Mattie Luvenia Stays

August 20, 1951 - March 16, 2020

Mattie Stays entered eternal rest on March 16, 2020 at the age of 68 years.

Before moving to Guttenberg and subsequently North Bergen, NJ, Mattie lived in Far Rockaway, NY. She was known for her fashion sense and owned a few clothing stores over the years. Mattie had a youthful spirit and she brought joy to everyone that knew her. She loved her family and she loved helping people. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, she would hand out two plates of dinner to the first homeless person she saw. She would also help organize the delivery of Christmas baskets to families in Guttenberg and North Bergen. She enjoyed working with the children in the Town of Guttenberg and often said during her illness that she wanted to get well so she could get back to her kids. 

Mattie was preceded in death by her father Eugene Moorer, her grandparents Jack and Mattie Pearse Sr., her brother Rammellzee and her special uncle Jack Pearse Jr. 

Mattie will be remembered by her precious children, Andrea Oliver (Ryan), Monique Stays and Dakota Stays, her mother Willo Moorer, her brother Kyle G. Piccirello, her grandson Dominique Oneil and her great grandson, Dominick Chase Oneil and a host of aunts, uncles, a niece, nephews, cousins, extended family and many special friends.

Visitation for Mattie will be on Saturday, March 21, 2020 from 2:00 - 6:00 pm at the funeral home.

Health Officials and the Governor of New Jersey have indicated that one way to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus is through uniformly attempting to limit public gathering such as viewing and funerals to less to 50 people. Our sympathies go out to all the families that have the additional burden of losing a love one at this time.

Private Committal.

The family would like to thank everyone for their love and support during this difficult time.
