Mattie lived most of her adult life in the Houston area with her husband of 67 years, Truman Gay, who preceded her in death February 4, 2008. There were very few of Mattie's friends and family who hadn't heard the story of how she and Truman met when she was 10 years old and lived across the road from one another. This tale was followed by how much she had loved "spoiling him rotten" ever since. Mattie had many fond memories of her years spent working at Lord Electric, as she did of her association with the Eastern Star, which lasted over five decades. Avid animal lovers, Mattie and Truman were devoted to their many dogs, cats and even opossums over the years. Mattie is preceded in death by her parents, James and Essie Broughton, a brother, Jimmy Broughton and a sister Minnie Minor, all of Pleasant Grove AL. Survivors include her daughter, Sylvia Bryan and husband James of Houston; sisters Linda Jordan and Mildred May of Pleasant Grove, AL; grandson Pat Tatum and wife Darlene of Houston; grandson James Matthew Bryan of Houston; and great-grandchildren Jamie Lee and Kelly Georgia Tatum of Houston.
