Christina R. “Christy” Mathis

November 22, 1968 ‒ February 24, 2020

Delaware, Ohio

Christina R. “Christy” Mathis, 51, of Delaware joined the presence of her Heavenly Father suddenly on Monday, February 24, 2020. She will continue to bless others by her desire to be an organ donor through Lifeline of Ohio.

She was born on November 22, 1968 in Washington, NC to Jean (Wallace) Baldwin of Greenville, NC and the late John Whitley. Although she was first and foremost a mother and wife, she also worked as office manager for Carlisle Masonry.

A woman of deep and abiding faith, she was a member of Grace Point Community Church and was extremely active in the women’s ministry. Described as being a living testament of Christ, she was happiest when touching lives by being His disciple.

Happy and outgoing, she was both generous and unpredictable. Honest to a fault, she possessed a spontaneous and unbridled personality. She was a member of the Gulf Coast Skimmers Water Ski Club and the Christian Sports Bike Association. Silly, fun, and loving, Christy was always reliable and forever selfless in all that she undertook.

Her sunny personality spilled over into every detail of her life, even the “Honey-Do” list. Christy treasured time spent laughing, being an example of Christ, and spending time with her family.

In addition to her mother, she is survived by her beloved husband of 27 years, John Mathis, who absolutely caught her eye upon their first encounter; their adored daughters: Ashley Mathis, of Georgetown, KY, and her fiancé, Zach Pollard, of Circleville, OH, and Elizabeth “Lizzi” and Adam Baird, of Johnson City, TN; brothers: Richard and Patti Whitley of Greenville, NC, John and Elaine Whitley of Wilmington, NC, and David and Beverly Whitley of Claremore, OK; sisters: Kay Myers of Youngsville, NC, and Josie and Tom Stec of Bel Air, MD; parents-in-law: John and Florence Mathis of Avon Park, FL; sister-in-law: Tina and Bob Barnott, of Middleburg, FL; and numerous nieces, nephews, and other extended family.

She was preceded in death by her father, brother Greg Whitley, and brother-in-law John Myers.

A gathering of friends and family will take place from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4th, at Grace Point Community Church, 2393 Peachblow Rd., Lewis Center, OH, 43035. A service celebrating her life will follow at 6:30 p.m., led by Pastor Terry Lewis. A reception will immediately follow the services at the church. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center in Delaware.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Grace Point Community Church.
