October 17, 1940 - February 28, 2023
In loving memory ~
We said goodbye to Penny on February 28th, 2023. My mom was tough as nails. She was born in Dawson City, Yukon on October 17th, 1940. The family moved to North Vancouver when she was two. Mom moved to the Comox Valley in 1967 where she met my Dad, Doug. They were married on her 30th birthday and after a short stay in Cold Lake, Alberta she spent the next four years as a military wife in Germany.
Penny danced, gambled, smoked and made friends with strangers. She never apologized for who she was. She treated everyone the same and never minced a word in her life. The last fight was the fight of her life, she gave us every last second she could. Mom was like the stars in the cosmos that still shine their light long after they're gone. I'm proud of my mom and I feel her strength and generosity cursing through my veins.
May she Rest In Peace, God knows she deserves it.
