August 11, 1951 - October 31, 2012
In the early morning hours of October 31, 2012, Denise Celina Gilliland passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her loving family. Beloved wife of the late Bruce Gilliland. Loving mother to Mark (Alexandra), Jennifer (Brad) and Brent (Carole). An amazing Grandma D to Ayla, Shea and Danica. Cherished daughter of Roger and Rita (2012). Dear sister to Gisele (Normand), Denis (Margo), Rheal (2008), Lynne and Johanne. She will also be missed by all her nieces, nephews and extended family. Denise was the first woman to graduate from her barber school 41 years ago, and went on to open her own shop. After 31 years, she sadly closed her doors as her health declined. She was forever proud of her shop. The family would like to thank everyone for their business and friendship over the years. Special thanks to Dr. Terry Brennan, Dr. Brenda Brennan and Dr. Wheatley Price, as well as nurses Lynn, Anne Marie, Janet and Sue for their exceptional care of Denise in her last days, as well as her good friend and nurse Bessie Snow.
