Peggy “Penny” Joan (Lloyd) Scolaro of Cedar Rapids passed away on Monday, April 19th at Northbrook Manor Care Center following a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

She is survived by her husband of 62 years Marion (Bud) Scolaro; 3 children Kelly (Tom) Murdock, Mitchell Scolaro and Vincent Scolaro.  Grandchildren Tony Scolaro, Whitney Brandt, Jackson Brandt, Caleb Murdock, Marnie Hill-Woodworth and Paige Rose Nielson- Scolaro.  Sisters Judy (Kent) Bunn, Sandy Rierson, Sharon (Monte) Barton, Kathy (Mark) McCalley; sister-in-law Antoinette Snyder; brother-in-law John Serbousek and many nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her step-father Ronald, mother Arlene; sisters Connie Broderson, Rhonda Snow and Lauretta “Lou” Serbousek; brother Larry Lloyd; brother-in-laws Monte Rierson and Skip Snyder.

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.

No funeral services are scheduled at this time.  In lieu of flowers please send donations to greater Iowa Chapter Alzheimer’s Association.
