Our loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Cora Helen Thorson Penne, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, January 12, 2019. She is preceded in death by her husband, Gilbert Penne; her parents, Jorgen and Clara Thorson; and her siblings, sister Joyce Paulsen, and brothers Leonard and Robert Thorson. She is survived by her children, daughters Carol Stupka, Mary Penne, Sandra Brady, and son Gary Penne. She is also survived by her six grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren.

Dear Grandma, I will always remember you as such a loving and caring person. Having get togethers at your house with family during the holidays was always my favorite memory, playing board games, eating dinner, and catching up with you and family sharing funny moments. Riding my Big Wheel around your drive, washing your car, and mowing your lawn. These are just a few of the many memories that bring a smile to my face and I’ll cheerish forever, I love you this isn’t goodbye just goodbye for now. I’ll see you again, Love Christopher.

Dear Grandma you have been there my whole life and I will always remember you. I will never forget our memories making cookies, rosettes and going to lunch. We talked and shared times of happiness and sadness and I will truly miss that. You have left behind so many loved ones that will always carry you in their hearts.

Love, Corri
