Biography

To know Denise Serra Gomez, was to understand that you were in the presence of absolute love, patience, kindness, and above all, a woman of unshakable conviction. Denise was born on June 16, 1953 in Southington, Connecticut. She was the first of two children born to John and Zoila Serra. Raised in a house where faith, love, respect and unity were at the forefront, these very qualities would provide her with a strong foundation that would later be key to her endurance in facing life’s many challenges.

Throughout her youth, the family moved from Connecticut to Illinois, before making Florida their permanent home. Denise dedicated her life to Jehovah God in 1967, and began full-time service as a regular pioneer shortly thereafter, continuing to serve faithfully for the rest of her years, creating life-long friendships and bonds, and helping many to learn of Jehovah’s promise for a better future. Denise’s example of faithfulness, integrity, love and loyalty is admired by all, near and far to this very day.

From a very young age, Denise had a love for classical music and became an avid piano player. She frequently put her ability to use during congregation meetings playing the songbooks on the piano for her fellow brothers and sisters. She was truly a servant at heart.

On June 16, 1973, Denise married her long-time childhood friend, Ciro Gomez. From this marriage, they had two daughters, Wendy and Kerry. During these early years, Denise was a dedicated wife and mother, first and foremost.

Unfortunately, in June 1980 at the young age of 27, Denise unexpectedly suffered a cerebral aneurysm which nearly took her life. Although her health condition would forever be changed, Denise’s faith never wavered, it only became stronger. Whenever she met someone, Denise would always make sure to let them know that she had read the Bible cover to cover. She always encouraged others to read the Bible and have a close relationship with God. She never let her disabilities keep her from serving Jehovah and showing love to others. Her faith was truly inspiring.

Denise had this incredible contagious smile and laugh, that she could always be counted on, no matter the circumstances. Even with limited speech, when you would ask her how she was feeling, her immediate response was always “good, and you?”. Never did she express a complaint or negative comment. Denise always strived to maintain a positive attitude throughout her life.

Denise’s life was a living example of one of her favorite Bible verses found at Joshua 1:9: “Be courageous and strong…Jehovah your God is with you.” Without a doubt, throughout her life, Denise’s courage and strength reflected in her positive personality. She was always graceful, generous, loving, humble, kind, and a truly extraordinary individual.

Denise was predeceased by her loving parents, John and Zoila Serra. She is survived by her daughters, Wendy Sardinas (Gilberto Sardinas) and Kerry Diaz (Oscar Diaz); her grandchildren, Oscar Diaz and Kaleb Diaz; her sister, Arlene Gomez (Jorge Gomez); her nephews, Johnnie Gomez (Michelle Gomez), Tony Gomez, and Jared Gomez; along with many loving relatives and friends.
