Denise was a former Teachers Aid for several years in the Boyd County School Systems. She was known to her family and friends as one of the most kindhearted and giving person one would ever meet. Denise was always smiling, full of laughter and loved life. Her personal relationship with God was strong and always relied upon her faith in God. She was one that loved her family and she loved them without measure. Her son Clay and her granddaughter Mizzouri were the light of her life. Denise will be greatly missed by both her family and her friends. With her departure there is a great void but also great happiness and assurance in knowing she has been reunited with loved ones, whom departed before her, and there is great jubilation in Heaven.
She is survived by her son, Christopher Clay Stiltner, her partner of over 30 years, David LeMaster, her loving granddaughter Mizzouri Stiltner; one brother, Fred (Kelly) Sammons, II; nephews Joshua, Caleb, Aiden Sammons and Jaxson Snowden; her second family, Steve (Bonita) LeMaster, Butch LeMaster and Stephanie (Jason) Poplin; along with a host of other close family and friends.
