Penny Lynn Pruett departed this world to abide with her Lord and savior in the house he has prepared for her on Sunday, March 31, 2019. A memorial service will be held for Penny on Saturday, April 13, at 12 p.m. at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 402 South Ballenger Highway, Flint, Michigan, led by Pastor Jeffrey B. Walsh, with family visitation at 11 a.m.

Penny was a selfless, loving and caring woman of strong Christian faith with a sharp wit and contagious smile. She had more concern for the needs of others than for her own. She derived happiness and joy from the fulfillment of her family and loved ones and from being with them at every opportunity. Penny did enjoy fishing, camping, hunting, the cabin, campfires, cooking and feeding people, and laughing at every chance she got.

Penny Lynn Tyler was born in Muskegon, Michigan on June 9, 1946 to the late Cecil and Edith Tyler (Youmans). Penny was a graduate of Bentley High School, class of 1964. She leaves to our care her faithful and devoted husband, Al. Penny Lynn Tyler married Allen Lee Pruett on April 18, 1964 and shared a full life, side by side, in their 54 years of marriage. They had four children, Wayne (Kathy), Missy (Albair), Roger (Shelley), and Carmen (Darrin) and she is survived by all, as well as her twelve grandchildren, Natalie, Andrew, Gretchen, Jonathan, Jacob, Angelo, Kirsten, Aaron, Antonio, Aiden, Cecil, and Liam and her three great-grandchildren Cameron, Lily, and Hunter. She is survived by her brothers Howard and Jack, her sisters Barb and Sheila, and joins her late brothers Fred and Sandy. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

The most hilarious aunt in the world. Made me laugh, at every other sentence that came out of her mouth. Every time you seen her she would greet you with a kiss, and a hug, and wanted to make you something to eat. The more family that was together the happier she was. She loved singing, especially Patsy Cline songs. I'm so glad she was my aunt, and not someone else's. Because I wouldn't have all these memories of her. Grateful, glad, and blessed that she was part of my life. ❤

The picture is beautiful! Exactly as I remember full of laughter and joy! She was so faithful and full of love. We should all be so gracious. So many memories of her little stabs at my dad who usually got the best of people, but not with Aunt Penny lol. love you all!

I loved my Aunt Penny so much. She was always kind and loving to me. I will miss her wonderful sense of humor. I enjoyed listening to her and my Dad laugh and joke with one another when we were small. They will both be so missed. I so enjoyed my time with her, and staying the night with she and my favorite cousins. I was always flattered that at family reunions, or when we saw our parent's school friends, everyone always thought I was her daughter, because I thought she was beautiful. I love You all, and you are all in my prayers.

Penny will be greatly missed. We shared deer seasons,camping trips, cards, phone calls or a cup of tea in the morning at my kitchen table. I love you Sis & will see you again. Love & prayers to Al & family.
