Denise Ann Koziatek

September 24, 1942 — May 13, 2024


Denise Ann Koziatek, of Kearny, passed away on May 13, 2024.
Denise was a strong, independent, honest individual with a straight-shooter personality.

Denise will be dearly missed by her daughters Deborah Robertson (Douglas), Kathleen Wagner (John), Teresa Ford (Allan), Jill Hoffman (Bates), son Christopher Schwindt (Christina), sisters Maureen Phillips, Patricia Malson, and her brother William Coles. Denise was preceded in death by her brothers, Francis Coles and Joseph Coles, as well as her partner, William Schwindt.
In addition to her immediate family, Denise leaves behind a legacy of love and memories cherished by her numerous grandchildren - Jennifer, Amanda, Allan James, Michelle, John, Michael, Jessica, Andrew, Douglas William, Allison, Hunter, Ashley, Emma, Addison, Kharington, Charlotte and Christopher; and great-grandchildren - Zachary, Lucas, Brooklynn, Aiden, Peyton, Logan, Kileigh, Wesley, Olivia, and Jaxson, and many nieces and nephews.
A visitation service will be held to honor Denise's life on May 17 2024, at Halpin-Bitecola-Brookdale Funeral Home in Bloomfield. The visitation will take place from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM.
