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.
