Words cannot sufficiently express our heartfelt gratitude & thanks.

Denise was an active member of her community which she cherished & loved so dearly, and she was a friend, mentor, tutor & coach to many of its residents as well as beloved foster mother to many children.  She will remain forever in our hearts, and her love, laugh & smile will never be forgotten.

At this time no formal services will be held, but a Celebration of Life in honour of Denise is planned to be held in the Spring.

Memorial donations to the Lady Dunn Health Centre in Wawa would be appreciated by the family.  However, remembrances may be made in the form best desired by friends.
