Denise was raised on a farm and married her high school sweetheart Lloyd. They just celebrated their 57th Wedding Anniversary. She loved the farm, the hard work that goes with it, and was always ready to lend a helping hand. She loved to garden, bake, do crafts and read. A huge love was music and she especially enjoyed the family gatherings where the Sperling Clan performed. We were incredibly blessed to have just gathered this past week for a family celebration on the family farm!
Denise will be forever loved by her husband, Lloyd; daughters, Kim Ehman (Terry) and Joan Mangel-Ackerman (Clayton); son, Shawn Sperling (Wanda); grandchildren: Kyle (Courtney), Brenan (Nicole), Jaden, McKenna (Rob), Jolene, Jazmin, Shaelyn (Damian), Brittney (Logan), and Sydney; great-grandchildren: Sophie, Olivia, Evelyn, Flynn, Lennon, Aidan, Cali, Brynlee, and Laykin; sister, Myrna Meshka (Clifford); brothers, Don Juhnke (Jan) and Daryl Juhnke; nephews and nieces: Scott (Dawn), Wyatt (Jennifer), Jeffrey (Diane), Cameron (Dianna), Tabatha (Andy), Jeremy (Crystal), Stephanie, Beth (Brandon), Cory, and Samantha (Shawn); as well as numerous family members and friends.
