Gibbons, Joyce Joan  
Joyce Joan Gibbons, born June 21, 1931, passed away on August 13 in San Luis Obispo, California. Her death was unexpected, after 84 healthy and happy years. She will be deeply missed by her four children, Jeff Gibbons (Martine), of Port Townsend, Washington, Jeanne Gibbons of St. Charles, Missouri, Jack Gibbons (Gena) of Roseville, California and Julie Ann Brockett (Randy) of Colorado Springs, Colorado. She will also be missed by eight grandchildren, Jeremiah, Mariah and Jedidiah Brockett, Aubrie Gibbons, Dakota and Micah Plummer, and Olivia and Jack Gibbons. Joyce was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 60 years, John Turney Gibbons, who died earlier this year. John and Joyce were long-time residents of Atascadero, which they considered one of the most beautiful places in California. They spent their early married life in San Luis Obispo and also spent many years in Antelope Valley, where Joyce managed a surgical practice while John worked for NASA. Born in Ashley, North Dakota, to Mary (Eisenbeis) and Warren Rudow, Joyce spent most of her childhood in Lodi, California, where the family relocated in 1935. She had three siblings, Jacqueline Rudow, who died in childhood, Warren Rudow (Bonnie), of Lodi, and Patricia "Susie" Martin (Arthur) of Folsom. Joyce was a 1949 graduate of Lodi High School. She was an intelligent and curious autodidact who instilled her lifelong thirst for knowledge in her children. Her interests were many and varied, as evidenced by a remarkable armchair-based success rate on Jeopardy, her favorite television program. Joyce loved history and was endlessly fascinated by the personalities and predilections of those who lived it. She was a bridge champion and a great bowler. She appreciated classic movies, theater, a good book, a lovable cat and the great humorists and singers of her era. She also liked to travel, was quick to laugh and revealed a highly competitive nature when playing games with her kids and grandkids, a favorite pastime. Above all, she loved her family. Joyce Gibbons lived a full and healthy life until her very last day, and her memory will live on in those who loved her. As was her wish, there will be no services; in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your favorite charitable cause.
