Denise Johnson
"The Coolest Lady of our Lives!" Denise was born in Cleveland, Ohio to Larry and Gerry Reinhard. She was the older sister of Susan Nagy and Alan Reinhard. Her fantastic personality was shaped by her wonderful family and friends. She met her husband Pat while both attending Midpark High School.
Denise and Pat fell in love and moved to San Francisco in 1972 and began a new chapter in life together. She was the General Mgr. of Napa Valley Winery Exchange where she became one of the most respected and loved women in the Wine industry. Her greatest love was her family, her husband Pat, daughter Nicole, son Casey and her best buddy Smokey.
Everyone she touched loved her smile, her unselfishness and her zest for life. Being a well-respected wine judge, camping in Yosemite, writing short stories and being involved in the music business were some of her greatest joys. She will be missed by everyone who knew and loved her. "She was the best mom ever!"
