Donna Ovelia Mathis

May 7, 1960 — May 29, 2023


Donna Ovelia Mathis, 63, of Cornelius, passed away on Monday, May 29, 2023. She was born in Polk County, Georgia on May 7, 1960, the daughter of the late Elouise Mosley Mathis. In addition to her mother, she was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, J.W. and Beatrice Ovelia Mosley; and great niece, Alydia Daniel.

Donna loved her career as a massage therapist and enjoyed spending time with the wonderful clients and associates she met in North Carolina. She had a fondness for cars and it was often said that cars and music were her love language. She also enjoyed traveling, especially road trips.
