Denise was born to Samuel and Cecile Hodges on August 14, 1946 in Amarillo, TX.

She worked at Bank of the Southwest for many years then went on to work for Dr. William East for 18 years.
Denise (Grammie) cherished her role as a wife, mother, and grandmother. She had a love for her family that will never be forgotten. She absolutely adored her grandchildren and would make an effort to be at every event no matter her pain or illnesses. Whether it was dodging volleyballs or foul balls, as she saw herself as a magnet for errant balls, she was always there to support her grandkids’ sporting events. She was a die-hard Tascosa Rebels, Wrecking Crew, and Dumas Demonettes fan. She will be dearly missed by all that knew her and especially her grandkids as they were such a very important part of her life.
Denise is survived by her husband, James L. Berryman; her two sons, Bryan Berryman and wife Lori, and Tony Berryman and wife Veronica; seven grandchildren, Brylie Kate Berryman, Brandt Berryman, Bennet Berryman, Brooklyn Berryman, Savannah Berryman, Spencer and Samuel Berryman; her nieces, Sheri Cash-Garcia and Lisa Boyd; and nephew, Mark Cash.
