My condolences go out to the family of Yvonne Penn. I had the pleasure of working with her for 20+ years at WCIEDD/ Area 7 Agency on Aging and Disabled. She was an outstanding case manager and loved her work. We were blessed to have her on our team helping many senior citizens and disabled individuals of our community. May your faith help you through this difficult time.
