Kathleen “Kathy” Marie (Dwyer) Matesic, 79, of Martins Ferry died Friday, October 13, 2023, at Wheeling Hospital surrounded by her children. She was born May 14, 1944, in Pittsburgh, PA. She was preceded in death by her loving husband Richard “Dick” Matesic, parents Jim & Isabel (Hicks) Dwyer, brothers Pat and Jack Dwyer.
Kathy was a devoted and loving caregiver to her husband after his stroke, a proud mother and grandmother to her 3 children and 6 grandchildren, and an accomplished businesswoman. She kept her sense of humor and made her family laugh until the bitter end.
