MASON, Joann Randall – I have lived a good and long life. I was born to Russell and Una Randal on April 1, 1917, in Detroit, Michigan. That’s right. I am an April Fool’s baby. I had fun with that fact my entire life. I was smart in school, valedictorian, and most thought I was attractive. My first job was to trade out your burned-out light bulbs with a new bulb, of higher wattage, of course. I lost that job when I married Robert A. Mason in 1945. (Married women were not allowed to work.) He was a “catch” because he was a Michigan State graduate with a good job; working for Buick Motor. We moved to Kansas City where my beautiful baby boy, Randall (Randy) was born in 1945. Buick then moved us to Chicago where my beautiful daughter, Judith (Judy), was born. In 1955, we all moved to Davison, Michigan, where we spent many happy years. I worked off and on during the years in Davison mostly in the Genesee County Library system. I went to different libraries that were short-handed; I loved it. My husband, Bob, retired early from Buick so we were lucky to travel across and around this Country for 25 years seeing all the beautiful and amazing sights America has to offer. In 2001, Bob and I sold our home in Davison, Michigan, packed up everything we owned and moved to Overland Park, Kansas, to live with our daughter, Judy. Robert Mason died on March 8, 2002, and my beloved son, Randy, died in 2006. During this time, I occupied myself with reading every book I touched, eating Russell Stovers chocolate, watching old movies and anything else I wanted to do. All was good. On September 10, 2017, Jesus wrapped me in his grace and took me to a place I only imagined. Everyone I have ever loved was there to greet me. Don’t grieve for me. Cheer instead. I will see you again. I am survived by my daughter, Judy Mason Mertz of Overland Park, Kansas.
