Mourning a Girl Scout Volunteer

| | Comments (4)

Denise Roney, co-leader of Ambassador Girl Scout Troop 8493, died in a car accident on Tuesday, December 1, in Mobile.  Denise leaves behind two daughters, Courtney, a 12th grader, and Brianna, a 5th grader, both Girl Scouts. 


Denise served our organization for many years as a parent volunteer, leader and co-leader.  Jeannie Napper, who volunteered with Denise, said, "She was always one of the best volunteers.  She was very dedicated to Girl Scouts, and had a passion for working with the girls."


Denise was devoted to her children, and her love for those children was apparent to everyone.  She was determined that they would have more opportunities than she did.


Please join us in keeping this family in your thoughts during this difficult time. We will be sure to pass on any words of encouragement and condolences to Denise's daughters.


Denise's family will be in my family's prayers -- her shining example of service and devotion is an inspiration to us.

I am so very sad to hear this. I have worked with and known Denise since I started working for Girl Scouts over 4 years ago. She was so incredibly kind-hearted and giving. When I worked with serivce unit 7 and recruited Girl Scouts, I always knew that I could count on Denise to take "one more girl" no matter how many times I called to ask her. She couldn't turn away anyone. My heartfelt sympathy goes to her family during this time as well as my prayer that the Lord will see them through it.

Psalm 119:50
My comfort in my suffering is this:
Your promise preserves my life.

I am so sorry to hear the sad news about Denise. I will be praying for the family and especially for her daughters at this difficult time and on into the future. I thank God that denise was a Mom that gave so much to her family and to others. She will be sadly missed.

Denise was my daughter's leader in 1st-3rd grade. She loved every girl in our large troop and she gave above and beyond to Girl Scouts. She would often buy extra supplies for our troop because she knew that someone would always not have something that they needed. You could always tell how much she loved her own children as well. They were the center of her life and I know that they will grow up to make her proud. We need to keep them both in constant prayer as they go through the rest of their lives without their Mom. I will always remember the wonderful times we shared at meetings and at Girl Scout Camp. She will be missed!
