Denise E. Litle

UPPER ARLINGTON: Denise E. Litle, age 59, took her late husband's hand and joined the Lord Wednesday afternoon after defying the odds in her battle against pancreatic cancer. She passed away with family, friends, and laughter in the room.

Always full of determination and hope, she was preceded in death by her husband, John F. Litle Jr., her parents, Eileen Grimes Wein and C. Thomas Wein; and is survived by her loving children, April (David) Holdinghaus of Salida, Colorado and John Litle III, of Zanesville; sisters, Grace Wein, Maureen (Michael) Keebaugh, and Carol Wenstadt; nieces, Jeri, Beth, Nicole, Brooke, and Shannon; nephews, Tommy (deceased), Michael, Phillip, Jeff and Ben; and a huge, loving, supportive extended family. She will see her beloved friends again in a better place, and specially thanks Margaret for her tireless devotion throughout her time of need. Many will remember Denise's selflessness, as she gave without slightest thought of return, made strangers into friends and friends into family.

She was active with the Bishop Rosecrans Foundation, St. Nicholas Parish, St. Nicholas and Rosecrans School Boards, loved watching Rosecrans basketball, and Notre Dame Football. Denise moved to Columbus later in life where she earned her Master's Degree while working at the Ohio Department of Education and where she joined St. Andrews Parish.

Viewing will be held at SCHOEDINGER NORTHWEST CHAPEL, 1740 Zollinger Road, Upper Arlington, on Monday, August 25, 2014 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Father Nick Droll will celebrate a Mass of Christian Burial at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at St. Andrew Catholic Church, 1899 McCoy Rd. in Upper Arlington with a Traditional Irish Wake welcome to all who cared for her following immediately thereafter at her nearby home. Food, drink and entertainment will be provided.
