Penny Sue Yelton, passed away due to a car accident Thursday, Dec.28, 2017, in Redwing, Minnesota. She is the daughter of Jean Carol Cash Yelton and the late William Donald Yelton.
She is survived by her mother Jean, daughter Brandy Jordan and daughter-in-law Denine Jackson. She was preceded in death by her son, Jeffrey Jackson.
She was born in Covington, Kentucky on Nov. 29, 1957. She is the second of five children and leaves behind her siblings, Vickie Griffin (Dennis), Peggy Yelton, Ed Yelton (Donna) and Francie Terry (Robert). She has four grandchildren and many nieces and nephews who love her dearly.
She was a woman of many talents. One of those was loving people and "taking in strays". If you needed a home, she gave you one and you became a part of her family forever.
A memorial service was held on Jan. 6, 2018 in Independence, Missouri and her ashes were interred at Trinity Episcopal Church.
Our family wishes to thank her partner, Doug Johnson, for the wonderful life she shared with him these past few years. He was the love of her life and will be forever loved by our family. We find comfort in knowing that this life is not the end, that we will see her again and that she is now rejoicing with her son and those who have gone before us. In Penny's honor, please hold your family close and never miss a chance to say I love you.
