Mathews returned to Greenville in late 1942 and joined the American Red Cross in mid-1943. After two weeks of training in Washington, D.C., she was sent to work in a service club outside of London, England, near Essex. Two months laster she was sent to an air base in Norwich, England, where she remained through the summer of 1944. After another brief stint near Essex, Mathews transferred to an air base outside of Paris. In the spring of 1945, she was sent to a Clubmobile in Le Havre, France, and by August 1945 Mathews was stationed in Fulda, Germany. She remained in Fulda until March 1946.
Mathews returned to Greenville when she left the service and continued to work in the theater and for the United Fruit Company. She got married in 1951 and lived with her husband in New York until 1974 when they moved to Cedar Mountain, North Carolina.
