LeAnne K. Mattison
LeAnne Kay Mattison, 86, was called home by her Lord and Savior on February 4, 2021.
LeAnne was born June 18, 1934 in Lamberton, MN. She had a large family of eight siblings. Her mother who was a church organist instilled in her a love for music which she enjoyed her entire life. LeAnne graduated from Lamberton High School in 1950. On November 22, 1952, she married Ken Mattison in Lamberton. They lived in Virginia, MN, Hibbing, MN and Rochester, MN until 1965 when they moved to Rock Dell, MN. In 1968, they moved to a farm near Rock Dell where they farmed until Ken passed away in 2002. LeAnne was a bookkeeper at the Rock Dell Creamery for 30 years. She stayed on the family farm until 2017 when she moved to Rochester.
LeAnne enjoyed singing and playing the piano all throughout her life. She sang in the church choir, cantatas, community choir and at the Eagles Cancer telethon. LeAnne was also actively involved in many church activities including: Sunday School Teacher, Ladies Aid, VBS Teacher, Lutefisk Suppers and pot lucks. LeAnne also enjoyed reading, word searches and working in her garden on the farm. LeAnne’s family was her pride and joy. Whether she was cooking a Christmas feast, attending her children’s school events, playing with her grandchildren or simply going for a quiet ride in the country, she always made you feel loved. LeAnne always had a positive attitude and a sense of humor throughout her life. Above all, LeAnne was a strong Christian woman with a deep faith in her Lord.
LeAnne is survived by her children, Brad (Joliene) Mattison of Rock Dell, Brian Mattison of Rock Dell, Brenda Mattison of Byron, Brent (Myrna) of Rochester; five grandchildren, Seth (Kristen) Mattison, Katie Bundgaard, Jessica (Jared) Heldt, John and Josh Mattison; four great-grandchildren, Caydence and Cameron Bundgaard, Jack and Vivian Heldt; siblings, Steven Werner and Barbara Meteer.
LeAnne was preceded in death by her parents, Leonard and Adele Werner; husband, Ken; sons, Michael and infant son; brothers, George, Jimmy, Robert, Dennis, David Werner and sister, Jean Spitzer.
Blessed be her memory.
The family wishes to thank the staff at River Bend Memory Care and Mayo Hospice for all their loving care and kindness given to LeAnne.

Sorry to hear about your mom. I have many fond memories of spending time with your parents in the 70s. Of course Rex remembers Kenny always having the coffee ready when he arrived at the storeroom when they worked for the telephone company. No matter what the circumstances, it is always hard to lose a parent. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. Betty Manion
My sincere condolences to the Mattison family with LeAnnes passing. Some of my fondness memories of childhood was at the Mattison family farm (spending time with Brent and Brenda) that I will always cherish. LeAnne was there for me when my mother was ill and I will always remember her for that.
The world is less empty now. R.I.P. LeAnne
My thoughts and prayers to the Mattison family.
My dad (Jim Christenson) hauled milk to Rock Dell Creamery for many years. I accompanied him often and on occasion wonderful lady that would give me an ice cream drumstick.
Yep, it was Ms. Mattison. What a wonderful friendly person
Who knew later in life I would go to school with Joleen. Wonderful country people in a small world ❤
Our heartfelt sympathies to all the family in the passing of your Mom, Grrandma. Her beautiful soul touched our lives. Prayers for comfort.
Our prayers and thoughts are with the family during this difficult time. We feel blessed to have known such a beautiful woman of God. She will be dearly missed by so many. May God's presence give you peace and comfort at this time.

We are so sorry to hear of LeAnne‘s passing. Our parents, Jerry and Kathy Dashow were lifelong friends of Ken and LeAnne. Dad worked with Ken at Northwestern Bell telephone. Mom and LeAnne became fast friends with much in common as they were Mothers to many young children. My siblings and I have so many fond memories of playing with the Mattison kids when young, and as adults meeting at the cemetery on Memorial Day to honor Ken by sharing so many stories. We know that LeAnne is now enjoying herself as she reunites with Ken. May God Bless all of you as you mourn the passing of your wonderful Mother.
Love, The Dashow “kids”.
