MANISTIQUE TOWNSHIP - Denise C. Weber, 59, of Duck Inn Road, Manistique Township, Mich., crossed over on June 7, 2013, at Marquette General Hospital after a brief but strongly contested battle with cancer. Mercifully, the Lord intervened and provided a virtual saint for a nurse in her final hours.
She was born Feb. 13, 1954, in Lansing, Mich., the daughter of Ivan and Arlene (Baker) Dennis. She attended school there and was a graduate of Everett High School with the Class of 1972. In 1974, she married Larry Brady in Lansing and moved to Manistique shortly after.
Denise married Gregory Weber in 2002 and they lived happily on the Duck Inn Road since then. During her time in Manistique, Denise was employed at Putvins Drugs, Hardees, Krist Oil Citgo, and most recently at the State Savings Bank. She enjoyed her work at all of these places because she liked to interface with people. She was a good worker.
She enjoyed bowling, playing cards and Yahtzee with her friends, fishing, hunting and cheffing. She was a true champion of those less fortunate than herself, and took great pleasure in helping people. She was a dog person and had an affinity for the beagle species. She was preceded in death by special beagle number 1, Budzo, and is survived by special beagle number 2, Bonzo. The world is a better place for Denise having passed through it.
Denise is survived by her husband, Gregory M. Weber of Manistique; daughter, Cassandra Roberts of Manistique and April Brady of Escanaba; son, Forrest (Candice) Brady of Columbia, S.C.; her parents, Ivan and Arlene Dennis of Columbia, S.C.; siblings, Vivian Marion, Melissa (Bradley) Nuovo, and Ivan (Doris) Dennis, all of Columbia, S.C. She is also survived by two grandsons, one granddaughter, and one step-granddaughter, all of whom she was immensely proud.
Visitation will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. Monday, June 10, at the Messier-Broullire Funeral Home in Manistique. Funeral services will follow at 5 p.m. Monday at the funeral home with Rev. James Troyer officiating. Burial will be in the Wood District Cemetery in Doyle Township.
