Denise was a 1978 graduate of Frankfort Senior High School. She attended Tabernacle of the Lord Jesus Christ while her dad was the pastor there.

Denise is survived by her children, Cassandra (Brian) Alford, Nathan White, Krystal White, and Jason Randolph; her sisters, Darsha (Randy) Hoskins and Dawn (John) Brinkman; nephews for whom she had guardianship, Jeremy and Greg Jacobs; her life partner, Brian Randolph; and many nieces and nephews who love her dearly.
