she was hired by Caterpillar in Joliet.
But Mattie was most of all a lover of family and the Best mother in the world, her family always came first. We as children spent most holidays, birthdays and just any weekend together where she cooked, and my my my she could cook, all our favorite meals. Family came, all the Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and friends that lived in Chicagoland and we would have a great time together. I'm sure we all remember her cinnamon rolls.
At this time I'd like to give honor to her sister Katie Hall a very special Aunt who I never remember not being a major part of our lives she passed on March 31, 2020 at Provena St Joes Hospital in Joliet, IL during this Covid 19 pandemic and we never had the chance to really tell her goodbye, so at this time we say rest in heaven my dear Aunt you will be sorely missed, we all love you! She leaves to cherish her memory her children Jantyre Panchesin, Eugene & Keith Hall, Grandchildren, Wilfred Jones, Jennae Hall, Kaitlyn Eaton and all family above.
Mattie Caples died July 16, 2020 at her home in Joliet, Illinois.
