Denise Lynn Raymond Jackson

Denise Lynn Raymond Jackson strolled into heaven with her Lord on the 25th of May, 2019 after a lengthy debilitating illness. She was born July 24, 1967 in Santa Monica, California to Shirley (Pennington) and Wayne Raymond. Denise moved with her family to Sunray, Texas where she graduated and where she was a star track athlete. She lived most of her life in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma where she worked as a dental assistant. Denise loved the Texas Longhorns, anything POLO, and being the life of party. She was a beautiful, sassy, and charismatic woman who lived her life to the fullest even after her diagnosis. She returned to the Panhandle of Texas in 2012. The family would like to recognize and thank all of the wonderful caregivers that have provided loving care for Denise during her prolonged illness. Denise is preceded in death by her parents, Shirley and Wayne Raymond and her sister, Jennifer Sklar.
