3 juillet 1937 – 28 juin 2020
Deniese Nuckolls passed away peacefully in Austin, Texas on Sunday, June 28, 2020 after suffering from complications of a stroke in 2010. She was a fighter and battled her stroke complications every year with as much dignity as possible. Jack and Marla are especially grateful to Teresa Cobo who cared for her grandmother gracefully for 5 ½ years so she could remain in her home.

After her graduation, she worked at Kelly Air Force Base until she met her partner in life, Buddy Nuckolls. When they moved to Austin, Dee worked at Mutual Savings & Loan in the beginning of her career and retired as a Mortgage Loan Underwriter in 2008. Buddy and Dee were married 51 wonderful years and raised 5 children. During her retirement, she enjoyed shopping, reading, spending time fishing, hunting, and gambling in Louisiana.
Deniese was preceded in death by her husband, Robert “Buddy” Nuckolls; parents, Benjamin and Laura Buckner; brothers, Elra Lee “Duke” Smith and Bennie Buckner; step-children, Linda Pedro and Robert Nuckolls.
Deniese is survived by her daughter, Laura (Marla) Nuckolls Cobo of Austin, and son, John (Jackie) Nuckolls and wife Barbara of Pennsylvania. One step-daughter, Bonnie Nuckolls Cook and spouse Bruce.

Oh, man, I don't even know where to start! I have so many memories... all the Christmases and thanksgivings! That was when I got to play and color in grammas coloring books with Lindy and sometimes I even got to spend night with her! I remember the candy jar that I always got to pic a couple pieces out of... and she always made sure it was never empty when we came over... the good candies too, not cheap crappy ones... Hershey miniatures.... And the huge rock that hung off a tree (wrote a song bout that tree when i was 9 lol) in her backyard that we all would beat on 🎶DONNGGG🎶... The huge pecan trees we climbed and the bags of pecans we collected... Saw Heimlich maneuver for first and only time in my life when grampa saved DJ's life! Watched a chunk of meet fly out of DJ's mouth at top speed! That was cool! Guess do liked the food so much he was inhaling it Lol! Gramma brought us all together... I'm grateful for those childhood memories. Gramma and grandpa also took my mother, sisters, and I in for my 5th grade year in a very hard trying time for my family, after which our lives changed dramatically and forever. I'm grateful for that too. it was a fairly soft place to fall.. and we enjoyed their cook in, bein deer hunters and fishers! We were spoiled in that respect Lol!
(Sigh) Certainly did not ever expect to become grammas caretaker in the end. That stroke sure did strike her. I can't even imagine how she felt. being such an independent feisty woman. I'm thankful that I had that time with her... she showed me what I'm made of. it was a difficult time and in the end her and I were like an old married couple who knew each other better than anyone. we had hard times and great times. lots of stories she told me. and holymoly gramma was a character! She said the most hilarious things, the most e mbarassing things in public cuz that stroke took away her filter... not that there was much of one before Lol! I love Gramma. She is finally at peace

Mrs. Nuckolls put up with me being around most weekends in high school with our drill team stuff and, of course trips tubing down the Guadalupe. She gave me my first real job at her loan company where I worked on my very first computer... enormous as it was in the 70s. My love and prayers to Marla, Jackie, Bonnie and families.

Knowing Deniese over twenty years as her hairdresser and friend was a pleasure. We shared our experience, strength and hope. We shared our time and our trials. Deniese gave love and laughter. Even when we disagreed she was a steady client and friend.
Rest now. May perpetual light shine upon you, my friend.
