Esther Joyce (McNeely) Dangler

September 6, 1933 - October 13, 2021

The family of Joyce Dangler would like to share the news of Joyce's passing on October 13, 2021. She passed away at Community Hospital surrounded by her children and grandchildren who loved her dearly. She was a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend. Joyce was born in Fountain, Colorado on September 6, 1933, to Anna Laura (Bessie) and Jesse Mc Neely.

Joyce lived in several small towns in Colorado growing up but met and married her husband, Larry Dangler, in Grand Junction, CO. They were married September 30, 1950, and were married 66 years, having their family in Anaheim, California, and returning to Grand Junction in 1976.

Joyce was a homemaker providing a wonderful home for her family of three children, Leta (Wilburn), Larry Dangler, and Tammie (Dalton) Dangler, all of Grand Junction, CO. They had eight grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Larry Dangler; parents, Bessie and Jesse McNeely; sister, Dorothy, and brother, Earl "Buddy" McNeely.

Joyce lived her life knowing she would be reunited with her loved ones through Jesus Christ our Lord. We will be celebrating our beloved Joyce on October 19, at 11:00 a.m., at Callahan-Edfast Mortuary.

I remember her well from my childhood. I always thought she was my aunt and didn't realize until I was older that she was my mothers cousin. Such a kind smiling person and I was always struck by how beautiful she was. She reminded me of a Hollywood star.
