Denise Karen Wilson 63, of Salinas, CA was called home to be with the Lord January 3, 2018. She passed away at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital.
Denise was born February 27, 1954, In Salinas, CA, the daughter of late Melvin and Geneva Donaghe.
Denise had 5 sisters. She married Steven Wilson Sr. and had 2 boys Steven Jr. and Shane. She lost her husband Steven Sr. in 1995.
Denise worked for Celia Pack for many years before she followed her passion of babysitting kids. I think she may have watched half of the kids in Salinas, she adored everyone’s kids and took care of them as if they were hers.
Denise met her second husband Louie Holguin and together they started their trucking company Flintstone Transport. They ran the company together until he passed away in 2007. Denise continued to run her company until she passed away.
Denise loved to Gamble in her pastime. She was one of the luckiest ladies you could know. She loved spending time with her grandbabies and doted on them always. To know Denise was to love her. She was such a caring giving woman. She would do anything she could to help you.
Denise was a loving mother and grandmother. We are going to miss her so much. She touched so many lives and loved everyone. There was not a person that she met that was not her friend.

Denise was preceded in death by her mother and father Melvin and Geneva Donaghe, Husband, Steven Wilson Sr., Sister, Shirley Richmond and second Husband, Louie Holguin.

Denise is survived by her Son Steve and wife Crystal Wilson, Son Shane Wilson, Grandchildren Deven, Jesse, Shaelynn and Skyler Wilson. Sisters Sharon Poijak, Donna Talarino, Debbie Donaghe, and Michelle Bryant.
