Denise Ann Liddle, 65, of Waverly, died Sunday, April 28, 2019, at the farm in Clarksville.
Denise was born November 17, 1953, in Mason City, Iowa, the daughter of Maurice and Kathleen (Schrage-Cohn) Elliott. She graduated from Postville High School in 1972 and the University of Northern Iowa. She worked for John Dutchers Glass and Paint, Access Inc. and most recently Waverly-Shell Rock School as a paraeducator for the past ten years. She thoroughly enjoyed working with the students and making a difference in their lives.
Denise enjoyed riding her motorcycles and loved the company of her puppy Tori. She was a voracious reader who appreciated well written books; she always had one on hand. She loved all things Disney which made the epic family Disney trip in 2014 a highlight of her life. Denise felt the bond of family went deeper than being related. She would constantly open her home to someone in need, to help them along their journey of life. Her pride and joy were her two grandchildren, Leah and Riley, with whom she loved spending time with.
Denise is survived by her associate, Al Nieman of Clarksville, two daughters, Jessie (Morgan) Cowell of Ankeny and Jonnie (Charles) Becker of Ames, two grandchildren, Leah and Riley Becker, her other kids, Joe Williams of Waverly and Corey (Brad) Petersen of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, her mother, Kathleen Cohn of Denver, siblings, Maureen Shaner of Sumner, Dan (Lynn) Elliott of Postville, Vickie Burington of Fayette, Angela (Jeff) Lund of Denver and John Elliott of Postville. She is preceded in death by her father, Maurice Elliott, and her nephew, Nickolas Elliott.
