Goode, Denice

Denice Croft Goode left this earthly realm at 2:56 a.m. Tuesday, April 21, 2020 and went to be with her Lord and Savior. She loved God, and cared deeply for her family and friends. She was a wonderful and loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friends. Denice spent most of her life serving God and others both in her personal and professional life. Many people considered her their surrogate mother and grandmother. She was affectionately known by many as “Momma Niecie” or “Mimi”. Her professional life was spent in several management positions. She retired from retail as the General Manager of Women’s clothing store, Talbots. Denice spent most of her life experiences between Kentucky and Tucson, AZ which develop her desire for adventure and travel. She loved “All” things outdoors, from sky diving to hiking, animals, wild flowers, sunsets, fishing and boating. She also loved capturing these moments in time with photography. Her most precious adventures was cooking for her family and friends and teaching grandchildren to cook. She loved to spend time with family and friends making precious memories. She was fun to be with and at times mischievous. Throughout her life she has shown so many examples of determination, resilience and perseverance, but mostly love and hope.
