I had the pleasure of meeting Dean Denice Denton while I was a student at the University of Washington. I had won a raffle during my freshman year and won lunch with the Dean. I was very honored. Three months after I won the raffle, I got to sit down with the Dean and talk to her about my concerns regarding women, engineering, and career. I will always remember her for telling me that if anyone could achieve the engineering dream, I could. I felt very honored and truly feel that I am living my dream. My thoughts and prayers go to Dr. Denton and her family. She will be greatly missed.

Dear Gretchen,

Needless to say, I was saddened to read of Denice's untimely death. What words can really provide any real comfort at such a time? If there actually are any, they've escaped me. I hold you, and she, in my heart and thoughts.
Blessings.

Women in general have so few role models of the stature and quality of Dr. Denice Denton, but this is especially true of women in academe, in science, engineering and technology fields, and lesbians. I did not know Dr. Denton personally, but I feel a terrible loss at her passing and a terrible pain for the struggle she was enduring. In memory of all her hard work and awe-inspiring accomplishments, I will keep her in my heart and mind to follow her many enduring examples of fighting the good fight. As Mother Jones said, “pray for the dead and fight like hell for the living” – I think Dr. Denton would want it that way.

I'm deeply saddened by the loss of Professor Denton. I was lucky enough to have been an engineering student of hers at the University of Wisconsin. Word of her passion, enthusiasm, and wit spread quickly at the campus, and students from other classes would regularly attend her outstanding lectures always resulting in a standing-room-only hall. She was easily my favorite professor at the university. She will be missed.
