Vale Don Mathieson (OAM) St Mary’s Legend

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our Club legend, Don Mathieson (OAM) aged 97 years.
Don was a past President of the Geelong Football League (16 years) and past President of St Mary’s (27 years), but more importantly he was a friend and mentor to many people in and around football across the region.
Until a few weeks ago he was still a regular figure in our Clubrooms for games and Thursday night meals; sharing a drink with his oldest mates and stories with our young players.
Don will be sadly missed, he transcended generations of footballers and impacted our Club in immeasurable ways.
Our condolences are with Loretta, Catherine, Elizabeth, Donna, Bernard and their families.
The funeral for this much loved legend is Thursday 26 October at 1:30pm at St Mary’s Church. The wake will be held at St Mary’s Sporting Club afterwards.…/donald-mathieso…/funeral/
