Joan M. Salyers (Mastel)

October 24, 1936 - March 1, 2020

Joan, 83, passed away peacefully in her sleep early Sunday morning, ending her years-long struggle with dementia.


She is preceded in death by parents, Walter and Ida (Iversen) Mastel; former spouses, Tom Shepard and Jim Salyers; sister-in-law, Mary Mastel; and brother-in-law, Al Hartmann.


Survived by daughters, Sandra (John) Schlagel, Michele Jackson, and Wendy (Jim) Gale; grandchildren, Matt Grewe, Jen (Nick) Welker, Jordan and Alexis Jackson, Lilly and Kaylee Gale; great-granddaughter, Alayah Jackson; siblings, Walter Mastel, Joyce (Nick) Walter, Delores Fairbanks, Lawrence Mastel, Diane (Victor) Hepokoski, and Rosemary Hartmann; as well as many other relatives and friends.


Joan was a dedicated employee of the Pioneer Press for 30 years as a proofreader and printer. She continued to keep up with all current events even after retiring in 2001. She was an avid reader and wildly quick-witted. She had impeccable style - ever the picture of perfection from head to toe. Joan was a true blue Minnesota sports fan, especially when it came to the Vikings and Twins. She loved being social and spending time with her family.
