Denise was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, a daughter of the late Floyd and Gertrude (Dahlke) Wichtman. She was blessed with four children of whom she loved and cherished. Denise provided her family a loving home with Christian values. She dedicate her life to her children, they always came first; and was known to tell them “A mother is only as happy as her saddest child.” Her door was always open and was like a second mom to many of the kids in the neighborhood. Denise had a fun sense of humor, like no other, that was handed down to her children. She loved playing Bingo and enjoyed her occasional trips to the casino. Her greatest joy was being with the grandchildren, treasuring every moment in their company. Denise had a kindred spirit and a heart of gold. She always put everyone before herself and was willing to do anything for anybody.
