Sherry Lynne Burke Mattson, 64, was a loving caregiver who left this world June 12, 2022, after her courageous battle with cancer. She will be honored at a luncheon in Tucson, Arizona, and one in DeLand at a later date.
Sherry Lynne was born April 14, 1958, in Dayton, Ohio, to Janet Burke Ferris and David Burke.
At age 22, she graduated from Miami Valley Nursing School, and moved with her husband to Tucson.
For 37 years, she was an ICU pediatric nurse at Tucson Medical Center, helping save many lives and nurturing many friendships.
She moved to DeLand after retirement, and enjoyed the beach, boating, going to plays, and swimming in DeLeon Springs and Blue Spring.
Sherry Lynne is survived by son David Mattson; sister Diane Burke Stout (David); mother-in-law Lulu Mattson; sister-in-law Judy Palmer (Joe); brother-in-law Curtiss Mattson; aunt Michelle McQuiston; and nephew Shawn Stout.
She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. Now she is in God's loving arms.
