Sandra (Punky) Ellegard Mattison
A grand lady who passed away February 5th 2016. Born in Springfield, IL and a graduate of the University of Illinois, Punky raised her two loving children Rebecca (Michael) D'Amato and Mark (Lisa) Ellegard with first husband Jack Ellegard in the Milwaukee area. After his passing she found a wonderful, devoted husband in Phil Mattison to whom she was married for 22 years. Punky and Phil lived on Lake Delavan where she welcomed his daughters, Wendy (Kevin) Luttrell, Jana (Tedd) Cain and Julie (David) Navin into her life. Punky was an avid gardener and a lover of the arts. She was a longtime member of the Milwaukee Art Museum Garden Club and Delavan Lake Garden Club. She loved to entertain and enjoyed life on the lake. She was a tremendous role model to her grandchildren- Jack, Liliana and Nicolas D'Amato and Madeleine, Ava and Mimi Ellegard as well as Jessica and Ian Luttrell, Mattison and Connor Cain and Josh and Kyle Navin. Punky found great joy in life and that joy will be missed by all who knew her.
A Memorial Celebration will take place Friday, February 12, 2016 at Lake Lawn Resort, Delavan, WI, from 1:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M., in the Geneva Club room.
