Denese You will be missed by all of us. I enjoyed the fun we had in grade school and high school at Chatfield. When you and your mom and dad and sister would come to the family farm, we would have a blast.

We had so much fum and you got to see my sisters, Lana, Cindy, LeeAnn and brother George. Yes, ya, ah we made a fantastic time. Love You Glenna Berquam

Memories

Each time I saw her she had Light in her eyes and the same pure joy you see in this photograph. Denese is a woman of character and great strength. Definitely a Proverbs 31 woman. I know this because I have the honor and priviledge of spending my days for the past 8 years with her living legacy, Tiffany Bonham, daughter. The nut don't fall very far from the tree. Our culture is what we grew up in every day. What we learned by watching others. Tiffany is the best mother I know. She is a Christian woman teaching her children the Godly way to live. Her firm foundation began with her childhood a woman rooted in Christian belief and values. Our prayer for the family is that God will comfort them and heal their hearts from the loss of Denese on earth. Knowing we will all see her again and she will be even more heavenly than she was on earth. LOVE!
