December 31, 1969 — January 28, 2016

READY-Mattie Lee Hughes Ready, age 96, of Trenton, S.C., passed away peacefully Thursday, January 28, 2016 at her residence, surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Aiken County on August 17, 1919. She was the daughter of the late James Hughes and Oceola Sullivan Woodward. She was a longtime and oldest member of Shiloh Baptist Church in Aiken. She was retired from Graniteville Company.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by sons, Marvin and Wyman Ready; a brother, four sisters and a grandson. She shall be greatly missed by all whose lives she touched during the 96 years that God granted her on this earth. Death cannot destroy precious memories, and she shall live on forever in the hearts of her many friends and loved ones. She has just made that much deserved transition to her new Heavenly home in a land of endless tomorrows, where the soul will never die and we will never have to say goodbye.
