Denise was born on November 2, 1974 in Hammonton NJ. She grew up in Newfield and loved her time playing softball with so many of her friends. She attended Delsea Regional High School and graduated from Vineland High in 1993. Denise lived her early life to the fullest and finally laid down her roots at PHH Mortgage in Mt. Laurel.
She loved her family and friends to the fullest and would give and do anything for each and every one of them. She adopted Murphy, her pup, and he was her world. Denise loved traveling, the beach, her Ankylosing Spondylitis community, youtube, getting new cars and especially her facebook community. But most of all she loved her husband, her mom and her step children, who they lovingly called SMOTHER.
