We are so sorry for your loss. I remember Penny as very kind and loving. I remember being so pleased to be asked to serve at her wedding to Robert as a child and her red kick butt cowboy boots she had on at my wedding shower. Penny is a beautiful person inside and out and will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to your loved ones and grateful she now feels no pain. Melanie Thorne

Penny, You always gave so much love to those around you. You made everyone in the room smile. If anyone needed a little more love, you were always there to give it. The world is a little less bright now. Penny be a peace and know that you lived your life beautifully. WE love you.

Penny was a great step-mother to my boys. I often said she didn't know the story of Cinderella. She treated them as if they were her own and showed them a lot of love. She was an incredible lady. May Father bless and comfort her parents, family and friends with peace of mind for we all know that though she will be missed her suffering has stopped and we will see her again. Connie

The ravages of MS kept Penny from coming to be with our ward family at church on Sunday. This was unfortunate because she had a way of instantaneously brightening lives. Many ward members will now not know this -- at least in this lifetime. But, the few of us that did -- as we visited with her in her apartment -- will be forever blessed. We will miss you Penny, but look forward to a reunion in the after-life, where you are free from disease and pain. Love, Bishop Underwood & The River 7th Ward

Penny was a blessing to all of us that she touched while she was here. Boston would not have been the same without her. She is finally free from the MS. God bless her family and all of us who loved her. Come visit anytime Penny girl.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Penny was a good friend to me. She was my first friend I met at Litton in 1984.We had many fun times together with her and Robert picnicing in the mountains and we both started building our homes at the same time. Her and Robert would come over and check on the progress of our home and leave us little messages in the snow and Bill(My ex)and I would do the same to them. She was so sweet to my daughter Jamie. Jamie loved her.She had a heart of gold thats for sure. Larry and I were just thinking of her earlier this week. We will all miss her greatly.
