Life Story / Obituary


Margaret Elizabeth Matter, “Muncie”, age 87, passed away Friday, March 31, at St. Monica’s Senior Living after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. She was born in Racine, September 18, 1935, daughter of the late Julius and Mary (Nee:Kinik) Silvasi.

Muncie graduated from St. Catherines High School “Class of 1953”. On October 16, 1954, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, she was united in marriage to Thomas H. Matter and they were blessed with 56 years together before Tom passed January 17, 2011. While Muncie’s passion was staying at home taking care of her family, she also worked at Kordendick’s Hardware Store from 1970 to 1983 in the Toy Department. She was a member of St Paul the Apostle Catholic Church and was also a member of The Catholic Women’s Club. She was a terrific homemaker who enjoyed working in the yard and flower garden. She also enjoyed her monthly game of dominos with friends. Above all she treasured time spent with her family. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother who will be dearly missed.

Surviving are her children, Sue (Ed) Agnew, Thomas M. (Kathleen) Matter, all of Racine; grandchildren, Brad (Diana) Agnew of Excelsior, MN, Stefanie (Chris) Morgan of Kohler, WI, Katrina (Mike) Tucker of Burlington, WI; 6 great-grandchildren; in-laws, Marilyn (Neil) Loomis, Dennis (Linda) Matter, and Don Christoff; nieces, nephews, and many dear friends. In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by siblings, Steve Silvasi, Julius Silvasi and Marian Reff; niece, Barbara Silvasi; nephews, Russell Reff Jr, Dennis Reff, Steve Silvasi Jr. and Gregg Matter; brothers- in-law, Russel Reff Sr. and Bernie Matter; sisters-in-law, Dorothy Silvasi, Nancy Silvasi, Joan Matter and Barbra Christoff.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church, 6400 Spring Street, April 22, 2023, 10:30 am with Rev. Allen Bratkowski officiating. Entombment will follow at Holy Cross Garden Mausoleum. Relatives and friends are welcome to meet with the family for visitation, Saturday, 9:30 am until time of Mass at the church. Memorials to Alzheimer’s Association or Hospice Alliance of Kenosha would be appreciated.

The family wishes to extend a special thank you to Michelle, Sr. Vineeta and all the staff at St. Monica’s Memory Care for providing Muncie with safe and compassionate care along with Cindy, Katie and Jessica of Hospice Alliance of Kenosha.
