January 16, 2017

Sherlynn L. "Sherry" Mattison, 65 of Elk Mound died peacefully at home January 16, 2017 after a 15-month battle with cancer, under the care of Mayo Clinic Hospice.

Sherry was born November 5, 1951 in Milwaukee, WI to Lucille and Wayne Blaeske, and graduated class of 1969 from Brookfield East High School. She was united in marriage to John Mattison on September 15, 1979 at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Menomonie, WI.

Sherry's career was centered around various accounting related fields of work. She went on to further her education at UW-Stout, earning a Bachelor's degree in Accounting.  Sherry was an avid gardener and canner. She spent hours in the garden, always making sure each year was a bountiful harvest. She certainly had a green thumb as her flower gardens were full of variety and always growing!

Sherry is survived by her husband, John; sons: Joe (Kelly) of Baldwin and Ben (Brittany); precious granddaughter, Elliana of Colfax; and a brother, Wally (Audrey) Blaeske of Thiensville, WI. She is further survived by other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; in-laws, Charles & Marjourie Mattison; and siblings Donna Drea and Rick Blaeske.

Special thanks to Dr. Muslim and the staff at the Regional Cancer Center, the nurses of Mayo Clinic Hospice and Sacred Heart Hospital for their care and compassion.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. She will be dearly missed.

Chippewa Valley Cremation, Altoona is assisting the family with arrangements.
