She loved animals and birds and was involved with them her entire life.

She also loved fishing, the beach and watching her children play sports.

She was devoted to helping others and for years, Denise and her family spent Christmas Eve lunch at the Lighthouse Mission in Lexington, Ky handing out over a hundred bags that she bought, to men, womens and children. The bags were filed with warm clothing, snacks and of course, toys for the children.
