Mrs. Denise Arliska Woods Kidd was born September 21, 1955, in Washington, D.C. At the age of 17, she married Arthur Lee Moon and later had three children, Arthur, Nickey, and Maurice. She was the daughter of Vernelle Catoe Butler and the late Benjamin Woods. She was married to Ronald Kidd, who survives. In addition to her father, she was preceded in death by two siblings, John Woods and Adrienne Holmes. She peacefully entered into eternal rest on Friday, September 2, 2022, at the Gordon Hospice House in Statesville, N.C., surrounded by family.

She gave her children a legacy that will last for generations to come. That of love! She was known for her love and sayings to her children like “that’s my baby,” “love you all the much everywhere,” and never goodbye but “see you soon.” And with that, we say we will see you soon, Momma!

Celebration of Life Services will be conducted Thursday, September 8, 2022, at 3 p.m. at The Living Church Ministries, 1608 Shelton Avenue, Statesville, N.C. Visitation will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. Pastor John Mott will officiate.
