Denise Penn Porter, 61, passed away June 19, 2014.
Born in Macon, GA, Denise was a daughter of the late James and Sara Penn. She was a devoted stay-at-home mom while her children were in school; and later was employed with Greenville County Probate Court for 16 years issuing marriage licenses, which she loved because she felt like she was able to share in the happiest times in peoples' lives. Denise was an avid reader, and loved gardening, music, the beach and Christmas. She had a quick wit and was always ready with a sarcastic remark.
Surviving are two daughters, Tara Wasson and husband Barney, Jr. of Gray Court, and Holland Barfield and husband Justin of Easley; six grandchildren, Caroline, Luke, Gabby, Tatum, Dawson, and Reid; her dearest friend, Pam Cowdery; two sisters and one brother, Debra, Donna and Jim.
A memorial service will be held at 4 PM, Sun., Jun. 22 at Tapestry Church, 25 Woods Lake Rd. Cremation Society of SC-Westville
