Denise Ann McLaughlin
March 28, 1953 ~ Jan. 3, 2020
Denise Ann McLaughlin, 66, of Evans, passed away on January 3, 2020 in Greeley.
She was born to Kenneth and Leola (Heinze) Duncan on March 28, 1953, in Greeley. Denise attended Greeley Central High School and married James McLaughlin on Oct. 21, 1972, at First Congregational Church in Greeley.
Denise was a gracious and giving person and acted as the “neighborhood watch” of sorts. She gave rides for her neighbors needing medical attention and could make friends with anyone. She loved to crochet, and garden, and loved her dogs, Molly, Otis and Oliver and enjoyed Joel Osteen. The real love of her life was her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved her Bible and prayer book, before her dog chewed up her prayer book.
Denise is survived by her husband, James of Evans; children, Kristin (Rene) Hernandez of Loveland and Adam (Faith) McLaughlin; grandchildren, Andrew Alvarez, Amber and Alexandra Hernandez of Loveland, Alexis Plumbtree, James and Taylor McLaughlin of Littleton; and her two great-grandchildren; three sisters, Diana Duncan of Greeley, Debora (David) Mitchell of Broomfield, and Doreen “Lynn” (Patrick) Rhoades of Fort Lupton.
Denise is preceded in death by her parents Kenneth and Leola Duncan.
Memorial contributions can be made to the Humane Society of Weld County.
Memorial service at 11 a.m., Friday, Jan. 31, 2020, at Saint
Paul’s Congregational Church, 1525 43rd Ave., Greeley.
