Penny worked as a supervisor with Bank of America for 20 years. She enjoyed designing and creating costumes for the rollerskating community at Skateland and did so until the day she died. She made beautiful costumes for many generations of skaters and loved and adored her Skateland families. Penny also served her Lord through service with the Altar Circle and numerous other church tasks and jobs---all to His Glory! Penny was preceded in death by her husband, Ray Chism; Her survivors include her son and wife, Jim and Nancy; Her grandchildren: Jeannie Chism, Larry O'Rourke (wife, Annamarie), Trey O'Rourke (wife, Roxanne), Katy Lwin (husband, Alvin); Her ten great grandchildren; and her special friends at Lutheran Church of Prayer. We will greatly miss Penny's laughter and quiet, loving spirit of giving. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Lutheran Church of Prayer, The Altar Circle. www.bakersfield.com/obits
