Obituary for M. Denise Gotch

Mary Denise Gotch, 61, of Salt Lake City, UT passed away of kidney and liver failure on October 7, 2018.

Denise was born on May 16, 1957 to Noel and Joanne (Leonardson) Gotch. She grew up in Shelley, ID along with her brother Dwain.

Denise and her family spent her childhood traveling, camping, fishing, and relaxing at their summer home in Palisades. When she wasn’t lovingly battling her older brother she enjoyed arts and crafts, dancing, crocheting, and even starred in a small town production of Sleeping Beauty. She had many talents, and even made her own clothes in High School. As a young woman she loved to travel and treasured her trips to Europe with her schoolmates.

Denise gave birth to her best friend Mary Shelise on July 19, 1978. From the moment Shelise was born they were inseparable. Whether they were watching movies, going on weekend adventures, camping in Idaho with family, or attending gem shows (she acquired quite the collection of unique and beautiful stones!), they have always been inseparable.

Denise retired earlier this year from the State of Utah Department of Public Safety after 38 years of service.

Denise was a loving mother, sister, daughter, and aunt.

Denise was preceded in death by her father Noel and her mother Joanne.

She is survived by her daughter Shelise, brother Dwain (Jodi), nephews Mathew (Amber), Conley (Kristen), Bryce, and many loving great nieces, nephews and extended family.
Graveside services will be 1:00 pm Friday, October 12, 2018 at the Taylor Cemetery. The family will meet with friends from 11:30 am till 12:30 pm also on Friday at Nalder Funeral Home in Shelley.
