Margaret E. Mathews left this earth peacefully on the evening of June 14, 2020 in Cleveland Ohio. She was 73 years old. Her young life was spent in Akron, Ohio until her groom, Harry Mathews, whisked her away to Kalamazoo, Michigan. Margaret loved to laugh, could play a mean hand of Spades, and could drink you under the table...coffee that is. She is preceded in death by her parents Robert and Delores Junius, her siblings Richard Powell, Cheryl Junius and Letitia Franklin, her daughter Lena Mathews, and her grandchildren Star and Stan Henderson. She leaves to cherish her memory her children Alia, Syncerae, Harry II (Myneke), Sheila, and Shelly (Stephen), chosen-child Jackie Smith, siblings Robert Junius and Pauline Paige, her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.
