Our Beloved Günter Mathia

Günter and his family have been active with the Mathia – Matthia Family Organization for over 20 years. In 2004, Günter and his wife Elisabeth joined with us an a research trip to the Chojnice-Tuchola areas of Pomerania. We visited churches, studied old church books, visited with living cousins, and had a great time.

Gúnter went on to meet with our common ancestors on July 19, 2020. We will all dearly miss his noble soul being in our midst. We remember him always as helpful kind, gracious, generous, and unfailingly energetic. He wrote this poem in 1993:

As Long As the Feet Bear Up! by Günter Mathia
Auf Wiedersehen, Günter!
