My thoughts and prayers go out to the Denise Darcel family. I have been her fan from the first time I saw her in the film "Battleground". My fondest memory was when I met her and she invited me to her home here in south-west Florida. What a gracious and kind woman. She introduced me to her friends and family as "My number one fan", and when I went home late that day with a personalized autographed photo of her I was walking on air.
She was a beautiful woman in both body and soul and she will be missed and in my thoughts forever......
Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior. He died for us to have eternal life.
My claim to fame is that my father was so enamoured with this actress that he named me after her in 1959. I love that legacy! May God bless and keep the family! Rest in peace.
Psalms 90:10 states, "In themselves the days of our years are seventy years, and if because of special mightiness that are eighty years." Although she lived a long life this doesnot relieve the pain that is felt by her love ones.
Avec peine nous avons lu de ton depart de ce monde. Apres Georges notre ami ausssi,son depart en 2003, c'etait ton tour de quitter ce monde. Nous penserons toute notre vie a tes grandes fetes et tes partys en Floride dans ta superbe Maison a Casey Key. C'etait merveilleux. Que tu etais belle avec tes cheveux blonds et tes levres rouges. Tu etais pour nous, et nous le savons pour beaucoup de personnes, une grande inspiration. Nous oublierons jamais, tes chants aux Happy Hours en Floride ou au Wisconsin. Que Dieu te donne la paix. Nous pensons juste maintenant et nous penserons toujours a ton sourire,et a ta belle voix qui nous montrais toujours ta joix de vivre.
Merci Denise pour tout ce que tu as fais pour nous.
Kathleen et Claude
My deepest sympathies lie with her family and friends during this sudden trajedy. She was glorious, beautiful, an stunning! What class!
I was 10 years old when I saw "Battleground." I wasn't old enough to understand the implication of Holley's comment about the mother of the two little moppets asking for "...chewing gum, chocolate, cigarettes for Mama..." His comment..."Get a load of Mama!" At that moment, I fell in love with "Denise!" That movie has remained one of my all time favorites, all these years. I spent a career in the Air Force...am now 71 years old. I watch that movie no less than a dozen times a year...and I'm still in love with "Denise!" A sad loss...but a life-time wonderful memory. Thank you, for sharing her with us GI's.
I was named after Denise Darcel according to my mother who passed away back in 1995. May she, like my mother, rest in peace.
I remember her in several of the movies mentioned. How proud your family must be! I hope your sadness will be lessened by your memories of this remarkable woman.
Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.
I AM SORRY FOR THE LOSS OF YOUR LOVED ONE. MAY THE GOD OF ALL COMFORT HELP YOU IN THIS MOST DIFFICULT TIME.

OMG....I have always been told about Denise Darcel but never really believed it. My father was so in love with her I was named Denise, my sister 3 years younger was named Darcel. Six years later our next sister was named Darise...Dar..(Darcel)...ise (Den..ise). Wow I only wished I had met her. So sorry for your loss.
We enjoyed watching Denise in the movies. We are very sorry for your loss.
I was born in 1975 and named after the famous actress...she will be missed.
I was born in 1957 an my mom thought Denise was such a beautyful actress she named me after her. I am so sorry to hear about your mom Chris. God bless you and my family and I pray you find comfort in knowing she is with the Angles. God bless you.
When I was girl I saw Ms. Darcel in a movie, and loved her name Denise. Many years later I had a daughter and named her Denise in honor. My daughter has been told why she got the name.
She was a beautiful woman. My condolences to her family.
I am sorry for your loss. May the peace of God help you all to cope and endure these difficult days.
Westward the Women was my favorite movie starring Denise - she was a great and beautiful actress! Prayers to the family and I pray the fond memories will help to ease your pain in the coming days.
I am sorry to learn of Ms Darcel's passing and wish to express my sympathy to the family. I also just saw Westward the Women on tv the other day and she was wonderful in that role. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
May the God of all comfort be with you at this time of grief, and may the memories of Denise stay close to your heart. Psalma 46:1 Joanna
My toughts are with the family. It happened that very recently she's been a wonderful source of inspiration to me for my current writinh. I talked to her last year on the phone and she was a sweet person. May she dance again in our memory
My mother was born in France and was a huge fan of Ms. Darcel's. She met her in Toledo, Ohio when she had a stop there on the train west or when she appeared in Toledo. Not sure which, but I know it was at the train station. She wanted to name me Denise, but my father won with Barbara Yvonne. Enjoyed her films throughout the years, may she rest in peace.
To Miss Darcel's Family: I am sorry to learn of her passing. Just a few days ago I watched again one of my favorite movies "Westward the Women." Talk about your strong lady...she personified it in that movie! Years ago when she lived in Las Vegas, I wrote to her for an autograph on a picture I would send her. I did not hear back sadly. May she RIP.
I am so sorry to learn of your mother's passing. I just wanted to share a memory with you. When I was growing up in Pa. my mother always spoke of Denise. She told us kids how she was on the same ship in 1947 and how they arrived in New York together. I believe the ship left from Bremerhaven and I don't remember the name, do you? My mother was pregnant with me and very ill. She also had to take care of a toddler (My sister) and your mother was so kind to her, helping her and holding my sister while my mother ran to the bathroom to throw up. They had several conversations about being "army wives and war brides " and they spoke of their lives in Europe. My mother was born in Poland but lived in Germany and later Leige, Belgium where she met my american father.
She must have tod my mom that she had a sister named Helene, because that's what my mom named me. Anyway, your mother was kind to my mom at a very difficult time in her life and I just wanted you to know that. By the way, my mom passed 3 years ago so I know how it feels to lose a mother. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
May the "Hearer of prayer" be with the family at this difficult time. Psalm 65:2
to the family of Ms.
Denise was a lovely lady..worked with my husband in NJ..very kind and very nice!..May God rest her soul.
RIP ,,, I was born in 1957 and named for her ... what a beautiful woman.
I was born in 1959 and my name was chosen by my Father (born in 1922). He had told me that I was named after a Hollywood Actress. May your memories carry you through the difficult times experienced after the loss of a parent.
To Ms. Darcel's sons: Your Mother was a very good actress and a beautiful lady. She has many fans who have missed seeing her in the movies. May she rest in peace. JM Austerlitz NY
I just saw the movie, Westward the Women recently. We have lost a beautiful actress!
