Patricia Denton

August 28, 1943 - June 12, 2016

Patricia Lou (McKinney) Denton, 72, of Des Moines, passed away on June 12, 2016. Visitation will take place Thursday, June 16, 2016 from 6:00-7:00 P.M. at Merle Hay Funeral Home in Des Moines. The funeral service will follow the visitation at 7:00 P.M. also at Merle Hay Funeral Home in Des Moines. Interment at Chapel Hill will occur at a later date.

Patricia is survived by her friend and former husband, Wayne Denton; her son Mike (Karen) Routh; step-sons Tony and Tyler (Jess) Denton; grandchildren Kristen, Kyle, Cameron, Cory R., Brady, Cory D., Riot, Early and Navy; and her four-legged companion Hannah.

Patricia is preceded in death by her parents, Ralph and Kathryn; and also by three of her furry children, Schlotzsky, Stormy, and Hank.

Patricia will be remembered for her sass and independence, as well as her sense of humor. She enjoyed watching the shows Cops, Judge Judy and Jerry Springer. Patricia had a unique sense of ‘style’ that will never be forgotten. She always had a change of hair color, funky glasses, and gaudy rings. This sense of style could be attributed to her attendance at cosmetology school. Cosmetology school was just one career path that Patricia chose to go down. She also worked as a secretary, owned 3 restaurants, co-owned a wine and gift store with her son, and was an entrepreneur. Outside of these varying career interests, Patricia also enjoyed sewing, crocheting, gardening, and “junking.”

She will be missed.
