Denise D. Byrnes
April 05, 1951 ‒ July 21, 2020
Denise D. Byrnes, 69, of Fredericktown passed away on Tuesday morning, July 21, 2020 at her home. She was born on April 5, 1951 in Youngstown to the late Robert G. and Jeanne R. (Keller) Byrnes.
In 1991, Denise (Dee) obtained her PhD from Ohio State University. She then spent the next 29 years in a fulfilling position as Associate Professor, Computer Science, Wooster College. Dee always said the reason she never retired from Wooster was simply, “I love the students”. Dee will be remembered for her love of animals: her horses, dogs, cats, birds and fish, She also loved gardening, skiing, horseback riding, mowing, splitting wood, camping, and enjoying nature from her beautiful wooded property in rural Morrow County. Dee was a cherished, loyal, and fun-loving friend, and a dear sister. She will always be in our hearts and thoughts for her quirky sense of humor, her intelligence and independence, her matter of factness, and “just get it done” attitude.
Denise is survived by her sisters, Dianne Russell of Fredericktown and Sharon Smith of Atlanta, GA.
In following with Denise’s wish, there will not be any service.
