Maria Anne Denker Obituary
Maria Anne Denker, beloved mother of Debra Denker of Santa Fe, NM, passed peacefully and fearlessly into the Light on July 27, 2015, at the age of 88. Maria was the beloved wife of the late Joseph Albert Denker. Her career life included food prep for commercials, costuming for the TV show, Sam Simian: Secret Chimp, and helping her husband run his advertising agency for 10 years. A true people-to-people ambassador, Maria traveled to 49 countries on five continents. Her lifetime altitude record was 17,100 ft., at the original Everest Base Camp, at age 58. Always athletic and active, Maria was a longtime member of the Los Angeles Tennis Club and was nationally ranked in senior tennis in her 70's. She was passionate about many things including cats, gourmet cooking, reading, ecology, liberal politics, and family. In memory of Maria, please do something kind for a human, an animal, or the earth.
