Penny treasured her faith, family and friends. Michael is the love of her life, best friend and soul mate. She found joy in the simple things of life. Her sense of humor, exuberance and love of life was reflected in everything she did. Penny loved her gardening, crafts, reading, tennis, golf, bridge and boating, but her greatest joy and passion was to spend time with her loved ones.
