Gayle Boxer, a native Denverite and lifelong resident, passed away surrounded by her family on March 26, 2019, after a brief battle with lymphoma. Rabbis Salomon Gruenwald, Bruce Dollin and Yaakov Chaitovsky and rabbinic intern Kolby Morris-Dahary officiated at the March 28 service at the HEA.
Interment followed at Mt. Nebo Cemetery. Feldman Mortuary made the arrangements.
Gayle Weisbly was born Feb. 10, 1940, in Denver to the late Max and Dorothy Weisbly, and graduated East High School.
She met her future husband Alan Boxer at a Phi Sigma Delta party before her freshman year at the University of Michigan.
They became engaged in the spring of 1958 and were married on Dec. 21, 1958.
She transferred to DU, where she graduated with a sociology degree.
An avid sports fan, Mah Jongg and card player, Mrs. Boxer loved traveling the globe with her husband Alan. She was fortunate to have set foot on each continent and visited some multiple times.
“She was proudest of six grandchildren and their individual accomplishments, and took an active interest in their lives,” the family said. “They described her as their biggest cheerleader.
“Gayle was happiest when the entire family got together, whether in Baltimore, Atlanta or on their many trips abroad.”
Mrs. Boxer is survived by Alan Boxer, her husband of 60 years; son Michael (Caryn Cohen) Boxer, daughter Jodi (Daniel) Dinkin and son Rick (Marcie) Boxer; and grandchildren Rachel and Ben Boxer, Jordan and Aaron Dinkin and Josh and Kayla Boxer.
