It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Denise Marie Halliwell, age 64, on Saturday, April 9, 2022. Denise was born to Armand and Antoinette (nee Leclaire) Beauchesne on July 8, 1957, at Gravelbourg, SK. She was a sister to René, Irene, and a twin to Doris. Denise attended Gravelbourg School. In 1977, she began working at the local drug store; she worked there for approximately nine months and then began her career at the Gravelbourg Credit Union. Denise married the love of her life, Don Halliwell, on June 28, 1986. They were blessed with two children, Raylene and Steven. Denise took time away from work to stay home and care for her children. She rented a house in Gravelbourg and opened a daycare, which she ran for six years. Once Raylene and Steven were in school, Denise returned to the Gravelbourg Credit Union.
