Remembering Steve Matheson

We are profoundly sad to report the death of Steve Matheson, husband of Karen and a great friend to all of us at Quilts Beyond Borders.   Steve passed away on May 30 in Connecticut.

Steve first became involved with QBB when Karen joined our team in 2014, and he worked with us in our fundraising booth at the IQF in Houston in 2015 – 2017.  A couple of years ago he told Karen he’d like to be even more involved, and we elected him to serve on our Executive Board as our Co-Treasurer.

Steve had an impressive business background which he brought to QBB, contributing some different ideas for some of our challenges.  He dragged us kicking and screaming into using the square to accept credit cards in our booth in 2017, which had terrific results.   He also had a wicked, wonderful and sometimes goofy sense of humor which was such an asset to the team during occasions when we felt over-stretched and over-stressed.  And somewhere along the way, Steve even became a longarmer.

Steve was a wonderful, accomplished, generous and humble man, beloved by everyone he met. His obituary can be read at:—simsbury/stephen-matheson/3528014/

A devoted husband and father to his wife, Karen, and their daughters Amy and Julie, Steve will be greatly missed by all of us.
