Denise C. Chenoweth, 86, of Skidmore, died Thursday, November 7, 2019, in Corpus Christi where she had been living during her struggle with Alzheimer's/dementia.
Ms. Chenoweth was born on January 5, 1933, in Los Angeles, Texas, to Levert Voltair and Barbara Denise (Campion) Chenoweth. She was an avid horsewoman, breaking, riding and showing her horses, and rode for years with the South Texas Trail Riders on their annual trek to San Antonio. She retired from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, working at both the McConnell and Garza West Units in Beeville where she was known as "Miss C." She traveled extensively with Rockport Tours and made many friends throughout her travels. She enjoyed listening and singing along to old country music and hymns, and relaxed with her Trans-Siberian Orchestra tapes or other classical music.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and Weston J. Kimball, Sr. and William Doubrava.
Survivors include her children, Weston J. (Wendy) Kimball, Jr., Barbara Kimball, Buster (Dorothy) Kimball, JoDee Garcia and Juanita Kimball (Julio); 11 grandchildren; and 19 great-grandchildren.
