Denise Villadsen Scheele passed away on January 6, 2017 in Katy, Texas surrounded by her family.
She was born in Orange, Texas on August 28, 1953 to Reno (Buddy) and JoAnn Villadsen. She was the seventh child of thirteen. She learned, at an early age to be independent, loving, and strong but most of all she learned to laugh. To quote her granddaughter, “I will never forget how beautiful her smile was or how her laugh lit up the room”.
”Aunt Neecy” will be remembered by all as the kind, caring, fun-loving, cookie- baking aunt. She loved to bake and there was never a birthday, graduation, baby shower, or party that she did not make the perfect cake for. Everyone remembers the special cakes she made for them and the wonderful cookies she always made for Christmas, but most of all they remember her love.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Buddy and JoAnn Villadsen, her first husband Rex Baldwin Sr., and her five brothers Skov, Maurice, Marshall, Peter, and Rodney.
She is survived by her husband, Jeff Scheele, her son, Rex (Buddy) Baldwin Jr., her stepson Chris Scheele, her three grandchildren, Faith, Trey and Nicholas Baldwin (who were the lights of her life), her brothers Michael Villadsen and wife Ada, Karl Villadsen, Robert Villadsen and wife Patsy. She is also survived by her sisters, Telisa Derosier and husband David, Mary Ann McDaniel and husband Terry, Monica Baldwin, Paulette Howington and husband Joe, and two generations of nieces and nephews.
Funeral services will be held on Saturday, January 14, 2017 at 2:00 PM at Forest Park Westheimer Funeral Home, Houston, TX 77077
