On October 14, 1964 Denise Ann Strauser was born. Embraced in love on February 24th. Her life was overtaken by the tidal wave of cancer. A battle she fought with all the dignity and grace only a superhero could summon. Denise lived her life in Iowa and had two lovely daughters who she would have sacrificed everything for. She enjoyed family time and raining kisses and hugs on little ones. Denise had a love for meaningful words,whether it be a story ,song or gathered information. When Denise's path was crossed with disrespect she would express her own select words. They were ignited with fire and,lit up a conversation like the Fourth of July; very colorful and direct. She had a love for learning that earned her a degree in respiratory therapy and sleep technology. She exhibited a strong sense of ethics and professionalism. Denise was one to protect her heart well and If chosen to be called a friend you truly earned her trust, care and twisted sense of humor. She was surely a strong force of a woman and for those lives she touched the fabric of her spirit will forever be woven into our hearts. Until we meet again you shall be so very missed our beloved and admired Denise.

I always knew I could depend on your judgement, your opinion, your expertise and your honesty. I know your girls and Michelle will miss you forever. I’m glad you are at peace now—when you see Karen give her a hug! Love you. Connie Mann
You leave this world a less vivid place, you were truly a unique individual. Your keen sense of humor and intelligence was greatly appreciated. You will be missed my friend but I'm so glad you no longer have to fight and are at peace.
I am going to miss you. You made work fun. I loved your sense of humor and your outlook on life.
You were a great friend. I am lucky to have known you.
Rest easy Denise. You were a great friend and an inspiration and your friendship was priceless to me. You were one tough cookie. I’m gonna miss you and will never forget you.
