  • Temple Joann Mattice, 81, of Hamburg, died Aug. 6, 2013 at Grape Community Hospital in Hamburg. Temple Joann Robertson Mattice was born on Feb. 10, 1932 in Orrick, Mo., to W.L. and Pearl Robertson. She graduated from high school.
    She married Franklin F. Mattice; he preceded her Dec. 26, 2004.
    Jo worked in a variety of jobs. She can best be described as a "Jack of all trades" because of the numerous occupations that she worked in and around. She had a great love for motorcycles and animals — especially her dogs — but her family was her deepest love. She was a caring and giving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend and will be dearly missed.
    She is survived by her significant other and companion Joe Bento of Hamburg, IA; children: Pearl Joseph Arthur and wife Alice of Excelsior Springs, MO; Mary Georgeann Maddox and husband Steve of Excelsior Springs, MO; Catherine Jo Kately of Hamburg, IA; Frankie Johanna Irwin and husband Todd of Union, NE; 10 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren and 7 great-great grandchildren; one sister Mary Lou Robertson of Richmond, MO; other family and friends.
    In addition to her husband, Frank, she was preceded by siblings Junior, Allen and Margie, and grandson Justin.
    A Celebration of Life will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10, at the Free Methodist Church in Hamburg with Pastors Gail and Donna Woods officiating.
    Memorials may be given to KMA Radio in her memory.

    Rash-Gude Funeral Home in Hamburg is in charge of arrangements.
