Denise Mrowka, a longtime resident of Fraser, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 16, 2021 with her loving children at her side. Denise was 65 years young.

Denise was born on August 12, 1955 in Detroit, MI to Joan and Walter Mrowka. A few years later her loving brother Butch, who she affectionately called Boosh, was born. Denise’s mother, Joan, always put her children above anything else in life and gave them the best that she could. Denise later married Dennis Estes and they raised two beautiful children together. Andrew Carl Estes was born in 1984 and Jamie Ryann Estes shortly after in 1986. Denise carried on the kind hearted nature and selflessness that she saw from her own mother with her children and put them first to the very end.
Denise was a very special woman with many talents and interests. Denise worked in the ophthalmology field for almost 40 years and her co-workers became part of her extended family. She truly loved all her coworkers and patients. She immersed herself in her love for eyes and expressed that in her impressive stylish collection of eyeglasses and art. Denise had a very extensive collection of angels and crystals. She had a green thumb and enjoyed gardening. Denise could bring any wilted flower back to life with her healing touch. Denise was an entertainer and always the life of the party. She would jump at any opportunity to get her loved ones together. Denise’s grandchildren were her pride and joy! She was their Ema or Wornin and she loved watching them learn and grow as much as she could. Denise had the biggest heart and would go to the ends of the earth to make her friends and family happy or even happier. And laughing… laughing was her favorite. That laugh is one that will never be forgotten.

In a formal obituary you may see a small section of people listed under survivors. But, Denise wasn’t always formal. And she was far from short and sweet. Below is just a few of her most important people who played huge roles in her life.

Denise is survived by her children: Andrew Estes, Andrew’s girlfriend, Jaclyn and Andrew’s ex-wife, Jamie. Jamie Lipiec and Jamie’s husband, Michael. Her grandchildren, Alayna Marie, Dylan Nicole, Kaden James, Lily Grace, Kelsey Rose and Jayde Teresa. Her brother Butch Mrowka, Butch’s wife, Jeanne, and Butch’s ex-wife Cindy. Her aunt, Pat Williams. Her cousin, Dawn Carroll. Her cousin, Mark Williams, Mark’s wife, Kelley, and their children, Lexi and Aiden. Her niece, Angela Hoehner, Angela’s husband Miah, and their children, Samuel, Julia, Abigail. Her nephew, Joey Mrowka and Joey’s fiancé, Hope. Her ex-husband, Dennis Estes. Her great friend, Rick Garcia. Her boyfriend, Phil Drake. And her best friend and partner in crime of over 50 years, Teresa Vick. Denise was predeceased by her beloved mother, Joanie Mrowka and her dog, Cici.

Denise loved the color purple; and we are hoping if you come to visit, you would wear something purple.

Visitation will be held at Faulmann & Walsh Golden Rule Funeral Home, 32814 Utica Road, Fraser, Sunday from 11am until the time of funeral at 3pm. Memorials may be addressed to the American Heart Association. Share memories at
