Barbara L. Mattison, age 86, passed away Monday, June 25, 2018, in Spring Valley, WI. Barbara was born January 1, 1932, the daughter of Carl and Bernice (Lau) Ninneman. On April 19, 1952, she was united in marriage to Jack Dale Mattison at the United States Army installation at Camp Polk, Louisianna. Their union was blessed with four children: Connie, Mark, Tammy, and Adam.

Barbara was an excellent homemaker and spent countless hours in her various gardens.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Charles (Hollyce) Ninneman; brother-in-law, Gerald Falde; son-in-law, Orlin Anderson.
