Denise West Gallant passed on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 12:40 PM at Del Sol Hospital in El Paso, TX due to Pulmonary Embolisms.  She went painlessly.

Denise was a two time leukemia survivor and battled through many ailments.  She had nothing but love for anyone and everyone.  Denise was as special as love itself.  She did many different types of art and donated to help the Geronimo Springs Museum and Sierra Vista Hospital.

Few know the true hero she was and how much she helped women’s protection from abuse.  Denise is truly a genuine hero and should be remembered as such!

Survivors include her only true love of 20 years, Rex Gallant; her daughter, Shannon and husband, Mike; her son, Michael and wife, Christine; grandchildren – Gabriel, Nicholas, Anthony, Jeffrey, Alli, Kaitaya, Maya; great-grandson, Charlie; mother, Frances Wolfinger of Sebring, FL; brothers – Brian Hilger and wife, JoAnn and David Diegel and wife, Lisa; and her buddy dogs – Swab and Waggles.

Denise was deeply spiritual and often prayed with strangers.  She just had a special magnetism to everyone who met her, and often people would just come up and ask to know her.  She never denied anyone of special love or spiritual prayer.  She is a true loss to the world and all who knew her.  Prayers are all that’s asked.

A simple private family ceremony was held on March 22, 2017 at Kirikos Family Funeral Home.

“God bless you all and remember to always love each other.”  DWG.

    I'm sorry we live so far away and I never got to know you. My brother Rex thinks the world of you and from what he tells me you sound like a very special spirit. I pray that you will find rest, peace, and happiness as you continue in your next life with Jesus.

    Denise, you were truly a wonderful woman. We didn't get to spend much time together, but I'll always remember getting to know you on vacation in Colorado. You were funny, intelligent, and caring and I'll never forget the fun times from that trip. Thank you for being there for my uncle Rex. You will be greatly missed.

    You were so loved--by me and by all that knew you. I will miss our talks and our laughs. Rex will take care of the quilt that I made for you. Until we meet again, my dear friend.

    Buenos dias mi nombre es Ana se que usted y su familia no me conoce pero solo quiero darles mis condolencias a usted y su familia por la perdida de su ser amado, se lo que es pasar por una perdida así y por eso me gustaria compartir con usted una promesa biblica que me a ayudado mucho cuando e perdido un ser querido en la muerte, y es la premesa esperanzadora que aparece en el texto bíblico de Revelación 21:4 donde dios nos promete que muy pronto acabará con la muerte y todas las cosas que nos causan clamor y dolor pasaran por siempre, entiendo si le cuesta creer en esta promesa pues solo conocemos sobre las resurrecciones que hizo Jesucristo y ninguno de las personas que vivieron en su tiempo viven hoy para decirnos, yo las vi y creo en ellas,pero la biblia es un libro que da detalles de las promesas que dios nos hace para ayudarnos a mejorar nuestra vida y en ella misma dice que él es un dios que no puede mentir pues en él no se encuentra ningun engaño ,asi que ¡cuanto consuelo nos da estas promesas esperanzadoras que el nos hace! A mi y mi familia nos han ayudado mucho a sentir y creer que nuestros seres amados solo estan dormidos en la muerte y pronto vamos a volver a estar juntos y esto nos llena de consuelo, de todo corazón lo acompaño a usted y su familia en su dolor, no olvide que dios en su infinito amor y bondad jamas se olvidará de ustedes y les traera consuelo, tenga buen día

    Deseo darle mis condolencias poe la muerte de su ser querido y aunque no me conozca me pongo en su lugar pues e pasado por el mismo dolor de perder a un ser querido en la muerte y cuando hemos pasado por una situación así mu familia y yo hemos tenido el consuelo que nos a dado el consuelo de las palabras de el texto biblico de Revelación 21:4 donde dios nos promete que en muy poco tiempo acabará con nuestro mayor enemigo que a azotado hoy y siempre a sido el enemigo numero uno que mas dolor nos a causado y le hablo de la muerte y dios nos promete que acabará con el dolor y el clamor que nos causa y que todo lo que pasamos hoy día que nos causa dolor y llanto jamas volveremos siquiera a recordarlo, estas palabras nos llenan no solo de consuelo si no de esperanza pues todos se despiden de sus seres amados cuando mueren pensando que jamas volveran a verlos pero dios nos pormete volver a verlos cuando muy pronto el vuelva a traerlos a la vida mediante la resurrección, la misma que el promete tanto para las perdonas que mueran fieles a él o los que jamas hayan querido conocerlo o no hayan tenido la posibilidad de hacerlo antes de perderbla vida, deseo de todo corazon que al igual que a mi esta esperanzadora y maravillosa promesa muestra de el amor y el interés de dios por nosotros los seres humanos le haya dado algo de consuelo, tenga muy buen dia
