Mattie Bell Cahoon, 88, went to be with her Lord and Savior in the early morning hours of January 16th, 2022. Mattie was the youngest daughter of William and Etha Hines. She was born in Virginia Beach on July 1st, 1933. 
Mattie was preceded in death by her loving husband Roger Cahoon Sr., parents, brother Blane Hines, sister Golda Hines, brother Jessie Hines, sister Madline Smith, sister Marion Lee Terry, and sister Mary Elizabeth Pittman. 
Mattie is survived by her children; Roger Cahoon Jr. (Connie) of Manns Harbor NC, Pam LeMaster (Clint) of Virginia Beach, and Connie Lowe (Asa) of Chesapeake, grandchildren; Joshua Cahoon, Caris Hill, Jordan Cahoon, Jennifer Young, Kayla Yeremin, Lauren Tuttle, Asa Lowe III, and Bradley Lowe, and 16 great grandchildren.
Mattie was a very Godly woman and was an active member of Heritage Church for more than 15 years. With the church, she loved serving and helping people in her community. One of her greatest treasures in life was working in her garden and doing yard work. Her absolute greatest joy in life, however, was baking for her grandchildren. Mattie was known for her sweet potato biscuits, and was always asked by her grandchildren to make her famous cakes. Her ham soup was also a staple of family gatherings.
A service to celebrate the wonderful life of Mattie will be held on January 19th at 12pm, with a visitation an hour prior. A graveside committal service will be held following the service at Colonial Grove Memorial Park. 
The family will return to the church for food and fellowship following the graveside service
