Denise L. Greenfield

Denise Louise Greenfield, 73, of Ashton, IL passed away on July 22, 2023. Denise was born on July 17, 1950 in Rochelle, IL to Mike and Jackie (Wisman) Witzel.

Denise is a lifelong member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Ashton. She lived in Ashton her whole life and graduated from Ashton High School in 1968. Denise married Terry Greenfield on August 31, 1969 and were married almost 54 years.

Denise was a farm wife, raising her 3 daughters at home, and would volunteer at the church and in the school cafeteria. She also worked for Price’s Flowers and Merlin’s Flowers. She also visited 49 out of the 50 states, as she never made it to Oklahoma thanks to dad’s stubbornness.

Denise is survived by her husband, Terry; 3 daughters, Jennifer (Gregory) Cissna of Ashton, IL, Gina (Gregory) Grisham of Bloomington, IL and Rebecca (Walter) Roell of Wheaton, IL; 2 granddaughters, Vivian and Alice Roell of Wheaton, IL; as well as a brother, Jon (Faith) Witzel of Hendersonville, NC.

Denise is preceded in death by her parents.
