July 13,1963-March 7, 2016, passed away at the age of 52 surrounded by her family.
Denise will be remembered for her positive outlook on life. She had a long battle with cancer and lived with the side effects for more than 24 years and never complained. Denise had a passion for sports. She was an avid golfer, bowler, curler, ball and hockey player. Once her health failed and she could no longer play sports she still loved to cheer on her Montreal Canadiens. Aside from sports the only thing that was more important to Denise was her family. The Morissette annual camping trip was always the highlight of Denise’s year. Campfires, stories and big meals was part of the fun as well as seeing all her nieces and nephews grow up and have kids of their own. Denise will always be remembered for being a social person. No matter the time that passed between visits she was always happy to see you.
Denise was a beloved mother to Tabatha (Shawn) Webber and devoted grandma to Calix, Meadow and Linden. She survived by her brothers and sisters, Lorraine (Jim) Logue, Cecil (Heather) Morissette, Earl (Wendy) Morissette, Mark (Melanie) Morissette, Delphine (Mark) Wiszniak, Lori Harrison, along with 8 nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by her parents Lydia and Don and brother Russel.
The family is extremely grateful to Dr. McCoid for her years of support. Also to extend a sincere thank you to the staff at KBR Hospital and to the caring staff of Columbia View Lodge for taking such great care of Denise over the last few years.
Funeral Service will be held at the St. Rita’s Catholic Church in Fruitvale at 11:00am on April 2, 2016. As expressions of sympathy and in lieu of flowers, donations to Columbia View Lodge Trail or the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
