Margaret "Peg" Penny, 87, of Carbondale, passed into the loving arms of Jesus on Sunday morning at home. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 48 years, John S. Penny, on March 29, 2002.

Born in Carbondale, the daughter of the late Martha McDonald, she was a graduate of Benjamin Franklin High School, Carbondale. Margaret was a lifetime member of Saint Rose of Lima Church, Carbondale. She worked for J.C. Penney Stores, Carbondale and Scranton, for many years until she retired after the birth of her grandson, the bright shining light of her life.

She enjoyed reading and was a lifelong fan of the soap opera "General Hospital". Margaret absolutely loved being a wife, mother and grandmother. She was blessed to be able to live out her life in her home with the loving assistance of her daughter and nieces, Peggy Jean Buonomo, Sister Ann McDonald, IHM and Jean Marie McIvers.

Margaret's family would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to Dr. Neal Davis and Dr. Joseph Marzzaco and nurse Kim Rucker of Paragon Home Health for their dedicated care of our dear mother.

Surviving are her daughter, Mary Martha Penny Dottle and her husband, Dave, Carbondale; a grandson, David J. Dottle, Florida; and nieces and nephews.
