Denise Nelson, age 62, went home to be with her Lord on March 9th, 2020, surrounded by family in Ocala, Florida. Denise was born in Warren, PA. She met her husband, Glenn, in Pennsylvania. Denise lived a life that exemplified her name and in doing so left a legacy for all that knew and loved her. The doors to her home and heart were always open. She will be remembered for her unconditional love, her gentle spirit, her forgiving nature, her inner strength, her sense of humor, and her silliness. She also enjoyed camping, photography, baking pies and Christmas cookies, shopping, and most of all -- the love for her family. She was preceded in death by her father, Gene Alfred Brecht, and her mother, Doris Loretta Brecht. Denise is survived by her husband, Glenn Nelson, married 41 years. She is also survived by their children, Melissa Hartfiel and husband Paul, Gregory Nelson and wife Ann, her six grandchildren and one great-grandchild, her brothers David and Daniel Brecht, and her sisters Diane Brecht Edwards and Darla Brecht White Phelps.
