BETHKE, Penny (Penelope Anne) - Peacefully on Saturday, June 11, 2011 after a courageous battle with cancer. Penny was the daughter of the late Norma and Raymond and the oldest sister of Ray Jr. (Laura), Kate, Mark and Mike (Robin). Loving aunt of Emma and Cameron, Leah, Kimberley and Lindsey, Sebastian and Alex, Jason and Kaeti (Frank). As Kaeti's godmother, Penny held a special place in her heart for Kaeti and Frank's children, Julianna and Sam. Penny will be missed by her cousins, Jim Planinsheck and Mary Parrott and her many lifelong friends. We will always remember Penny for the important life lessons she taught us: be passionate in your work, every good meal begins with good wine and ends with a fine dessert, there is nothing better than reading a good book and drinking a good scotch and most importantly, family is everything. Memorial visitation at the Paul O'Connor Funeral Home, 1939 Lawrence Avenue East (between Warden and Pharmacy), Wednesday, June 15th, from 7 p.m. until the time of our service in the chapel at 8 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Joseph's Health Centre would be appreciated.
