Denise Geraldson Plowman has been called to join our Lord and her heavenly family on December 30, 2023.
Denise, born June 14th, 1967 (Flag Day) to Dale and Darlene Geraldson of Vallejo entered this world like a ray of sunshine with a little bit of hurricane!
In 1975 Denise’s parents and sister, Dawn, relocated to Napa which would be her hometown for the remainder of her blessed and eventful life.
Denise attended Browns Valley Elementary where she met Tiffany Iverson and Becky Larkin who both would become her lifelong besties.
Denise graduated in 1985 from Napa High School.
What comes next for someone like Denise. They move to Hawaii of course! She and her friend Jackie lived there for a year but Denise missed her Big Sister and family so much that she moved back home. Denise met John Plowman in 1993 and fell in love. John and Denise were married on New Year’s Eve and in March of 95 they welcomed their first baby boy, Dale Elliot, who would forever be her “Little Mister”. Together they would go on random day trips to Berryessa that could very easily become (days) trips. November of ‘98, her and John were blessed with a second baby boy, Willis Reese, whose talent and energy kept her amazed and continuously breathless. The apple didn't fall far from the tree!
For the past 17 years you would find Denise working for The Napa Valley Unified School District as a Campus Supervisor at New Tech High.
This was her calling. She felt so blessed to be a part of the kids' lives as the “fun and cool” Ms. Plowman, the “your busted” Ms. Plowman and lastly Ms. Plowman “who brings her really awesome dog, Grady, to school” Ms. Plowman!
Her dog, Grady blessed Denise’s world in 2020 and was her cherished companion, friend, confidant and snuggler.
Denise’s playfulness and infectious laugh brought smiles to even the darkest days.
Grandmother Marianne Foerder, and recently (2021) her mother and faithful sidekick, Darlene Geraldson
Denise is survived by her Father Dale Geraldson
(Cindy), husband John Plowman, eldest son Dale Plowman (Danielle and their Baby Girl to be), her youngest son Willis Plowman, her sister Dawn Rhodes(Kevin), nephews Connor and Kameron, and niece Courtney. Her besties Becky Gonzalez and Tiffany Miller and their families; and of course her canine soul mate, Grady along with several Napa natives she befriended along her life’s journey.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 1040 Orchard Ave in the clubhouse at 1:00 P.M. Thursday, February 8, 2024.
