Geraldine “Dolly” Marie Mattson, 82, passed away on Wednesday April 17, 2024 at Good Shepherd Health Center in Mason City, IA.

Dolly was born on September 21, 1941 in Winona, MN, the daughter of Vernon and Helen (Plachecki) Hummel. She grew up in the Minneapolis area where her daughter Ruth Blaisdell was born. Later she met her soon to be husband Dale Mattson. On February 20,1965 Dolly and Dale were united in marriage in St. Paul, MN. From this union three sons were born, Tim Mattson, Chris Mattson and Paul Mattson.

Dolly’s heart and soul were her children and grandchildren, she enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, making those around her laugh. When she wasn’t with her family she enjoyed playing bingo, watching the “Golden Girls” and the Hawkeyes basketball games.

She was refreshingly honest, never afraid to speak her mind or stand up for what she believed in. With her spunky and feisty spirit, Dolly left a mark on everyone she met. She loved her sweets but was also an amazing cook, every dish was her specialty, especially her potato salad. Dolly would show her caring personality in her donation to Catholic charities when she could.

Those left to cherish Dolly’s memory are her daughter Ruth (Rodney) Blaisdell; sons Timothy Mattson and Christopher (Melissa) Mattson; niece Brenda Hummel; grandchildren Mackenzie (Jeremy) Kostelecky, Ashley Mattson, Jordan Mattson, Riley Mattson, and Tjayden Runge; former daughter-in-law Tracy Mattson and many extended friends and family.

Dolly is preceded in death by her husband Dale Mattson; son Paul Mattson and parents Vernon and Helen.
