Sally Ann Matthews
February 7, 1945 – September 6, 2018
Sally Ann Matthews, of Middletown, DE, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, September 6, 2018, at the age of 73.
Sally was an active member of the Cornerstone United Methodist Church family, volunteering for the Angel Tree, Samaritan Purse shoeboxes, Cornerstone Care Ministry, Operation Hope, and Cornerstone Hospitality Team. She also enjoyed helping with church mailings, phone calls, etc.
Through Project Linus, Sally crocheted many blankets for the young patients at the A. I. DuPont Hospital for Children. Sally was also a diehard Phillies fan throughout her life!

Sally would like to thank all her angels at Cornerstone Church and Dynamic Therapy for their support, prayers, and friendship, and a special thank you to Dr. John Goodill, Pulmonologist and Director of Palliative Care, Christiana Care Hospital.
