Short_Denise(1960 - 2014) - A shining light has been extinguished. It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved “Nee Nee” on August 30, 2014.

Denise Short was an inspiration to us all as she reached so many goals throughout her life and faced her illness with strength, determination and dignity.

Born on June 15, 1960, Denise made so many friends and achieved countless milestones in her short 54 years. Her years of sports included completing an Iron Man (at age 47), The Boston Marathon, The Cabot Trail Relay, numerous triathlons and hundreds of local charity and fun runs.

She loved her Holimont family in Ellicottville, NY, where she spent every winter skiing. From her early childhood Denise was an avid golfer. Cycling became a passion that she enjoyed with so many dear friends. One of her greatest triumphs was completing The Ride to Conquer Cancer while undergoing cancer treatments.

Denise had a passion for travelling and throughout her illness managed to travel extensively. Her trips to France, England, Ireland, Wales, Costa Rica, Anguilla and Florida were part of the strength that kept her going.
Denise was adored and loved by her two sons, Alex and Connor and their father Tom. She leaves behind her loving father Keith Walker and was predeceased by her mother Diana. Both her sister Keltie (Bruce) Law and brother Kevin (Denise) Walker will miss Nee Nee forever.

Denise has 9 nieces and nephews, Brianne and Adam Law, Danielle, Elyse and Keith Walker, Keeley and Kate Turbitt and Aidan Kneeshaw and Avalon Short who admired and loved their aunt, as well many cousins and in-laws who will miss the warmth of her smile. Denise is also survived by her father-in-law, Hugh Short and predeceased by her mother-in-law, Mona.

Denise also has an abundance of incredible friends who have supported her throughout her entire life but especially in her recent fight with cancer. Their friendship, love and support have helped tremendously to ease the burden of her illness.

We are eternally grateful to the “dream team” of Julie and Jenn from Calacare and all of the incredible health care workers, doctors and nurses, especially Dr. Lynn Benjamin, Dr. Carol Cooper and Dr. Sudha Rajagopal.

Our lives are fuller and richer for having had Denise in it, and now heaven has one more angel.

Arrangements out of Burlington. Please join us in a celebration of Denise’s life on Friday, September 5th at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Ancaster, Ontario at 11:00 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, if you wish, please consider a donation to Kidsport Canada ( or your favourite charity.
