I believe that Punky was the longest standing member of the KELSO Eagles Auxiliary. She was a well loved member and will be sorely missed. I'm sure her and Idabelle are playing bingo together again

It was an honor to know Punk! What a character she was, the memories of her bring a smile to my face! I know she is resting in peace but my thoughts and prayers go out to her loved ones. What a void she has left behind but what a mark she's left too.
