Sylvia Dawn Mattson

WELLS/SACO – Sylvia Dawn Mattson, 68, passed away peacefully on May 5, 2022 at Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough. She was born on Jan. 23, 1954, a daughter to Theodore and Jane (Burnham) Mattson.

Sylvia was a joy to everyone she met. She showed love to all, even people she didn’t know. She especially loved Donny Osmond. 1 Corinthians, 13 put words to how Sylvia was as a person, “Love is patient, love is kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

She was predeceased by her parents. She is survived by her sisters, Linda Horr of Standish, Cynthia Thurston of Saco; nephew, Michael Beckwith of Saco; aunts, Jean Reynolds of Baldwin and Judy Ridlon of Dexter.

The family would like to thank Gosnell Memorial Hospice House and the Morrison Center for the wonderful care given. A special thanks to Alex Massa and PSL Strive for all of the help, love and support that was given in the past few years.
