Her smile and her love for her family was unconditional and infectious. Always dancing, singing, or cooking, Denise lived her life to the fullest! Country Cruising and going to the lake was where she found peace. Her bouncy personality and crazy, witty sense of humor was none like no other. Always willing to lend a hand and never complained about doing so. Her favorite hobby though was spending time with her loved ones. Especially her nieces and nephews she called her, Mijas and Mijos. But her movie nights and any time spent with her son Daniel was by far her most loved moments, as she referred to him as her favorite accomplishment. She loved her son Daniel.
