I wanted to share about how sweet Penny Clark was. I’ve known her for many many years but I haven’t seen her in years until one evening before covid my husband and I was visiting my mother in law at Stanleytown nursing home and Penny was across the hall from her. As soon as I heard her say Jan I was like hey Penny. Omg it was so good to c her. I introduced my mother in law to her and from that day she would ask my mother in law to come in her room and color. I thought Penny has not changed still so sweet and thoughtful. I will miss her but I know she’s in no more pain. I have a picture that her and my mother in law colored and I will cherish it. Rip Penny ❤️

Dean, George, Penny & I all grew up together and went to school together . We’ve been friends for many years, running into each other at school events for the kids or the grocery store was a regular thing for years. Time waits on no one so we’ve all gotten older and became grandparents. We’ve shared pictures of our babies as life moves on and now we have to say “Until we meet again, my friend.” RIP Penny, we will miss you! Gwyn & Dean Billings

As the days were upon us Penny and I shared a lot of laughter and smiles hugs caring friendship I visited her often as I went to see my mom . She was always so full of bright smiles I loved and shared alot of memories as we grew up together and lost touch but never give up on our friendship we had lot of things to look back on .One of the best memories was on her 59 birthday she was not letting me forget her day . Plus Penny and George has been together as long as me and my half Jay 39 years . During this difficult time.,please know my heart is with you 💓 all. And more importantly, the Lord is with you to hold you up ,to dry your tears,and bring you hope. May His faithful love give you peace . This I call to mind ,and therefore I have hope:The steadfast love of the lord never ceases;his mercies never come to an end;they are new every morning;great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:21-23 ESV

To Penny's family,

You have lost a precious jewel. Penny was and had always been one of the sweetest most precious lady ever. She and I had a lot of good fun and laughs in science class. We would laugh over anything!!!!

I was glad to be reconnected with her on facebook. I was so surprised when I learned about her sickness. Penny I know you are shining bright in beautiful heaven and having a great reunion with all your loved ones. Until we meet on that beautiful shore. Blessings and comfort to her family.

I am still at a loss for words. I lived across the street from her parents for at least 30+ years. We all shared so many laughs and made so many memories on their carport every night. Penny was one of a kind!! Best personality and always laughing or smiling. George, I know you are going to miss her as are the kids and the rest of the family. You had a good one George and so did Penny. I love all of you!!

I want to thank you for being the best my sister-in-law anyone could have. I love you and will miss you.
