Denise C. Wenner, 83, Green Bay, passed away Saturday, March 10, 2018. She was born February 16, 1935 in Brooklyn, NY to James and Elizabeth (Scherer) Burke. On August 13, 1983 Denise married Ray Wenner in Clearwater, FL.
After graduating from Duke University, the University of South Florida, and Nova University, with her bachelors and masters degree, Denise became a teacher in the state of Florida. In her free time she enjoyed reading, swimming, and spending time with her husband, Ray. Denise was also a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish.

Then during the 80s, she and Ray moved to South Florida and taught in the Broward County school system for ten years before retiring together to Crivitz, Wi.
It was a second marriage for both Ray and Dee and became a “dream come true love story” for 34 years. Together they traveled several times to Europe, and particularly loved their trips to Garmische, Germany
