Bernys Overlock Mattson Obituary

Bernys Overlock Mattson, 95, of New Gloucester died May 10 th after a long and fulfilling
life.
Born August 28, 1928 in Warren, Maine she is the daughter of Doris (Teague) and
Charles Overlock. She graduated from Warren High School in 1946, one of a class of
14.

Bernys held various jobs throughout her life from stay at home Mom, factory work,
business owner, retail sales to ultimately retiring from the mailroom at UNUM in 1992.

Throughout her life she was very active in the community as a volunteer you could
depend on. She was a 4H Leader when her oldest daughter belonged and a Girl Scout
Leader when her youngest daughter belonged. When someone needed a volunteer
she was always there. She was active with New Gloucester Food Pantry prior to
COVID.

Bernys was a member of the Order of Eastern Star for over 65 years holding roles as
high as Worthy Matron.

She was a very independent woman even mowing her lawn with her John Deere tractor
until she was 93. Additionally, she had many hobbies over the years such as rug
hooking, needlework, sewing, knitting, jigsaw puzzles, word searches and most recently
learning to crochet.

For the last three months, Bernys resided at Montello Heights in Lewiston and enjoyed
the new friends she made and the old friends that visited her. She especially enjoyed
playing Bingo.

She enjoyed rides in her 1924 Ford Model T that her husband restored and was driven
to her 90 th birthday celebration in it with a dear friend from her church chauffeuring her.

She was a devoted wife to her husband, Robert Mattson who she married on February
28, 1948 and devoted mother to her two daughters. She truly enjoyed being a
grandmother and great grandmother.

She was predeceased by her husband, Robert of 55 years, her daughter, Barbara Wing,
her brothers, Charles, Frank, Richard, Russell and Ronald Overlock, and her sisters
Jeannette Orff and Carolyn Overlock.

She is survived by her daughter Roberta Tielinen and her husband Kurt, her grandson

Sadie. She is also survived by a brother, Albert Overlock along with many nieces,
nephews and step grandchildren.
