Born in Warwick, a daughter of Pauline A. (Jarbeau) Chevalier and the late Joseph C.

She became a highly skilled survey engineering technician working at Robert Bellamy & Associates in Myrtle Beach, SC. Denise was a talented artist who loved going to the beach, especially with her best friend, Vanessa Ciesla. In Surfside Beach, SC, she was literally walking distance to the Atlantic Ocean. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends and always saw the good in everyone she encountered.
Denise was the loving mother of Curtis Palm of Raeford, NC, Jason Childers of Tallassee, TN, and Jessi Ciorra of Surfside Beach, SC. She leaves 11 grandchildren, 4 nephews, 4 nieces, 1 great-nephew, and 1 great-niece. Denise is survived by her loving brother Michael Chevalier and his wife Kim of Warwick.
