She was born on April 17, 1936 at Farmers Hill, Oklahoma, to the late Virgil and Sarah Ann (Giddings) Rogers. She married her hometown sweetheart Charles Sherman in 1954, shortly after graduating high school. Charles was home on a short leave from Uijeonghu, Korea, when she married him on February 15, 1954 in Valliant, Oklahoma. Once Charles was home for good, they set their sites for Manson Washington, where the apple industry was starting to flourish. Working for various apple growers here in the valley, they purchased their own orchard in 1972 and have been farming ever since.
Mazzell cherished her family and friends and genuinely loved reminiscing favorite memories she shared with them over the years. She had a deep connection to the Manson-Chelan Valley. Her beautiful smile and hugs will be missed by everyone.
She and Chuck raised two children, Michael Sherman (Ashley), Waldport, OR and Reggie Trusel (David), Manson, WA; two grandchildren, Justin Sherman (Elizabeth Stoeze), Astoria, Oregon and Bethany Trusel, Manson and she was a proud great grandparent of Fionna, Andrea, Sophia, Carter and Hunter. She was preceded in death by her parents, their infant daughter, Regenia that passed at childbirth and her brother, Vester Rogers.
