Joyce Grace Hart Dengler passed away on Jan. 8, 2021. Joyce was the loving wife of Gerald James (Jim) Dengler, and mother of Mary (William) Dengler-Frey of DurangoColo., Paul (Gina) Dengler of Lehigh Acres, Fla., Kurt (Lisa) Dengler of Bel Air, Md., and Matthew (Patricia) Dengler of New Milford, Conn. Joyce was born in Wayland, N.Y., to John and Anna (Schwartz) Hart on April 13, 1931. She is pre-deceased by siblings:
Doris and Ronald Hart. Joyce attended Catholic School in Wayland, and graduated high school in
1949. She lived in Rochester, N.Y., for many years and worked for Xerox Corporation. She met the love
of her life, James Dengler, and they were married on April 22, 1961. Although her hands were full raising four children, she diligently maintained her faith, and was a long-time member of St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church in Fredonia, where she also served as an extraordinary minister. She also worked alongside her
husband in the family business, Dengler Chevrolet. She had a gentle, kind, and compassionate spirit, and
found great joy in nature. Joyce was a member of the Fredonia Garden Club, and served as Boy Scout scoutmaster. A lifelong avid reader, she worked as a librarian for the Barker Library. A memorial celebration
of her life is being planned for early summer, and funeral arrangements are made with Larson- Timko Funeral
Home. Her family and friends will miss her.

I was blessed to have Joyce as my mother in law. She was kind, sweet yet firm in her beliefs. She loved her grandchildren taking the time to share stories of her childhood, her travels and learning about their lives. She raised 4 great kids while being a steward to her faith and community. She will be greatly missed in our lives.
