    She was not only a wonderful person God gave us all, but she was also extraordinary mother, grandmother and so kind to every stranger she greeted. I loved my Grandma Penny so much and now she has gone to be with the Lord and with all her loved ones she has missed for so long. I am thankful for the many years with her as I grew up and have learned so much from her. I will always have you in my heart everyday “Grandma Penny” and will cherish those memories we built with you. Thank you, Lord for giving her the peace and comfort to come be with you.
