MOREY DENISE DUPUIS Age 57, passed away suddenly on January 30. Dearest wife of Thomas for 29 years. Loving mother of Erin. Dear daughter of Robert and Jean Dupuis. Dear sister of Diane Dupuis (Steve Carey) and aunt of Fiona and Miles. Dear daughter-in-law of Virginia Morey. Denise is also survived by her supportive extended family including her cousins, brothers- and sisters-in-law and nieces and nephews who love her and have been forever touched by her kindness, generous nature and unforgettable smile and laugh. Denise took great pride in her beautiful flower garden and was looking forward to gardening again this spring. She enjoyed the outdoors, hiking and her summer vacations on the Great Lakes with her family and rescue dog Scout. She was an accomplished photographer, musician and calligraphist and a superb writer, whose wit and quips were unsurpassed. Denise would often surprise everyone with her extensive knowledge in many areas and was never far from a book or newspaper. She was a vocal supporter of environmental causes and animal rights, which are values she instilled early on in her daughter's life. She was also a proud Democrat and a proponent of progressive issues and fairness for all. Denise cherished the simple things in life and her family and friends always came first. She will be sorely missed by her fellow colleagues and students in the East Detroit Public Schools District, where she has been a dedicated educator since 1995. Denise was awarded Educator of the Year Elementary Division in 2009 for her uncompromising hard work, devotion to her students and her above and beyond dedication to the district. As a union representative, she ensured that her fellow union members were updated on important issues and was a consummate supporter of the district and her union. Denise was the brightest, kindest and gentlest soul in the lives of everyone who was touched by her and will be forever loved and remembered. The family is appreciative of and will accept prayers on her behalf. A memorial service will be announced at a later date.

Denise was a wonderful, beautiful lady. She made everyone she met feel special and gave so much of herself. I feel blessed that I was a part of her life. She will be greatly missed.
Denise was the first person I worked with as a volunteer at EDPS before I became an employee of the district. I then had the honor to work with her everyday. There was no one better to learn from and I will cherish those times. Denise was so sweet. She wore her heart on her sleeve. I will miss her dearly.
Denise, how shocked I was to hear of your passing. I so enjoyed and appreciated working with you and the conversations we had about how to best help the students soar. May you rest in peace knowing the difference you made is the lives of so many people personally and professionally!
Sparkling eyes, bright smile, passionate and kindful soul are just a few of the ways I will remember my dear Sister (in-law). I will miss our talks and the jokes that we shared. I will continue to support and be there always for your loving Husband and beautiful Daughter. I will also give an extra hug to Scout.
Love you Denise. Thanks for being such a loyal friend. I know I will see you again. Amy
Denise was the kindest, gentlest soul I ever knew. As the youngest of the five cousins, I often felt left out. Denise ALWAYS went out of her way to make me feel special. I love you Neesie! Rest in peace sweetie.
Beautiful person inside and out! Loving and kind! Soft, sweet voice and always brightened any room she entered! RIP Aunt Denise, You will truly be missed!
Denise was a beautiful person. I so enjoyed going in her room and talking with her about the day, music, etc. She was always a bright spot. I will miss her.
Denise, my special buddy, what a treasure you were to me! Always kind, humble, modest and the kindest person I've ever met. I loved visiting you through the 'secret passage' that separated our rooms and sharing even the silliest things. I can still hear your laughter and see your precious smile. Love you my friend!
Denise, May you be held in the arms of the one who made you and know how wonderful you are at last. Those of us who knew you have always known...
Denise, you were so pure of spirit and always saw the best in others. Your smile and laugh were contagious and you lived in the light of love. You touched so many lives and I am grateful to have had you as a Sister (in-law). I love you.
I really didn't know Denise, but everyone I do know that knew her spoke very highly of her. My thoughts & prayers are with you in the loss of Denise.
Oh my dear Denise. I hadn't seen her in many years, but the love I have for her, the happy and funny memories I have of the Dupuis and Gluskin families' adventures together will always be with me. Denise and I were playmates, and all I remember is having fun and her sweet voice. My heart aches so, but I know I'm blessed that Denise was a part of my life.
Such a wonderful person and such a wonderful legacy. Loving wishes to all whose lives were blessed by her gracious spirit.
A fine, fine person for whom the world is lessened in their absence, but graced by their memory.
Dear Jean, Bob, Tom and Diane, I enjoyed hearing your wonderful voices today, Jean and Bob, despite the terrible news of your loss. I am thinking of you all. God Bless You! Ann Rushfeldt (former next door neighbor to Jean and Bob)
Happy Birthday dearest friend! I was so lucky to know you.
