About Us

The idea of owning a funeral home and serving families at-need began in the mind of Crystal Matthews shortly after the year, 2000, commenced.  After graduating from Tarboro High School, Crystal decided to pursue her passion.  She began her career as a Licensed Funeral Director serving the community with dignity, compassion, and excellence in 2005.  As time progressed, Crystal begin to consider a vision of her own: launching a funeral home.

Crystal consulted with two local pastors: Irv Glenn, II and Bishop Shelton Daniel about bringing her dream of owning a mortuary to fruition.  The three collaborated and combined their experience, extensive knowledge of community needs, and their resources ultimately culminating in establishment of Matthews Family Mortuary located at 3240 Zebulon Road, Rocky Mount, North Carolina. 

October 16, 2017, the North Carolina Board of Funeral Service inspected Matthews Family Mortuary and officially opened the funeral home for operation.  That same night, a new employee orientation/dinner was held at Greater Joy Church on Anderson Street.  In November 2017, Reverend Dr. James R. Davis, pastor of Bread of Life Christian Church and Community Center in Rocky Mount, North Carolina paid Crystal a visit.  He was looking for a funeral home to serve his family who were in need at the time.  His nephew, Bobby Peele, had passed.  After consulting with his wife, Pastor and Lady Davis gave us the opportunity to serve their family.  The Davis & Peele Family would become the first family to ever to be served by Matthews Family Mortuary.
