Denise or "Nisi" had many long-time friends, many of which belonged to St. Raphael's Catholic Church in Mikado, Michigan, where she was a Sunday School teacher, Sunshine Lady (sending cards to and visiting other parishioners), a member of the Prayer Circle and a Eucharistic Minister. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, baking, gardening, collecting snow globes, writing and sketching. She loved animals especially Heidi her dog and Casper her well-travelled kitty. Very rarely did she miss sending cards and writing letters to loved ones for birthdays or holidays. Her favorite holiday was Christmas and she always made it magical.
