Letha Denise Malone

  • BORN: May 2, 1965
  • DIED: March 29, 2018
  • LOCATION: Catawba Community, West Virginia

Letha Denise Malone went home to heaven on Thursday, March 29, 2018 surrounded by her family who loved her dearly. She joined her parents, the late Russell and Mary Belle (Williams) Malone. Denise was born on May 2, 1965 and lived her entire life in the Catawba Community.
Denise is survived by her sister, Belinda Woody, and her brothers and sisters-in-laws Dwayne and Jerry Ann Malone, and Mark and Mary Malone.
Also surviving are nieces and nephews Jennifer and Michael Derby, Donnie and Sandy Malone, Michelle and Brian Winebrenner, Crystal and Mike Webb, Tina and Paul Cartwright, Greg and Johnna Shahan, James and Teresa Shahan, and Tim and Stephanie Shahan. Denise was "Aunt Dee Dee" to many great nieces and nephews, including Kherissa, Jenna, Tyler, Travis, Kimberly, Bella and Jacob. Denise is also survived by two very special aunts, Marlene Knox of Fairmont and Gladys Jean Morris of Reader. Grace Helton, her cousin, was her companion, caregiver, and guardian angel for the last ten years. Numerous cousins and lifelong friends also survive Denise.
Denise attended Fairmont Senior High School and Webster Business College. She had many hobbies, including reading, crocheting, crafts, and making jewelry. She loved spending time with her family, especially being at the cabin by the river or out on the boat with her parents. Her cockatiel "Katie" kept her company and filled her days with happiness.
Denise was born with Cerebral Palsy and there were many people who helped with her journey through life. There are too many people to name, but we would especially like to thank Marlene Knox and her entire family, her cousin Louisa Harrison and her family, Charlotte Williams, Donna and the late Larry King, and most of all we thank Gracie for everything she has done for Denise. She made it possible for her to live at home independently and spent countless nights watching over her in the hospital.
The Malone family would like to thank every person who supported Denise in her battle with Angiosarcoma for the past five years. We appreciate the numerous doctors in Morgantown and Pittsburgh who treated her, but most especially Dr. Miklos Auber, who gave her so much care and compassion in her final months. Words cannot express our thanks to the nurses and staff at the WVU cancer Center and nine west oncology floor, the Mon General cancer center and oncology floor, and the Mon General Wound Center. Thanks to the Marion County Rescue Squad and the Grant Town EMS, whose members went above and beyond their duties to become caring friends to Denise. A special Thank you to the Amedisys Hospice nurses who helped Denise and her family through her final days with so much kindness and compassion.
Friends and family may call at the Carpenter & Ford Funeral Home, 209 Merchant Street, Fairmont on Monday from 1pm to8pm and on Tuesday from 11am to 1pm. The funeral service will be at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 3, 2018 at the funeral home, with Pastor Michael Delligatti officiating. Interment will follow at the Catawba Cemetery.
