Stephanie Ann Mattson

June 7, 2022 Newark, DE A Force to be Reckoned With

Stephanie Ann Mattson, age 63 of Newark, DE, passed away at home on Tuesday, June 7, 2022 while surrounded by her loving family.

Stephanie was the wife of William J. Mattson, with whom she shared nearly 50 years of marriage. The pair met at 16 years old and were together ever since.
Born 1958 in Chester, PA, Stephanie was the daughter of the late Archie Dale Vickers and the late Kay Henry Vickers.

Stephanie graduated from Avon Grove High School then attended Wilma Boyd Careers School, a flight school in Pittsburgh, PA.

After opening a daycare later in life, she found her true passion. For 35 years, she helped young children develop and grow into adults that would then entrust her with their children. Stephanie was a part of many families across generations and loved every second of it.

Stephanie treasured spending time with her family and adored her grandbabies. She enjoyed going to the beach and was a frequent visitor of Pottery Barn, where she loved to shop. Her family teases that Pottery Barn has lost their best customer.

Stephanie leaves behind a legacy of kindness, patience and love that will continue on in the lives and hearts of all who knew her; she was truly a force to be reckoned with.
In addition to her husband, William, Stephanie is survived by her daughters, Ashley Baker (James) and Nicole Patone (Mike); brothers, Archie Vickers, Kenny Vickers, Lonnie Vickers and Jack Vickers; her sister, Maryellen Vickers; and grandchildren, Camren and Sophia Baker.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two sisters, Kay DiFilippo and Donna Schneider.

  4. We moved to Harmony Hills when my kids were young. Not long mike met nicole and the rest was history . The Mattson’s and Patone’s became one big family. Stephanie treated mike like her own son. She will truly be so missed. My heart breaks for her family.
