Cremation services for Denise Carlene Scott-Murchison, 57 of Sallisaw, Oklahoma will be under the direction of Agent Mallory Martin Funeral Service, Inc.

She was born on October 27, 1963 in Carlsbad, New Mexico to Evelyn (Goodin) Scott and Marler Scott and while she was still young her family moved back to Leflore County. She graduated from Bokoshe High School in 1981. She went to Northeastern State University in Tahlequah where she met her future husband in 1982. They were married on August 12, 1983 at Calvary Baptist Church in Muskogee, Oklahoma. They spent 37 plus years together and raised a family. Denise passed away on May 26, 2021 in Fort Smith, Arkansas after a short stay in the hospital due to multiple medical conditions.

Survivors are:

husband: Robert E. Murchison of the home;

1 daughter: Nicole R. Stokes and Joshua of Sallisaw, OK;

1 son: Troy-Cook M. Murchison of Sallisaw, OK;

2 step-sons whom she considered her own: Kristopher M. Murchison and Amber of Shawnee, OK and their children and Robert A. “Tony” Murchison of Sallisaw, OK;

15 grandchildren

2 great grandchildren

and numerous other people who though they were not blood, whether they were related to her children, grandchildren or they adopted her, she considered them her own. Those people knew who Mom or Nana was and how she loved them.

She wanted people to celebrate her life and to enjoy life with their families because she enjoyed watching her family grow and she remembered much of the joys which came to her over her short time on this earth. She always worried more about others more than herself because she was a woman of feeling. She will be missed by those who knew her, but she will not be totally gone as long as she is remembered and carried in the hearts of those who loved her.
