Joyce Anne Mason

October 1, 1936 – April 11, 2020

Joyce Anne Spruit was born Oct. 1, 1936 in Holland, Mich. to Jacob and Clara Spruit. She passed away April 11, 2020 in Springfield.

Joyce and her family moved to Los Angeles, Calif. when she was 10 years old and she graduated from Washington High School in 1955. She was married to Paul Watkins from 1956 to 1979 and lived all along the west coast from Seattle to Los Angeles.

Joyce settled in Bandon, Ore. in 1977 and lived there until 2006 when she moved into her daughter’s home, along with her twin sister, in North Bend, Ore. Joyce had two strokes in 2017, which left her with some weakness and memory deficiencies. Joyce was happiest when she was surrounded by her family. She lived her entire life thinking of them and others, giving all she could.
