Let the memory of Denny be with us forever
  • 60 years old
  • Born on March 8, 1955 .
  • Passed away on May 1, 2015 .

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Denny Murly- nee Pretorius, 60, born on March 8, 1955 and passed away on May 1, 2015.
We will remember her forever.


Denny was a loving sister,  She enjoyed spending time with family and friends.  Denny enjoyed traveling and meeting new people and experiencing everything life had to offer

Denny loved her family and was very giving.  She did so much for everyone and who ever knew her, knows what a truly unselfish person she was.  I am sure everyone would have a different story to tell you about how thoughtful, loving, caring, and giving she was.  Denny was truly a one of a kind person.

It is hard to imagine what life is going to be without her beautiful smile and wonderful sense of humor.  She meant different things to so many different people.  I am sure there would never be two stories that are the same.

Denny never met a stranger, she always made them feel welcome no matter who they were.  Denny was also an inner strength and that naturally drew people to her.  

Denny was a massive loss to our heart and our family. We never imagined that I/we would have to say goodbye so soon. We are crushed beyond any words. Words cannot describe the emptiness inside each and everyone of us. We know you are at peace now with our heavenly father and always know you will never be forgotten forever in our hearts. With our love always. Until we meet again my dear sister.

You will be forever in my heart and thoughts.
Sleep tight my sister
Until we meet again.
your Boet

My darling sister Denny. Wishing you a very heavenly birthday, sorry I am only wishing you now as I have been visiting mom and Lorna in Cape Town. Miss you so much, went to see where your ashes were thrown and sad a prayer for you which I am sure you heard. I was surprised when visiting Hilary, he gave me some left over ashes which Jade gave him, so I took the ashes to Cape Point where Dad is and scattered the remainder by Dad, said a prayer for you both and at least some of you is now with Dad. Spent a lot of time with Mom who I am sure will be with you one day soon, she is getting old and am sure that she will go to sleep and not wake up one day. I spent time with Andre, Robin, Hilary and Mark and stayed with Lorna who made my stay very pleasant, thank you Lorna and also Walter. Well Denny hope you are ok were ever you may be, miss you like crazy . Miss and love you my gorgeous sister. All my love Your Boet Keith

Happy birthday to you Denny - hope you are blessed where you are with happy thoughts and great memories. Chris and I talked about you the other day re Red O and its still amazing how much I grew to like you and your spirit and yet never met you - so so so wish I had. I would love to give you a hug but can't so you are being sent one for your 63rd birthday.

The world is missing a very determined lady who amazed me with her clarity of wishes. Not gone - you live on in your family.

Dearest Denny, about two months ago I received a "memory" on Facebook from you, saying I was in your thoughts. It did bring tears to my eyes. You are often in my thoughts, and I have this sense of happiness for you, I believe you are well and still so loved and remembered here at the same time ...

My Darling friend, I remember the days on the vlei with the family on the boat, the quick showers we stole in the hotel to wash of the sand, the triplets that we babysat and refused to give them lunch until they pronounced the words correctly, the naughty times we had when we went to muizenberg with a dart in our pocket hitchhicking lifts to clubs, sneeking into boys homes and sneaking out afraid that we would be caught and ran to the bus stop down the road and giggled and luaghed out heads off, working school holidays and OK bazaars and the shoe store, and so I can carry on and on, but the pleasure of spending time with you a year ago was precious, our chat's on skype and our messages until 2 days before your passing, I will never forget, till we meet soon and carry on with our friendship as if we never parted, I will love u always and see u sonn, love u lots my darling friend xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Mom, Moo, Deniiiiiise gosh I miss you. I miss seeing your face when I get home from work desperate to hear how my day was. I miss seeing Jeremy Kyle in the sky planner. I miss your laughter. I miss the abundance of love you have for Ryder. I miss all of you....even the shouty parts. The strength and courage you showed through everything you faced was a force to be reckoned with....even though some days you didn't feel it. Mom it was through your sheer will and determination that we got SIX extra years with you. You got to greet two more Grandsons. I couldn't be prouder of you. Thank you for fighting so hard....until we meet again Mom....I will love you and carry you with me. Love your heartbroken daughter Jadie xxxxx

It is said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. I remember Denny as a young girl when I last saw her nearly fifty years ago. What I vividly recall of her is her, to me, remarkably attractive eyes. I met up with her again a while ago on a social website and, during the exchanging of messages, came to the perception that she had a most kind and noble soul. Denny displayed these qualities in abundance to me during the last number of months of her sojourn on earth. Denny, thank you for showing me what I should aspire to become. I look forward to reading the gentility radiating from those eyes once more when my time is due.

My dearest Denny, I only knew you a short while on FB but the moment we started chatting it felt as if I had known you forever. The angel readings you shared touched my heart and showed me your heart. I know you are an angel now. Thank you for being my friend. I will never forget you.
Posted by Lynnette Endean on 13th May 2015
We never got to meet - Chris knew you in person - I knew you via the phone calls, texts and pm. A friendship founded on information re ancestral and ILR that grew when you shared re the primary and then the secondary. You were, 99% of the time, positive, determined, uplifting. I salute you. You ARE with us, in your children, your beloved grand-children and siblings. I so wish we had met - would love to have discussed the ceiling with you ha ha ha.

Precious 'cool beans' Den, I still think if I whatsapp you, you'll respond... for the sheer privilege of walking into each others lives over 20 years ago and a soul mate I only could have wished to have prayed for, for the giggles, the tears, your immeasurable grace and wisdom, grit and endless ability to let the light shine in. Thank you for being my friend and indelibly enriching my soul and my world. Forever in my heart and forever I love you. Until we meet again my adored friend xxx

To a dear friend, Denny, Thank you for the time and generosity shared when I was younger and in later years. For our chats and our laughs. For the example you set as a mother and person in general. You will always be remembered as gentle, kind and patient. It was a privilege to know you. Love Desiree.

My dear dear friend Denny. Who always managed to make me laugh, who was always there for me. I remember us walking our first borns in Durban. Poor as church mice, trying to loose our baby fat on a stricked diet!!!!! Buying a fresh loaf of bread and finishing the loaf before we got home. I have so many wonderful memories with my friend Denny to carry with me forever. Den fly forever high until we meet again. Thank you for being my friend ...I will love you forever...
