I'm so sorry that I wasn't able to speak or share any memories at the memorial svc last week for my precious friend due to all of the tears flowing that day. But from the first time I met the cute little petite and bubbly, blonde-haired Penny Sue in 1991 at the billing office we both worked at, we found out that we had a lot in common. We both graduated the same year at high schools in Raleigh Co, both played in the band, both were fast on computers with strong work ethics, both loved animals and God, and of course, we both loved to laugh (too much tho as it once got us in trouble with one of our former mgrs). And despite me not being quite the big fan of Hank Jr as she was at the time, we still became instant friends and worked together for over 10 years, with many payday lunches spent together at Wendy's. Tho time and distance separated us a lot, we still kept in touch for almost 30 years, picking up where we left off when we got together or spoke on the phone like no time had lapsed at all. When she faced the most difficult health challenge of her life, she was such an inspiration to me and everyone of just how strong she truly was. I was so thankful God touched her when she recovered I often told her she was my Miracle Penny friend. There will never be another sister friend like you, Penny 'Superdue' and I can't put into words how much you will be missed. Sending love and friendship to you until we pick up where we left off one day again in heaven, I Love you, Kristy

I don't even know where to start. Penny & I grew up a street apart in MacArthur, WV. We were 1 yr apart in age. She didn't have a sis & mine was much younger than me so we were like sisters. We spent many nights at each other's houses, my dad & her mom were brother & sister. My memories of Penny Sue are of the light she shined for Jesus. Always encouraging others & lifting them up. She called me the night before my surgery, two days before she passed, and said Lynn you & God has got this & I love you!!!! If I had only known that was the last time I would hear her sweet voice. But I did get to tell her I loved her. She was gonna be one of my mentors pushing me through my PT for the next couple weeks, so when I go I listen & can hear her saying Lynn you can do this with the Lord's help. And I do & will.
I want to tell her boys Justin & Zach, she loved u and those grandbabies more then u will ever know & she was so proud of u both!!! Just remember the only One that can get you through this and remember the the love she had for her Lord that was always with her & she is fine in heaven!!! I love you all & am praying for peace & comfort for you all and her sweet sweet momma Scarlet that cares for & loves her family so much!!! I can hear Penny say I love my daddy & this one and that one but I loves my mommy the most!!!!! Penny Sue you will be so missed but never forgotten!! In loving regards. Your cousin, Lynn

My thoughts and prayers are with Penny's family. Penny was my best friend and way to many memories to just single one out because she was the best friend I could have ask for. She was always calling just to check up on me and make sure all was well I sure will miss those calls she was one of a kind truly special she was always there for me no questions asked. I'm so grateful that God sent Penny my way and we became best friends forever, my heart is so broken but I can hear Penny saying I will see you again in heaven, I love you. Well I loved her to my special friend I will miss her everyday. Missy

I went to school with Penny at Park and Woodrow. She was a beautiful girl who showed constant kindness to everyone in her path. The first and last time I saw Penny was in 2019 at our 35th HS reunion and one day when I visited her on a return trip to Beckley. I loved her and her heart. My favorite things she always said was "its ok; I have the Lord with me" and "okie dokie". My heart is broken and I will miss her. Condolences to her children, grandchildren, family and all those that loved her. I am so very sorry.
