She was never scared to get her hands dirty and would help her father and brothers with saddling up the horses or when it was time to feed or brand the cattle. She was always there to offer a helping hand to any of her family members whether it was from baby-sitting or fencing around the family ranch.
Denise received her early and formal education at Pretty Eagle School where she also developed her athletic skills which promoted her to excel in High School State teams for Tongue River High School in Wyoming and graduating her senior year from Lodge Grass High School.

After High School, she had received her Associates of Arts landing her various jobs related to her background as a CNA for Big Horn Emergency Clinic and Hospital in Hardin, MT.
Her children Joselyn & Paulie were her world as well as her nephew Harrison Samuel (SamiSon) whom she took as her own. She was constantly caring for him and taking him with her for weeks at a time until his parents were lonesome. Denise loved and cared for each and every-one of her family members each of them having a special place in Denise’s heart.
