Joyce Fern Vineyard

May 19, 1943 — March 5, 2022

Joyce Fern (Sprueill) Vineyard was born May 19, 1943, in Stroud, OK, to the late Eward and Clella (Logue) Sprueill. She passed on Saturday, March 5, 2022, in Healdton, OK, surrounded by her family, at the age of 78. Joyce and Buck L. Vineyard were married on June 29, 1962, in Blackwell, OK. He preceded her in death on August 10, 2010. From this marriage were born six children, Penny, Pam, Paula, Paige, Ben, and John.

Joyce grew up in Blackwell, where she attended high school. After she and Buck married, they moved to Southern Oklahoma, where they raised their family. Joyce was a very gentle, kind-hearted lady, that never backed down from hard work. She devoted her life to her family and others she could help along the way. Joyce was an excellent cook, and known for preparing three, home cooked meals every day for her beloved family, and anyone else that happened by at mealtime.

Later in life, Joyce began working at the Davis Senior Citizens Center, where she helped prepare meals. Cooking for others brought her great joy, as well as many cherished memories. After retiring from the Davis Senior Citizens, she continued to frequent the center, where she would enjoy a meal and play games with others. She especially enjoyed winning an occasional game of dominoes against Jim Shultz and LaVerne Pullen. Joyce experienced a full life, blessed by her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She will be greatly missed by her family and many friends.

In addition to her parents and husband, Joyce was preceded in death by one daughter, Pam Goza; one son, Ben Vineyard; great-granddaughter, Patricia Counts; great-grandson, Damion Reddick; and two brothers, Bill Sprueill & his wife Kathryn, and Wayne Sprueill & his wife Olive.

Those surviving Joyce includes three daughters, Penny Vineyard & companion Jay Mensch of Sulphur, Paula Reddick & husband Wayne of Blair, and Paige Meador & husband Dusten of Healdton; one son, John Vineyard of Healdton; son-in-law, Mark Goza & wife Melissa of Pontotoc; daughter-in-law, Sherri Vineyard of Ravia; 14 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, one great-great grandchild; as well as a host of extended family members.
