She attended St Eloi Catholic School and Minneota High School. Denise worked at several jobs including many years at Schwan’s and SMSU Food Service. She moved into her new home in 2010 where she resided until 2022 when her health needs became challenging. She then moved to Good Samaritan Society in Westbrook, MN.

She enjoyed the outdoors and loved caring for her flowers and gardening. She was a talented artist and painted many beautiful wildlife and landscape scenes. She also enjoyed making floral arrangements and writing poems. Denise had a special place in her heart for those less fortunate and for animals, she especially loved her dog, Foxy.

Denise was a joy to be with and will be greatly missed.
