Penny worked for Marsh Supermarket and as manager of Neumode Hosiery. She enjoyed coaching YABA youth bowling for several years.
She was an avid fan of Betty Boop, collecting anything and everything Betty Boop. Penny also took pride in her extensive movie collection (especially horror); but her biggest thrill in life was spending time with her family and friends. Despite many physical challenges in her life, she was kind and generous to all who knew her and enjoyed life to the fullest. While she can never be replaced on this earth, there’s a very special angel looking out for us from above.
