Joy Beth Crandell   August 28, 1935 – July 4, 2023

Joy Beth Crandell (Grandma Great) passed away peacefully on the 4th of July and gained her ultimate independence at the age of 87.  Joy loved her family, church, and country.  She lived life to the fullest every day.  Joy was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in many capacities.

Joy was born August 28, 1935 in Pie Town, New Mexico, to Mabel and Glen Johnson.  Throughout her life she lived in Aztec, New Mexico along with Arizona cities – Tolleson, Tempe, Phoenix, and Mesa.

Joy loved her family!  Delbert and Joy (married 71 years) are the parents of 9 children – Dave, Dale, Darla Rider, Don, Daren, Devin, and Doug (2 preceded her in death – Richard and Dana), 34 grandchildren, and 65 great-grandchildren (one on the way).  She attended every event possible when her posterity was involved:  ball games, dance recitals, plays, graduations, etc.

Joy was an avid reader and kept up with what is going on in the world.  She loved Instagram and keeping up with her family.  She was an Angel who always made everyone feel special and always told everyone how proud she was of all of her grandchildren.  She was always up for a game of cards or Dominoes.  She liked to WIN!

She always sang to her family – “I love you, a bushel and a peck, a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck!”
