Denise was raised in Denver, where her passion for doing hair had grown, and she made the decision to attend a beautician school. She later went on to driving truck over the road. Denise had never met a stranger she was such a loving, kind-hearted person who would do anything for others. Above all else she loved spending time with her grandchildren; they were her life.

Denise is survived by her husband Mike Boyd; sons, Chris (Angela) Ambrose and Skip (Elizabeth) Rogers; grandchildren, Phynnex Michael Ambrose, Blyss Anice Ambrose, Jordan Marie Rogers and Jaxson Wayne Rogers; mother Julia Jones; and siblings, Roger (Sandy) Jones, Ronnie (Mary) Jones, Harold Jones and Bo (Meg) Jones; a host of nieces and nephews; as well many beloved family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her father Bobby Dale Jones.
