Howard Matthews, Lindsey Wilson College, (1914-2014)
He was a native of Barren County, KY and taught Bible and Religion at Lindsey Wilson College for 18 years. In Columbia he and his wife Eula Mae were treasured members of the Columbia United Methodist and were much loved members of the Lindsey Wilson College Community, and are very warmly remembered by all they met while here. Howard Matthews is quoted as saying, "I've had many experiences. Most of them good.'
Howard Matthews, 99, Lincoln, NE formerly Kentucky, lived until March 26, 2014. He was born in Glasgow, Ky. November 25, 1914.
A private family memorial will be held at a later time.
In 1938 he graduated from Asbury College, Wilmore, Ky., joined the Louisville Conference as a Methodist minister and married his college sweetheart, Eula Mae Richardson.
During his 43 years as a minister he served as a District Superintendent, as Executive Secretary of the Board of Education of the Louisville Conference and was on the Board of Trustees of Kentucky Wesleyan College.
Howard's leadership was instrumental in the development of Camp Loucon, a Methodist youth camp, where he and Eula Mae spent many happy years working and playing.
After retiring from the ministry he taught Bible and Religion for 18 years at Lindsey Wilson College. After Eula Mae died, Howard moved to Lincoln to be near family.
In his later years he enjoyed studying genealogy, teaching an adult Sunday School class at Christ United Methodist Church and pursuing his passion for reading.
He is survived by a daughter, Judy Crockett, a son, David, two grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.
He is quoted as saying, "I've had many experiences. Most of them good."
Memorials to Camp Loucon, 8044 Anneta Road, Leitchfield, Kentucky 42754.
