Elizabeth (Libby) Robertson Mattingly

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Elizabeth (Libby) Robertson Mattingly passed away on December 4, 2013. Libby was born on July 12, 1921 in Breckinridge County, Ky to the late Emma Moorman and William James Robertson. Following graduation from Western Ky State College, Libby taught school in Breckinridge County. Following her marriage in 1946, Libby and her husband Jack Mattingly moved to Lexington where they lived the remainder of their lives.

Libby was a member of Christ Church Cathedral in Lexington for more than fifty years. During earlier years, she served as Director of the Altar Guild and she and Jack served in other leadership roles at Christ Church Episcopal.

For many years, Libby was very involved in charitable and community service organizations. She served for many years on the Fayette County Children's Bureau Executive Board. She also served many years on the Urban-County Social Services Advisory Board. As a member of these boards, Libby actively participated in the formation of several programs for dependent and delinquent children. In 1976, Libby received an award from the Ky Council on Crime and Delinquency for her significant contributions that ultimately led to the establishment of St. Andrews House for ex-offenders. Libby served as chair of the board of directors for St. Andrews House until 2010. She was also a member of the Lexington–Captain John McKinley Chapter of the DAR through her patriot ancestor Colonel John Green, 10th Virginia Volunteers

Libby was preceded in death by a daughter (Barbara Mattingly), her husband (Jack Mattingly) and a brother (Joe Moorman Robertson). She is survived by a nephew, William J. Robertson (Faith), Texas, two nieces: Sally Castlen (Bruce), Lexington, and Susan Robertson (William Schrock), and several great nieces and nephews.

Additional survivors include several beloved cousins on the Moorman and Robertson sides of her family. Other survivors include her cousins-in-law E. Wayne and Linda Bussell.

Libby leaves a host of devoted friends, especially Carolyn and Vic Gago, Helen and Jim Pope and George and Tracy Robinson.

Visitation will be at Christ Church Cathedral, 166 Market St., Lexington, at 11:30 a.m. on Monday, December 9, 2013, to be followed by the funeral service at 1 p.m. Burial will be in the Lexington Cemetery.

Pallbearers will be Dan Breeden, E. Wayne Bussell, Timothy Cone, Vic Gago, Jim McGary, and Ron Wheeler. Honorary pallbearers will be Bruce Castlen, Franklin Hoopes, Mike Moorman, Jim Pope, and George Robinson.
