Deneen and I worked together at OBGYN clinic for Stanacola. We had so much fun. Deneen loved to tease and laugh. We were always playing tricks one each other. She got me good one day by putting a sign on my car. I was on my way home and she called me wanting to know if I found it. I can't tell what it said. We both had a good laugh. She loved her family and friends. I know she will be missed. I haven't seen her in a while but I kept up with her on Facebook. God bless you Melissa. Praying for your family

I have shared so many memories with Deneen and this family over the years, from seeing Jessica grow into the beautiful woman she is to everything you have accomplished. You are you mother’s pride and joy. Melissa my rock, the two of you have always been there to laugh, cry, and whatever else was needed at the time. Thank you Lacroix family for allowing me to share in this wonderful family. I miss you Deneen

I met Deneen when we were in the 6th grade at Gonzales elementary we became instant friends. We just reconnected last year after losing touch for many years. I am grateful that I was able to visit with her a few months ago she talked about her daughter, grandson , sisters and her mom during our visit. She told me she didn't know if she would be here by the end of this year but, I had no idea her passing would come this soon. Please accept my condolences. I will miss you my friend wish we would have had more years to laugh and talk together.

Deneen was a very special person. From one mother to another - Deneen was an amazing step mom to my babies, Tyler Draves and Meagan Draves Facio. Deneen was a kind and special lady !

We were both 14, Deneen stayed the night with me. My stepmom had lot of cats. This was in the summer on a Sunday night. When we woke up Monday morning the cat had pooped in my room and we got up and stepped in it. Well on Monday’s they shutoff everyone’s water to fill up the pull in the trailer park. So now we have this Cat mess squished between our toes and no water to clean it off!! We did find some wet ones eventually. But we laughed so hard once it was over! I love you Deneen! You were my BFF in 9th grade! You will never be forgotten! Fly high in Heaven with your love Frank. So glad we got one day together as adults! RIP beautiful Angel 🥰🥰
