Denise Kreps Obituary
An open letter to the Willits community.
Denise Kreps, my sister, died at home in Willits on Friday, June 9th.
Denise was born October 15, 1954 in San Luis Obispo and lived in various locations throughout California her whole life. We both grew up in the SF Bay Area where she became a Contra Costa County deputy sheriff. Later she lived in San Diego for several years before moving to Willits to be near our mom.
Denise was a very intelligent, introspective person and had several hobbies. Over the years she enjoyed traveling by train and taking various cruises. She was very service-to-others and people oriented….always there to give a hand. She helped with the Harrah Senior Center and other local efforts. She was incredibly attentive to our mom. They both held a special bond with one another.
She did not want a service, but wanted the community to know how much she cherished living here. Her words from her final instructions; " I would not mind a short note that I have passed – along with a message from me that I wish everyone well. I do not need a long historical account of who I was or what I did. Just a big thank you to Willits for having me as part of their community. I enjoyed my time here, and blessings to everyone."
Her death was very untimely and created shock throughout. Our mother, Kathy Hutchinson, still resides in Willits.
She requested in lieu of flowers that any donations go to the Harrah Senior Center in Willits.
Arrangements under the care and direction of Anker-Lucier Mortuary.
