Jacquelyn L. Mason
Aug. 8, 1940-July 13, 2021
Mrs. Mason was born and raised in Flint, Michigan, where she was an active member of St. Luke’s Catholic Church. She met her one true love, Robert Mason, in the church choir, and they married on August 29, 1969. They raised their two children in Grand Blanc and moved to California in 1997 when the nest was empty after their daughter’s graduation from veterinary school.
A lifelong advocate of health and education, Mrs. Mason worked as a medical technologist for over 45 years and was a passionate scholar of Shakespeare, genealogy, and medicine. After retiring, she devoted herself to the happiness and well-being of her grandchildren. She will always be remembered for her extraordinary kindness and her generosity. No matter how awkward or confused or lost we felt, she was always there to lend a sympathetic ear, listen patiently with mercy rather than judgment, and help us find our way. We owe her a lifetime debt of gratitude for the gifts of love and support we received.
She is survived by her daughter Lisa Hoban; son Richard Mason; sisters Francine Vaughn and Kathleen Luer; and brothers Jonathan Lamson, Joseph Lamson, and Michael Lamson. She was preceded in death by husband Robert Mason; brothers David Lamson and Patrick Lamson; and sister Margo McGaffey.
