Denise Annette Lenox, 67, of Kalamazoo Michigan, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 23, 2023 at
her home in Kalamazoo. She was born March 16, 1956 in Battle Creek, Michigan, the daughter of John
and Shirley Moriarty, who preceded her in death.
Denise was a loving, caring and compassionate daughter, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. She
loved her friends and would help anyone at the drop of a hat. She was a meticulous homemaker and
took pride in her home and her garden known as her “Happy Place”. She loved the outdoors and nature
and all of God’s beautiful creation. She so enjoyed feeding the deer, birds and squirrels that visited her
home. She was an avid reader and especially loved murder mysteries as she prided herself in being able
to solve the case before the detectives in the stories. She had many kitties during her lifetime and they
gave her great joy, with the last two being Bella and Shadow.
She is survived by her loving husband Alan Lenox, her three children: Son Neil and his wife, Kimmie, from
Flushing Michigan; daughter, Danielle and her husband Rehan from Tustin California; and her son Aaron
from Ann Arbor Michigan; her five grandchildren: Mamoun, Ali, Lucas, Abigail, and Louella all of whom
she adored, and her three younger siblings: Michelle Loedeman (Frank), Colette Calame (Matthew
Stratton), and Michael Moriarty; her nieces and nephews Ian (Gena and little Eli) Walters, Kailee
(Alejandro) Vinasco, Caleb (Jamie) Moriarty, Luke Moriarty, Noah Moriarty and Grace Moriarty. Her
family all loved her dearly and will take comfort in knowing she will forever be a part of their lives as she
left each with many special memories.
