Denise was my very good friend, someone I enjoyed talking with, humorous, friendly, and caring. I’ll miss her dearly.

When I first met Denise, at a church skating party, we became instant best friends. We had so much fun, laughter, antics, being in each other’s weddings and ... so many life lessons together. First time I went to her house found out it was the house my mother’s family lived in and my parents got married in that house! And of course the ‘presence’ in the house! Lots of laughter and fun with the McKinley family! Going to miss my Neichy for sure! Rest easy in peace my dear friend!

My beautiful cousin. I will never forget the stories you kept telling me when we would visit about your house being haunted. As family you are special and loved. You will be missed. God bless.

Denise
I am so lucky to have you as a best friend.
We laughed often and support was unconditional.
You will be in my heart and memories, forever...
Love ya lots!

My favorite and the best fun-filled adventure of my life was white water rafting down Blue River with Teresa and Denise even though the river was lacking white water to actually raft on. Denise was fun-loving and a true joy to be around. Dan and I will always cherish that experience.

Rest in Peace Denise
