Denise Lillian Tighe

Denise Lillian Tighe was born on Jan. 24th, 1926 in Geneva, Switzerland. She passed away on Jan. 20th, 2014 at Santa Fe Nursing Care Facility in Weatherford, Texas.

Denise moved to the United States in the 1950s with a doctor from New York City whom she married. She lived in Manhattan, New York for many years, a city she professed to love. Denise was manager of a French bank on Wall Street in New York in the 1950’s.

Denise was a smart, classy woman who enjoyed five star restaurants.

Denise came to Mineral Wells, Texas in the 1980s, where she spent the last 25 years of her life. Ms. Tighe was an animal lover.

She selflessly donated thousands of dollars to the SPCA over the years. She especially loved cats of which she had many over the years. There was hardly a stray, homeless cat she failed to help.

Services will be 10 a.m., Monday, Jan. 27, 2014 in the Baum-Carlock-Bumgardner Chapel. Burial will follow in Woodland Park Cemetery. Visitation is Sunday from 6-8 p.m. at the funeral home.

Denise was preceded in death by her former husband. She was also preceded in death by her parents who resided in Switzerland.

Denise is survived by her sister, Susanne Foley of Mineral Wells, Texas, and many friends and relatives who loved her.

Denise is also survived by Bobby the cat, who now resides at Dr. Flint Immel’s veterinarian office in Mineral Wells, Texas.

Denise will always remain in the hearts and minds of her many friends, and relatives in Switzerland who loved her. She will never, ever be forgotten.

  • Sunburn isn't the only sign of summer that can leave you itchy and blistered

    You've got a rash. You quickly rule out the usual suspects: You haven't been gardening or hiking or even picnicking, so it's probably not a plant irritant such as poison ivy or wild parsnip; likewise, it's probably not chiggers or ticks carrying Lyme disease; and you haven't been swimming in a pond, which can harbor the parasite that causes swimmer's itch.
