Andrea Denise Maker
July 29, 1967 – April 21, 2023
It is with deep sorrow that the families of Denise “Dee” announce her sudden passing at the Hamilton General Hospital at the tender age of 55. Denise is the daughter of Janice Bray, Don (Marg) Maker, and a big sister to Sandra (Greg) Dremak, and Don Maker (Kim Bretz). She was also a very special aunt to Hayden Denton, Kaitlynn (Carl) Madden, and a great aunt to Ashton, Eden and Raven.
Denise had the biggest of hearts and would help everyone and anyone out as much as she possibly could. Her love for her family, friends and animals was known to all that knew and loved her. She was born and raised in Brantford, but her free spirit led her to spend parts of her life in Chicago and Florida. In 1998 she decided that she had to come home to be with her family, but her free spirit never left.
In the last few years Denise volunteered her services and art abilities to several organizations that were special to her. Denise did things “her” way right up to the end, and didn’t care what anyone else thought.
At Denise’s request no services will be held, and a cremation will take place. A private family celebration of life will be held at a later date. Donations in lieu of flowers/cards can be made to:
