Denise Jones, 68 “It’s all part of the game” Denise Sue Jones passed away peacefully at 9:03 pm on May 22, 2021 after losing her long and hard-fought battle with cancer. In her final days and moments, Denise was surrounded and comforted by her dearest friends and loving family.
Denise was born on November 6, 1952 in Beech Grove, Indiana to Aubrey and Mary Jane
Jones. She was a part of the Lebanon High School Class of 1971 and was just recently invited to her 50-year class reunion. Denise was a free spirit, always wondering but eventually making her way back home. Over her 69 years of life, Denise lived in many places such as: Chaska, Minnesota; Corpus Christi, Texas; Fort Myers, Florida and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
She was such a special person and any room she walked into was brightened by her sheer beauty and bold personality. Denise lived life to the absolute fullest without fear of what was to come. She was spontaneous and outgoing, courageous and daring, loving and thoughtful, and so much more. Her favorite past times were shopping, travelling, spending time with her family, and going to the casino with her friends.
Denise was the proud mother of her 2 children, Shane and Shanna; along with the proud grandmother of her 3 grandchildren; Steven, Taylor and Logan. She loved her family unconditionally and spent her last few years soaking up as much time as possible with them.
Denise is survived by her son, Shane Quick (Michelle Beckham); her daughter, Shanna Revell (David George); her grandchildren, Taylor Wagoner, Logan Wagoner, and Steven Cole; her brothers Robert Jones and Bill (Cindy) Jones; and sister, Donna Wright (Albert Day).
She is preceded in death by her parents, Aubrey and Mary Jane Jones, along with her sister Dolores Clark.
Up into and during her final moments, Denise continued to crack jokes and assure her family that she loved them unconditionally. She had a wonderful sense of humor and could make light of any situation or just simply put a smile on your face. She will be so deeply missed.
Denise never wanted anyone to see her at anything but her absolute best and wanted everyone to remember her as her beautiful, outgoing, and cheery self. With that being said, there is no service being held as the family will be carrying out her wishes of being cremated and proceeding to have a celebration of life.
Final care of Denise has been entrusted to the Strawmyer & Drury Mortuary, 2400 N. Lebanon Street, Lebanon.
