It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Denise Alta Earl (Olson) on June 4th, 2021. She is survived by her mother, Colette; her five children Jason, Denise, Danielle (Mike), Jennifer and Calvin (Alicia); her grandchildren, Brett (Tysan), Ethan, Braydon (Tanisha), Austin, Camryn, Madelyn, Layton, Kinley and Maylee; and her great grandchildren, Ella, Avery, Annalise and Wednesday. Denise is also survived by her sister, Wendy (Dale); brothers, Bill (Ann) and Bob (Yvonne); her honourary brother, Joe (Donna); her brothers-in-law, Richard (Siony), Albert (Dianna), Carl (Pat); sisters-in-law Francis (Don), Charlotte (Howard), Gwen (Bill); as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and her special three-legged friend, Miranda. Denise was predeceased by her husband, Gord; father, Ken; mother-in-law, Elsie; father-in-law, Victor; and sisters-in-law Irene and Barbara. Denise was born on October 3, 1952 in Brooks, and raised on the family farm in Jenner. She moved to Medicine Hat in high school where she remained until her passing. She married the love of her life Gord on March 23, 1991 and together they raised their ever growing family until his passing in 2008. After Gord’s passing, her family continued to grow and there was no greater joy in her life than being ‘Ma’ to all of them. In addition to her family and friends Denise loved to golf, travel and work in her yard. She was also active in the community. She met and touched many people during the sixteen years she owned and operated Café Mundo. As well, she spent a great deal of time volunteering for various organizations including Victim Assistance and the Santa Claus Fund. Denise was loved by many and although she will be greatly missed, her family takes comfort in knowing that Ma and Papa are now reunited and holding hands. Together was always their favourite place to be.
