Denise joined Lenard and IIene Baetz’s family as their first daughter Nov. 20, 1961 at Ogden Dee Hospital in Ogden. Denise grew up in Tooele with her two brothers and sister. She graduated from Tooele High School in 1980. Shortly after her graduation she was introduced to the love of her life. Denise and Darl Anderson were later married on Oct. 29, 1982 in the Jordan River Temple. They built their life and family in Tooele and Grantsville. It is here where she found her calling building a safe, loving, and caring home for her husband and four boys. Denise was known to all as a devoted wife and a kind and loving mother. She was also known by many as a very strong and active member of the LDS Church. When Denise was not at home tending her loved ones, she would spend her time behind an easel creating beautiful oil paintings, or creating quits, scarves, and afghans. Denise had a very caring heart, not just for her family, but for everyone that crossed her path. Denise is survived by her loving husband Darl Anderson of 31 years and four sons Alec, Josh, Matt, and Nate of Tooele.
