October 18, 2004

Olive Ann Lykes Mattix, a volunteer and homemaker, died Oct. 11 of congestive heart failure at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda. The Potomac resident was 80.

Mrs. Mattix was known as Ann and was a longtime member of the Bethesda Women's Club. She had volunteered for more than 40 years at Suburban Hospital. She had reported for a volunteer shift about two weeks ago, only to be hospitalized with heart problems.

The daughter of an oilman, Mrs. Mattix - who was born Olive Ann Lykes in Buenos Aires, Argentina - spent her childhood traveling with her father to fields in Argentina, Texas and Oklahoma.

After graduating from high school in Pennsylvania, she attended the University of Maryland, where she met her husband, Paul R. Mattix Jr. He died last year.

A memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at St. Mark's Presbyterian Church in Rockville.

She is survived by her son, Paul R. Mattix III of Baltimore, and two grandchildren. A daughter, Pamela Ann Mattix, died in 1973.
