PENNY, Joan Elisabeth (Nee: Fowler)

Passed away unexpectedly on November 18th, 2020.

Predeceased by her husband Dr. Foster J. Penny, her father Leonard A. Fowler, and her mother in-law Hazel O. Penny.

Survived by her daughter Andrea, mother Grace, sisters Susan (Steve) and Jill, brother Chris (Kathy), her sister in-law Aarol (Ken), her father in-law Jim, nieces and nephews: Luke (Kate and their two children), Eva (Luke and their four children), Christian, Sarah, Kaitlin, Brodie and Chelsea (Jamie and their two children) as well as her long time friend Deb (Mike) and goddaughter Carrie.

Joan was a registered nurse who was hard working and set high standards for the care she provided to others. She was immensely proud of her career. She was also a dedicated mother, a loving wife and a loyal friend. Joan will be remembered for her beautiful smile, her devotion to the people she loved, her wild sense of humour, her infectious laughter, her fiery personality, her love of show jumping and her passion for horses.

The knowledge that Joan is now at peace with Foster and her father has helped lessen the void left in the hearts of those that loved her.

Cremation has taken place. Due to COVID-19, a private family gathering to celebrate her life will happen at a later date.

Donations in her memory may kindly be made to the Multiple Sclerosis society of Canada.

In care of Needham Funeral Service.

Dear Andrea and family,
I was so sorry to read that your Mom has passed away.
I met your Mom when she and your Dad first came to London and she came to work at St Joes in dialysis. She was a great nurse and lots of fun.
My husband sold them their first house here. I remember well when you were born.
I also remember Sterling...your Mom went with me to pick out our dog, Casey, a toy poodle too.
You will miss her terribly and I am so very sorry Andrea.Your parents loved each other very much and now they are back together. My sincerest condolences.
Patty Bogdanski
