Being a wife and mother was a great joy for Denise and she dedicated herself to her family. She taught her children right from wrong from a very young age and made sure they never forgot it. Some of Denise’s pastime fun included watching Mike & Molly, singing to the radio, listening to Christmas music and working with children by being a teacher to them. She also loved cooking and her special dishes were cranberry sauce, spaghetti and chicken soup.
Every year Denise has attended Christmas Mass at Mary Immaculate Catholic Church. The church is very special to Denise because her parents helped build Mary Immaculate Catholic Church.
