Denise Darlene (Pritchett) Drywater, of Tahlequah, Oklahoma passed away on May 13, 2022, at her home at the age of 63. Denise was born on February 18, 1959, the daughter of Dennis Pritchett and Louise (Towie) Pritchett in Compton, California.

Denise or some may have known her as "Brownie" was the sweetest person you could have ever met. She would have given you the shirt off her back and never expected anything in return. Brownie might have been stubborn at times, but she was a strong woman who put up a fight against any obstacle she had to face and she always did it with a huge smile on her face. In her spare time, she loved being around her family, especially her grand babies. They meant the absolute world to her. She loved to go fishing, go driving on the back roads, go to the casino, and play games on her phone. She was a hippy at heart, and loved tye dye and the color purple. There was nobody like Brownie and never will be. She was truly one of a kind and will be missed by all she leaves behind.
She was preceded in death by her parents; Dennis and Louise Pritchett, sisters; Sharon Scraper, and Carolyn Castillo, grandchildren; J'Lee Drywater and Dillion Pritchett.
She is survived by a loving family which includes her husband; Darren Drywater, children; Joseph Pritchett and wife Samantha, Latricia Proctor and husband Nicholas, Eric Rooster and step children; Kyle Drywater and wife Kosie, and Jimmy Drywater and wife Alissa, sisters; Jolene Pritchett, and husband Kevin, Ladonna Garcia and husband Jose, and Karen Pritchett, brothers; Darrell Wilson, Sammy Wilson and wife Phyllis and Clayton Pritchett, grandchildren; Samara Pritchett, Logan Pritchett, Braxton Rooster, Victor (Smiley) Smith, Eric Rooster, Jr., Kaleb Proctor, Angel Rooster, Sophie Proctor, Niko Proctor, Desmond Proctor, Jarryn RattlingGourd, Jarrik RattlingGourd, Rayden Drywater, Brenda Drywater, Darren Drywater and Jacob Drywater. Numerous nieces, nephews, family and friends she leaves behind.
