ForeverMissed
Denise Kay Leiberher Carbary, 61, formerly of Campbelltown, died February 5, 2021 in Flagstaff, Arizona after a short but fierce battle with cancer.

Born May 29, 1959 to the late Kenneth B. Leiberher and Edna Weaber Leiberher. She graduated from Palmyra High School and has lived in Virginia, Texas and Arizona. Denise was very proud of her successful professional dog grooming business "Puppy Paradise" which she created and ran for over forty years.  She continued her education and received her certificate as a skin esthetician for pets. She LOVED animals and was always surrounded by her loving paw friends.  She devoted her whole life loving and caring for her dogs, cats, ducks and bunny. She was very adventurous and enjoyed traveling and seeing new sights. She loved and was thankful for her walks through the forest with her dogs. She loved the outdoors. She was feisty and fun and a kind, supportive person. 
She is survived by her husband of over 20 years Randy Carbary and her four stepsons Steven, Nathan, Silas and Michael. Also her siblings Bonnie Leiberher of Mechanicsburg, Kenneth Leiberher of Jonestown, Quentin Leiberher of Palmyra and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her sister Gail Leiberher (please see gail-ann-leiberher.forevermissed.com).
We ask you to help honor Denise by leaving pictures and remembrances here. However, there will also be an online/Zoom memorial service at a later date. More information will be posted as soon as it has been arranged.

Denise and I met at an Assembly in Grantville, PA. She and I became friends right away! As if we had always known each other. She made everyone feel that way. Her smile and laugh still echo in my mind. A dear sweet friend that taught me so much and always understood how I felt. I will always remember our fun times in the ministry, our walks together and working at Puppy Paradise! My thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends and fur babies.

Denise was a very kind, hard working woman who took incredible care of my little dog for four years. My heart breaks to know that her life was cut so short, and my heart grieves for her family. I'm sorry I don't have any pictures, but I have four years of wonderful memories. She will be deeply missed my family and I.

Oh Nisey, How you will be missed! You were such a part of my teens and twenties, you were our adopted older sister. So MANY memories. From Wardensville to Winchester to Stephens City...we went together. You taught Wendy how to drive stick-shift, what patience! I loved working summers at Puppy Paradise and our family building the float for the parade. Countless meetings and field service and picnics. I remember getting a new dress I was so proud of, and you walked into the meeting and sat down next to me in the same dress. :) My graduation trip to Texas to visit your friends was definitely memorble to say the least. So many sleepovers and dog walks in the field. Having to wash the dogs down when we got back because they rolled in the cow poop! You were my first kindred spirit - a true animal lover. They say animals and children are good judges of character and you were always a hit with both. What an impact you had on my life. Although Randy stole you away (I knew you'd be in good hands) you were the type of friend that we'd just pick up where we left off. I can never wear the color yellow without thinking of you. You were so full of life and love and sunshine. I'm so proud of you fighting as hard as you could. Now your fight is over, you're resting in peace and soon Jehovah will call. Then we can play with the big animals - the lions, tigers, elephants, giraffes. I love you and miss you so much!!!

We didn’t do a lot together, but what we did do, we did with and for Jehovah. Service, chats after meetings, chats after memorial, chatting about our love of all animals. You are a dear sister and I look forward to spending many hours with you in Jehovah’s new world. We will spend tons of time with all Jehovah’s animals. Can’t wait to see you again.

My heart goes out to the family and friends of this very dear lady, my friend and confidant, Denise. Such a gentle heart, closely guarded by a quiet, strong exterior. She was there to help if asked,but never asked for help,never said an unkind word to anyone, full of energy and ideas, and so much fun! I'll miss our hikes, I'll miss her love of swimming, even in the winter, her pets and her love for them, I'll miss her love for my boys ( dogs) and always hold close the memory of the day she went with us to the shelter to get them. I'll miss her loyalty, her smile, her sincerity, but most of all the walks we shared and the deep heartfelt talks. There is an emptiness where she once was that won't ever be filled, until we see each other again, until then, she is so missed and so loved. An awesome individual!

To my Best Friend,

Sometimes life draws those we come to know and love by chance. I met you way back in 2002 you took care of our dogs, we took long walks, hung out, cried together, laughed together, made fun of Randy and Kevin when they were not looking. I will never forget the couch stories and the fun we had together. Only regret, never being able to say good bye. Was not meant to be cause next time I see you it will be with a hug hello and no masks....
Love you so much Dear Sister....

Jacquie
Love you Randy

I have many fond memories of Denise growing up. I remember hanging out at her trailer in Winchester as a kid. We would have so much fun in service together. She always made me feel special. Denise always had a big smile & strong hug waiting for you when she saw you. And I’ll always remember her love of dogs. We will really miss her. Can’t wait to see her in paradise
