Denise Ann (Binkowski) Jantzen, 50 years of age, of Beatrice peacefully left this world on Tuesday, June 27, 2023 at Beatrice Community Hospital and Health Center. She was born on June 9, 1973 in Denver, Colorado to Frederick and Letha (Holman) Binkowski. Denise spent her younger years moving around with her family due to her father’s work. After settling down in Denver in her early adult years, she moved to a small farm town in Nebraska to be closer to her parents. This, Denise would say, was the best move of her life. After moving to Nebraska, she met the love of her life, Scott Jantzen and they were married on October 11, 2008 in Beatrice. Denise had a love for children like no one else. After fostering over 40 children, Denise and Scott adopted four amazing children. She also had a love for helping others and everyone knew anytime anywhere, and Denise would be there by your side to help out with anything you need. She was loved by so many and will be greatly missed by every single one of her family and friends.
