I remember sitting in your lap and steering your Fiat going down the freeway in So Cal. The roadtrip we took going up to Yreka when I was seven, catching my first fish (trout), and you showing me how to clean and cook it. You were always so down to earth, tell it like it is, and I always loved that about you. I love you always Aunt Penny
My best friends sister never had the pleasure of meeting her but knew her from her Sister talks Rest In Peace Penny .They say that God alway plucks the best sweet Lady
Penny you will forever be missed. We will cherish all memories we have with you. Until we meet again, we love you!
Penny was unique, funny, quirky sometimes stubborn. She told old bad cheesy jokes, and loved little kids. Penny was always ready to hit the casino, usually winning. I will miss her every day. She had a generous heart. I love you big Sis!!!See you later.
Rest In Peace. Love always Lesley
You will be missed. I love you Aunt Penny.
Nice write up for a generous hearted sister.
I'll always remember my first memory of Aunt Penny, when she sang the "Gopher Guts" song and the smile and laughter that followed. Nothing but fond memories, will miss her.
