Denise E. (DeBreceny) Sotak, 70, of Green Valley, was called to her heavenly home on Sept. 21, 2021, surrounded by her loved ones.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Michael J. Sotak. She is survived by her children, Sally (Anthony), Bernadette (Matt), Stacy (Asa) and Michael (Alison); grandchildren Natalie, Samuel, Kellan and Lucy, and brother Brian DeBreceny, as well as countless extended family and friends.

We all knew Denise for her bright smile and dimples, laughter and love of silly jokes. She had an open heart to everyone she met. She was an avid collector of anything giraffe related and a lover of water aerobics. Her happiest moments were with her treat and coffee, spending time with her children, grandchildren and friends or in the water! She will be remembered always and missed forever.

Services will be at Our Lady of the Valley Church in Green Valley on Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2021 at 10 am followed by a reception at Casa Paloma II recreation center. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the church at
