Denise was born on January 18, 1953, in Marshall, MN to parents Leonard and Dorothy Bernardy. The family moved to New Ulm when Denise was 4 years old.  She graduated from New Ulm High School in 1971. She was involved in gymnastics and placed 3rd in State all-around title. She moved to Litchfield and later accepted a position at LPC/Innovex/Tech Etch in 1982, where she worked for more than 37 years.

She married the love of her life, Bob Redepenning in 1997 and they made a wonderful life together. Denise loved her family very much.  She enjoyed playing with children; especially their grandchildren.

Denise was a very social person. She enjoyed doing crossword puzzles, going for walks, cross-stitching, dancing, music or watching a good Vikings game.  Her family and friends will always remember her as a kind, intelligent, feisty, giving and sweet person.  We were all so lucky to have her in our lives.

All are welcome to attend and celebrate Denise's life.

The family would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
