Mattie Alice Seaton was born in Allerton, Illinois to Jake and Edna Seaton on July 28, 1922, she was the middle of five girls. After graduating from high school, she worked a variety of jobs until meeting the love of her life, Harold Hutson.

Mattie went to work for 3-M in later years. Dean and Mattie were blessed with four children, Harold, Darrell, Tari Lee and Deena. Everyone who knew Mattie could tell that her family was her “pride and joy”. Nothing was more important than Mattie’s family.
After retiring, Dean and Mattie enjoyed summers in Annandale on Clearwater Lake, beginning in the early 80’s they both fell in love with the area and made many friends. After Dean passed away in 1993, Mattie continued to spend time in Annandale with family and friends. She will be remembered for her love of playing games and cards, especially Euchre and just being around people.
