Judy Whelan: Thank you, Stellene and Butch

October 12, 2018


Havasu has recently lost two of its earliest and most influential citizens. Stellene Matzdorff came here early on because her husband was interested in real estate. Butch Wood came as a teenager to help out in an early fishing camp on the Lake. Fortunately, both stayed to help with the growth of our town.

Stellene and Butch spent their lives guiding the development of Lake Havasu City. They were involved with all aspects of the City as it grew. Now it is often said of Havasu, “This is a most generous town-you just need to ask and someone will help!” There can’t be a better legacy for Stellene and Butch.
