Penny loved country music. She loved to sing and play guitar. She played in a country music band for a short time. She enjoyed baby-sitting and taking care of people. Penny was the life of every party and she lit up every room she walked into. She never met a stranger and the world is a little less bright without her in it.
Special thanks go out to the staff at Northbrook Manor for making the last years of her life safe, happy & comfortable.
