In Memoriam: Ruth Matheny (1918-2018), longtime TCT editor


On behalf of the editorial staff at Today’s Catholic Teacher and the Bayard family of publications, I request prayers for the peaceful repose of the soul of longtime TCT editor Ruth Matheny, who passed away December 26, 2018, at the age of 100.

Mrs. Matheny was the editor-in-chief of TCT for twenty-five years, nearly half of the magazine’s history. Prior to that, she was a teacher in both the USA and South America, as well as a textbook editor. Read more about Mrs. Matheny’s life and career.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
