The loss of Penny and her mom is such a sad tragedy. I graduated with Penny and although we were not close friends, her bright smile and easy going personality is what stood out about her. May the love and graces of God, family and friends help those who loved her make sense of all of this. Thought and prayers to you.

My prayers go out to Penny and Barbara's family. I had lost touch with Penny after moving to Florida but have often wondered how she was doing. We had lots of fun together on the lake and enjoyed working with her Mom, my first job. I am sorry I did not keep in touch and to hear of the tragic ending and not being able to be there to show my respects.

I knew and graduated with Penny in 1975. We enjoyed some time together as friends. Although we lost touch through the years, I remember her as happy and friendly. My sympathy goes out to her family.

Penny was my friend, my very good friend, always there to help out even when she felt not so well herself. When I think of Penny, there is always a boat and water involved...and lots and lots of sunshine! Penny, you were the sunshine in a lot of our lives you touched. You are the sunshine of my life!Love, Linda
