Denean R. DeSantis

March 7, 1976 ~ May 2, 2023 (age 47) 47 Years Old


Denean R. DeSantis, 47, of Eagle, WI passed away on Tuesday, May 2, 2023 at Froedtert Hospital.

Denean was born on March 7, 1976 in Waukesha, WI the daughter of Dean and Kary (Zipfel) Schwartz. She grew up in the Waukesha area and after graduating high school worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant. She was blessed with three loving children, Brittany, Hailee and Kamron and her children were the light of her life. On June 7, 2008 Denean was united in marriage to the love of her life, Anthony DeSantis at the Lofton Chapel in Pewaukee, WI. Denean was funny, loving, and sarcastic and she never hesitated to speak her mind. She was a talented cook and baker and made sure to keep her family well fed. She was also known to tell a corny joke every once in a while. She had a few interests during her life but her best times were spent during family get togethers or holidays. Denean’s loss is heartbreaking to her family, but her memory will live on in the lives of those she leaves behind.

She is survived by: her loving husband, Anthony DeSantis of Eagle, WI; her three dear children, Brittany (Jamar Wilson) Repp of East Troy, WI, Hailee (Dakota Mathez) Repp of Lindenhurst, IL, and Kamron DeSantis of Eagle, WI; her three grandchildren, Jack, Dean and Matteo; and her two siblings, Kristin Farmer of Waukesha, WI and Jennifer (Joe) Selke of Wales, WI. She is also survived by a number of other relatives and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Dean and Kary Schwartz.
