Beloved sister, aunt, cousin, and friend passed away peacefully with her family and friends by her side on Thursday, July 10, 2019, at Covenant HealthCare - Cooper. She was 60 years old. Denise Marie Ennis was born on February 27, 1959, in Shelby, Michigan, to the late Clifford Allen and Margaret Ann (Markel) Ennis. She was a 1977 graduate of Northport Public Schools. Following graduation, Denise attended Ferris State University for a little over two years. She then transferred to Central Michigan University receiving both her bachelor’s and master’s degree in Education.
