In the late 1970’s they moved to Grand Junction where they were part of a successful landscape business which moved them to Battlement Mesa in the early 1980’s. During their years in Battlement Mesa they became very involved in rebuilding the community after the crash of the oil shale boom. Danice was president of the Battlement Mesa Chamber. She brought to town events such as downhill mountain bike races, the Blue Dot Car Shows, the annual Christmas Craft Fair, and the 4th of July Fireworks show. Danice and Jack were pivotal members of Duck’s Unlimited for many, many years. Danice was a great fan of the Denver Broncos and any sport played by her kids, Grandkids and Great Grandchildren. Retirement brought them back to Grand Junction in 2004 where they enjoyed spending time watching their grandchildren play sports. She was always willing to put together a wonderful meal while surrounded by family and friends. Danice truly loved entertaining and cooking for everyone and anyone.

Danice was my sister in law for 55 years. I loved her as my sister. We shared so many experiences through the years, the sweet and the bittersweet. So many great memories, I can’t begin to highlight the most special. She was always there for her brother, Dan, and me. Her passing leaves a hole in my heart. Wish I could be there to share an embrace with Jack and all the kids and grandkids. Love you all.

Aunt Danice will always hold a special place in my heart. I always admired her selfless giving spirit. She truly loved and pampered her family. She always welcomed me and my family with open arms whenever we came to visit and always made us feel special. She helped keep an eye on my dad in his final years of life and did her best to help him and my mom when she could. I will always love her and will dearly miss her. Best wishes to the family during this difficult time.
