Penny, a bubbly, fun-loving, free spirited person with an outgoing personality and kind soul. Always welcoming and made a person feel comfortable in every event/gathering. Always confident in her surroundings.
She humbly accepted our family as part of hers during the holidays, always making sure we never felt left out. She was like an Aunt to Justin and Ashley and we have several cherished fun and quirky memories of her with the kids.
Thank you, Penny for always being there for us, offering kind words of wisdom and support during some very challenging and difficult times throughout the years. Thanks for countless years of treasured memories!!
Miss you and love you Penny, always on our minds and forever in our heart!
Love you always....always, Don, Cindy, Ash & Justin
