Marlyce (Marty) A. Denney

In Memory of

Marlyce (Marty) A. Denney

November 3, 1942 - July 22, 2018


Marty “Nana” Denney born on November 3, 1942 in Chillhowee, MO to Estel and Esther Brown, passed away on July 22, 2018 at St. Luke’s Hospital on the Plaza due to an Aneurysm.

She is survived by her husband, Howard Denney of 15 years; daughters, Kelly and husband Jim
Wenninghoff, Shelli and husband Michael Cooney; Step-daughter, Stacey and husband Mark Wilson, daughter, Amy Cripe; 5 grandchildren; and 4 great-grandchildren.

She was one of those amazing people that never met a stranger, could make all those she came into contact with feel like the most important person in the room and spread unconditional love wherever she went. She loved her husband, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, as well as many “honorary” family members that started out as friends or neighbors. She loved to travel and was known far and wide as an excellent baker. She would bring Christmaxs breads and cookies to her doctor’s offices, neighbors, friends and family, always choosing their favorites for each container. She was even known to ship these packages all over the country to those that had moved away. She would go out of her way to help others, sometimes to the detriment of her own health.

There will be a Celebration of Life held on Sunday August 26th from 1-4pm at the Park Ridge Clubhouse at 4309 NE Park Ridge Dr. – Lee’s Summit, MO 64064. A private graveside service will be held for family members. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to Hope House at

Oh, Marty. I still can’t believe you’re gone. It seems like every day now, I think of another reason why I’ll miss you. One very big thing I’ll miss is having you text me to see if I’m okay when you haven’t seen or heard from me for a while. You and Howard were just across the back yard from me and it was comforting to know someone was looking out for me. I’ll miss seeing you out in the yard watering your flowers or seeing you in your car going somewhere…you were always going somewhere! I’ll miss going to lunch and movies with you occasionally and I’ll sure miss your baking at the holidays. I’ll really miss YOU! My deepest sympathies to Howard and all the family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. {{hugs}}

We are all just heartbroken. I don’t know what we will do without your smiling face in our lives. We will just have to smile more to make up your share. We love you, Marty. Mark, Stacey, Eryn, and Molly
