Denise M. Kura

Denise Marie Kura left this world to be with our Lord on Sunday, May 30. She was born on August 18, 1954, to Dallas and Joan Harney in Anderson, Indiana and grew up in Port Arthur, Texas.

Denise loved the Lord, and this love was made clear to everyone she came in contact with. She was a gifted and compassionate teacher for twenty-eight years, and in her free time she enjoyed studying the Bible with her BSF group. She loved her family fiercely and they are left with wonderful memories of great times spent together. Her greatest love, second to her love for the Lord, was for her husband, Randy.

In a conversation before her death, Denise stated, “I like what we said about my death being a homecoming with the Lord and my loved ones.”

Survivors include her children; Jonathan and Alison Naas, four wonderful grandchildren; Olivia Martinez, Audrey Martinez, Lauren Naas, and Will Naas; her sister, Deborah Harney (Jeanne); and her beloved husband of 25 years, Randy Kura. Denise was also blessed in life with many dear and loving friends who she adored and treasured.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Dallas and Joan, and her previous husband, Tom McGinley.

    As I reflect on my memories of Denise, one word keeps popping in my head-LOVE! Denise was the embodiment of love! She gave it so freely and if you were lucky enough to receive it-you never forgot it! Her love will remain in my heart always!

    We were blessed to have Denise in our family, and we loved her so much. Denise was first married to our little brother, Tom, and after he passed, we were blessed that Denise brought Randy into our family. We will always treasure our wonderful memories with Denise, from all of our loving family holidays together, accompanied with our annual champagne and potato chip New Year's Eve parties, to our fun filled ocean and river cruises when we traveled all over the world. Wherever Denise went, her smile and laugh lit up the room with her love. Denise was my beloved “Neesie-come”, and I will deeply love her today, tomorrow, and always.

    Oh, how joyous Heaven will be to have Denise home. We will miss her deeply. All, who crossed her path quickly learned her worth, I met Denise at Regina-Howell Elem. Her room was my most favorite to visit. She loved the students in her care. She was a beacon of light in her career. Her smile, her laugh, her Godly advice, will remain with me, always.

    I was blessed to be in a BSF group with Denise two years ago. Her beautiful spirit and love for the Word of God was evident. Denise had a peace about her illness and her hope was completely in the promises and faithfulness of our redeemer, Jesus Christ. My heartfelt condolences to her family who she always spoke of so fondly. 1 Corinthians 13:12

    My deepest sympathy to the family of Denise. I became acquainted with Denise through a mutual friend when they would frequent the store I worked at on their "Margarita Day" with her Monterey girls. Denise was one of those truly kind people. Sweet, happy, and positive is how I remember her and always so pretty. God bless her family and her Monterey girlfriends in their grief. May she rest in peace free if pain.

    My deepest sympathy to Randy and the rest of Denise's loved ones. I feel truly blessed to have had her in my life for 33 years. She was always a bright spot in the day. Her beautiful smile could light up the room.. I treasure each one of those "Monterrey Girls" lunches, We never seemed to run out of things to talk about, I will miss my dear friend, I loved her dearly.
