Penny was born on March 27, 1940 and raised in Decatur, GA, the 2nd child of Walton and Rosalynn Bobo and born after her brother Earl. Counted among the gifts of her childhood were close family, lifelong friends, a comfortable home and a solid education. Out of these grew her love for life, tremendous spunk and devotion to others. She was a student and teacher of the Bible throughout her life, beginning with her family and extending to countless Sunday School classes, women’s Bible studies, retreats and even to her retirement home. Her example of faith and prayer through both trials and triumphs gave her entire extended family a priceless and imperishable spiritual legacy.
