She also enjoyed gardening, nice cars, and family get togethers. Denise will be remembered for her kind heart and soul.

Denise is survived by her sister, Cheryl Gabel; brother, Scott Johnson; nephews, Troy (Dareen) Gabel and Robert Gabel; niece, Ranille Johnson; and cousins.

Denise was preceded in death by her parents, grandparents, and brother, Randy Johnson.
