Mattson, Joannie (Maloney) Age 74, passed away on Thursday, November 26th. Growing up as a military child in the Navy she lived in many places but found her longtime home in Blaine, MN. She is a graduate of Roosevelt High School, worked for General Mills and she was everyone's "Betty Crocker" helper. In retirement, she & Tom enjoyed carving as members of the Blaine woodcarving club. She loved planting spring flowers, fall family road trips and Christmas decorating. We will miss all of her special touches, like sewing hidden Mickey's into her daughter's wedding dress, fur into Halloween costumes and how she remembered everyone's special day with a card. Preceded in death by parents John & Catty Maloney and brother-in law John Devins. Survived by her husband Tom; children John Mattson & Danielle (Greg) Jernberg; siblings Cathy (Dick) Bailey and Renee Devins; sister-in-law Judy Trest; grand-children Angellica, Almina, Tommy, Cody and Emma, great- grandchildren, nephews and nieces. A celebration of Joannie's life will be planned next year.
