Obituary for Denice Arlene Rock

Denice A. Rock, age 58 of Omaha, former resident of Council Bluffs passed away May 5, 2018. She was born in Council Bluffs to Gerald and Delores (Verlee) Rock.
Denice is survived by her children Steven, Chelsea and Nolan her daughter-in-law Whitney grandchildren Mason and Marshall; sisters Darlene and Deb and brother Daniel; niece Dawn and nephew Sean and many more extended family members.

Denise graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School and worked at US West/Quest for over 20 years. She made many friends there and loved to make her coworkers laugh with jokes and pranks. She continued to work in customer service for the rest of her life and enjoyed helping people.
She spent much of her free time with her children rollerblading, to the mall and movies. She loved to have big holidays and birthday celebrations with many decorations and presents. She loved movies, appreciated the wonderful words created within them, and was fascinated by what went into making them. She loved books and was an avid reader. She loved flowers and to garden. She loved to dance, even if just in the car. She loved to travel and enjoyed trips to California, Oregon, New York, Jamaica and Colorado.
She suffered with depression for most of her life and fought it the best she could, for as long as she could. Despite her own suffering, she liked to make other people laugh and feel good. She was very religious and spiritual, and held her faith even until the end.
Denice will always be remembered for her smile, the love she had for her family, and her strength to carry on through life despite immense adversity.
“Sometimes a human’s clay is not strong enough to take the water; Human beings can carry the divine only sometimes.” - Friedrich Holderlin, Bread & Wine (Part 7)
